Gallery walls should not be intimidating.  I love a gallery wall.  They can be quite affordable compared to the large piece of art you may need for the same space and they are a wonderful way to personalize your home.  It is easy to think you need uniform frames, uniform size and uniform subject in the frames but please do not get hung up on those things.

Floor to ceiling please.  Also, can we stop ignoring our bathrooms and treat their walls as carefully as we do our living rooms?  What a fabulous powder room this is!

I love the eclectic feel of this entire space, but especially the gallery wall.  Keeping the spacing between each frame or item holds it all together.  You are fooled into thinking this is a cohesive unit when in reality it is quite haphazard.  Throw something of interest in other than a painting or photograph.

This is so much my favorite because it is all of this owner's stuff!  We all have stuff.... we love our stuff.  Grouping it makes it work.

For the person who just cannot handle an eclectic wall go ahead with your uniform frames and subjects.  But consider playing with color.  Don't be so serious.

A good rule is to hang your large frames first then fill the gaps with the smaller ones.  Also, don't be afraid to use paper cut to size and work with the arrangements on the wall prior to actually hanging anything.

Look around your house.  If you're anything like me you will find quite a few random frames, pictures, paintings that couldn't quite hold their own on the wall and if you're really generous maybe throw that deer mount in the mix that you banned to the garage.  This might be what makes your space.
