Gallery photo wall – How to style your own

Dear Diary,

Photos….. we all have them, but do we display them?  No!! why not?  As a photographer, I am passionate about printing photos and not have them sit on a USB where no one can see and enjoy them.  A Gallery photo wall is the perfect answer for the special photos that deserves showing! (I apologise for the sound quality in the first half of the video, my mic was on a sensitive setting unfortunately)

Where would a gallery wall work?  My go-to solution for this is always a hallway, passage, corridor, staircase or landing.  I am not a big fan for lots of photos in bedrooms or living room, especially if it covers a whole wall, but in saying that, if you have no other space, then use what you have!  Rules are made to be broken, and you have to love your space at the end of the day!

Lets look at a few samples of Gallery photo walls

Structured and symmetrical 

Random sized in oval shape

Random with straight bottom edge


Random in rectangular shape

In all of the above samples, the most striking thing is the rhythm the gallery photos have, and its achieved by using the same coloured frames and monotone prints but you can obviously make your frames colourful and have colour prints!

 Use Frame sets for easy gallery photo wall application

To make it a little easier, buy frame sets that has different sizes and shapes like this and this one. Get creative and add a wall decal that adds a little fun to the area like this one.

This is such an easy and inexpensive way to add art to your wall not to mention how wonderful it is to seeing your memories captured and displayed.  Get out those fabulous photos, have them printed and displayed in your home!  Have fun DIY-ing this week friends 😉

Till next time
