I am not an interior designer, or have I studied design. But I do believe that making a gallery wall with pictures helps me to understand what I can do with my photos in the future. I’d like, for instance, to see my photos printed and hang them on my wall one day.
So far, I created 3 gallery walls in my little appartment, and through this process, I learnt a few things that I would like to share with you.
- First of all, think of where in your apartment you can create a gallery wall. Where would a gallery wall look good? Do you have an empty wall in your apartment?
- Take your time and choose the prints carefully. No need to rush through the selection. Ideally ask help from a friend (someone with a good taste). It’s also more fun to choose the prints with a friend, than choose them alone.
- I think it would be best if you choose prints of different dimensions. That was the mistake I did the first time. I placed an order of prints of the same dimensions and I realized that this was actually a mistake when I started putting the posters on the wall. I couldn’t create a gallery wall, when all the prints had the same size.
- The first time I made a gallery wall, I had envisioned the gallery in my mind. Unfortunately it turned out that what I had envisioned, didn’t look good on the wall. Most probably your gallery wall won’t look good immediately. But don’t let this dishearten you. Take the time to think what’s wrong, what you can do to improve ,and change the position of the posters until you are happy with the final result.
The posters on this wall are:
Naked lines no2 / Ink print no2 / Camera / Black shirt / Sun hat shade / Paris no7
