The gallery wall still sparks the imagination as one of the most fun ways to add a little of your own personal touch in your home. Perhaps the best thing to hit the world of art arranging since....anything, ever, there have been tons of iterations of frame presentations playing off this delightful trend, as well as tips for how to go about creating them yourself.

all lined up

This might not seem totally out of the ordinary—as a matter of fact, some might consider it a boring iteration of the trend—but simply lining portraits up on a wall (without any staggering) is not seen very often, which actually makes it a pretty divergent choice of arrangement. Lining art up frame to frame is a simple look that works perfectly in a simply designed space such as this one. Image via The Animal Print Shop

silhouettes & text

A monochromatic set-up of illustrations and text (all beige backgrounds, all black designs) is an interesting twist on the gallery wall, as the simple drawings and quotes work to uniform the look. Image via Natural Curiosities

all mirrors
