Pinteresting: To Gallery Wall or Not to Gallery Wall



I've been seeing a lot of wall galleries on Pinterest lately and am contemplating whether or not to do it in my new place. Wall galleries can either look messy or anal, so how do you find the middle ground?? Here are some thoughts on what could make a wall gallery hit that middle ground -

  • don't use just one coloured frame, e.g. don't go with all black
  • don't use just one art medium, mix it up, e.g. illustrations, photography, drawings, paintings, etc...
  • don't place them frames to close together or too wide apart
  • don't overthink it, start with one and just go with the flow

Here are some examples from Pinterest, some which I like and others which I don't so much! What do you think about the wall gallery, yay or nay?
