when i finally move into my dream house (is it soon? please tell me it’s soon!), i’m probably going to be a bit more ‘adult’ about my artwork. and by that i mean i’d like to be more selective, a bit more thoughtful about what goes up on my walls, and probably a whole lot more minimal. but it’s hard for me to simply discard or give away art, so what i thought i’d do is select one nook in my future dream house and create a little gallery. that’s where most of my treasured photographs, sketches and paintings will live — in a small gallery of their very own. i’d like it to look something like these gallery walls here – well-intentioned, but not pretentious. just a simple collection of the artwork i love and can’t leave behind.

  1. I’m not a big fan of the “gallery wall” and prefer to give art some room to breathe and let my eyes rest on a single piece rather than a conglomeration but I must say that these examples are lovely indeed.

    • Agree … you need lots of artistic abilities yourself to arrange a nice gallery. Most of them look somehow DIY. But I like the one on the fifth photo from the top.

  2. We are feeling these gallery walls. Great use of multiple shapes and sizes don’t you think? A couple of them are almost Gertrude Stein-style where no surface is left uncovered. Do you think it’s better to go with all the same kind of frame? We are trying to solve that issue for a client right now. Would love any thoughts. :)

    • i think it depends on the type of artwork and the kind of gallery look that appeals to you. it can be very streamline (like that hallway image), or more eclectic with a mix of frames. it’s really a matter of your client’s taste and the style of their home.

  3. Oh I love this post, i collect (small) art too and it´s a great inspiration for the hanging. There are many pictures on the photos I would like to have on my wall.

  4. I’ve started collecting a small art collection for when I finally have a home of my very own. It helps I think that I went to art school, and gathered a small collection of prints and paintings whilst I was there, but I can’t wait to display them all in a perfect space like these.
