I LOVE gallery walls. I mean, who doesn’t? You can build them with family photographs, with abstract art, by color, by theme– the options are endless. In my opinion gallery walls communicate a casual, effortless look; a bit less formal than one giant piece of art. Gallery walls are intriguing and bring layers of interest into any room. I wanted to share with you two of my favorite artists for finding the perfect art piece for your gallery wall. And although I love the look of gallery walls and think these pieces of art are perfect as a collection, they also work beautifully as a stand alone piece!
MINIMAL TV WALL GALLERY
This is a little game I call “Let’s not make the tv the focal point of the entire living room” or at the very least let’s provide a little distraction so that it’s not the only thing my eye sees. I created a very minimal gallery wall around the tv that I am currently expanding floor to ceiling (!!!) I wanted to keep this gallery wall in a neutral color scheme, featuring family photographs and fine art. Anna With Love is featured here both in the top left frame and the far right frame. I am obsessed with Anna With Love; her work is stunning! Hands down, Anna is one of my favorite artists when looking for art!
Top Left: La Bicyclette by Anna With Love • Far Right: Oia Town by Anna with Love
What do you think of that blank white canvas? Is it interesting? Or does it need something? I’ve been thinking about replacing it with this painting from Lindsay Letters. What do you think?
Art: Oia Town by Anna With Love
My goal is to expand this gallery wall floor to ceiling with more art from Anna With Love as well as photos from our own family travels. I currently have my eye on the entire Greece Collection as well as this image and this image from Anna’s London Collection.
COLOR THEMED WALL GALLERY
Welcome to my office. The only place in the house where I can add as much pink as I want! Building a gallery wall based on a specific color palette helps create visual consistency — they all work together as one cohesive piece of art. This gallery wall is built completely around those two beautiful pink canvases by Lindsay Letters. Again, one of my most favorite artists. She creates the most beautiful abstract paintings along with gorgeous lettering prints. Pictured here you can see more work by Anna With Love (bottom right and bottom left- pink door), Britt Bass (top right), All Good Things Collective (far left), Rachel Allene (top left, “Less Hustle More Grace”) and Scarlet & Gold (lips print). By using a cohesive color palette I was able to feature multiple different artists, mediums, and styles. They all work together beautifully!
FAMILY PHOTOS + ABSTRACT ART WALL GALLERY
For a simple way gallery wall, pair an abstract painting with family photos. I paired this painting (one of my all time favorites from Lindsay Letters!!) with just 3 images from our family photo shoot last year. The family photos were bright and minimal letting the artwork be the focus. For continuity I used the same color frames for this gallery and incorporated all gold frames (top frames: Target, bottom frame: Framebridge.) As you can see I do love a good gallery wall. Do you love them too? Who are your favorite artists? I would love to know, especially as I being expanding that tv wall gallery!
