Columbus Ohio Photographer
I was recently contacted by Megan of Monkey Bar Storage in Columbus, OH. She reached out to collaborate with me on what it takes to design a gallery wall in your home to display your beautiful images! As a photographer who specializes in custom wall art and designing wall galleries for my clients, I was excited to help out! Megan wrote this blog post and included some helpful tips, as well as included images from my portfolio to design the walls. This is a custom feature I offer my clients from every session. I hope you enjoy the post!
Organizing Your Professional Gallery Wall
I often find myself wanting to reorganize my home without having the time and resources to give it that total makeover I’m hoping for. Yet, there are several different things I can change without spending a fortune and it eating up all my spare time. I have found that really focusing on my living room has given my home a fresher feel and helps any guests feel more welcome. Here are a few tips to beautify your living room by simply organizing the pictures on the wall.
Select Coordinating Frames
Make sure that the frames you choose for your gallery wall coordinate with the furniture and wall decor to keep the cohesive feel in your living room. Don’t be afraid to use different sizes, colors, and shapes as long as they all work together without clashing. You can also find artwork that fits with the style of your home to incorporate with your gallery wall.
Map It Out
Before you start hanging your pictures and artwork, be sure to layout each frame on the ground how you want it to look on your wall. Space them out exactly how you are thinking so you can take the measurements. You can also take string or tape to map out the bottom and top of the wall so you know how high up you’ll want your pictures to hang. Don’t forget to take note in the layout where sofas or shelving units may be so you don’t run into issues when you start hanging.
