How to create your own gallery wall

Learn how to create a picture-perfect gallery wall with framed art, canvases, photographs and souvenirs from your travels by following three basic rules:

1. Choose your art & frames carefully
It's fine to take an eclectic approach, but make sure there is some common thread flowing through your collection, whether it's colour, materials or subject matter. Jess's collection is tied together by the colour palette of  beige and black with blue/green highlights in many of the works.

2.  Balance the layout 
Lay the arrangement out on the floor, starting with the largest piece and working your way out. If you're a beginner, keep the spaces between the works roughly consistent. If you're feeling adventurous, play around with varying these spaces and add interest with letters, numbers or other shapely objects.

3. Avoid the willy nilly approach
Create a paper template for each artwork and Blu Tack or tape your arrangement to the wall to make sure it relates well to the existing furniture & lighting. Don't take the plunge with hooks, hammers etc until you're completely happy.
