Gallery walls are a fantastic way to spruce up the living room and add your own personal style. You can also easily rotate the design, the actual components, and color scheme without having to worry about making any drastic changes. Most people hang up artwork on the gallery walls, which is always nice. However, you don’t have to limit yourself just to art. There are plenty of other items you can hang up in order to keep your living room wall looking very interesting.
The best piece of advice to anyone who is just starting out with creating a gallery wall is to take your time. Think about what you really want to hang up, and try to think outside the box in order to make things truly unique and your own.
Thrift stores are an absolute treasure trove when it comes to home decor, as you’re bound to find interesting pieces that will help you make your home really you and will break away from the cookie cutter home decor magazine look. Items like this bow will add personality to the room. This can work with costume jewelry as well.
You can choose anything that’s woven to add in some interesting texture to an otherwise flat area. use a Bolga fan as pictured above or anything else like rattan baskets or anything else.
There’s a reason why these are a classic decor item. They add interest with their triangular shape, and the felt adds texture to the otherwise uniformity of glass and frames. You can find some on Etsy, try to find one from your school or your favorite sports team. There are plenty of vintage ones that look really cool up on the wall.
So these don’t actually have to be accessories made for frames, but rather can just be items that can be added in front of or behind a frame. You can add plenty of different flat objects like postcards, bookmarks, photo booth strips, or more. Get as creative as possible and let your style shine. Pretty much any flat item can be added to a frame to create an interesting look.
This is a great way to incorporate sentimental items from your childhood, gifts from friends, or ornaments that you’re not really sure what to do with otherwise. Hang up ornaments with ribbon to add even more color. Smaller objects are great to add to a sea of frames, and they break up the monotony.
