Your Guide to Styling Walls

Inspiration for gallery walls & creating your own personal look with framing

The way you fill empty walls in your home, apartment or office makes a big impact on how you experience each space.

With online framing, you can preserve and beautifully display special artwork, photos and other items that make you feel good.

There are countless creative ways to display these pieces. We'll break down a few of our favorites that we hope will inspire you.


The Grid Pattern

If you have an even number of similarly sized pieces or framed photos, the grid pattern is pretty fail-proof.

It's a clean design with little guesswork when it comes to executing the layout, and can transform a bare wall into something much more interesting.

It's also a great way to showcase pieces by the same artist or with similar subject matter. Displaying your framed artwork or photos in a series of columns and rows will create a bigger visual impact, and works especially well for smaller or medium-sized frames.

Statement Styling

When you love a piece of art enough to acquire a large version of it, you have the opportunity to make it a focal point in your home. Use a statement piece to tie a room together by hanging oversized framed art by itself on the wall, centered above a piece of furniture like your bed or couch.

Statement art is a great way to add character to a place you are renting, or anywhere you can’t make more permanent design changes.

The Line Up

This layout is perfect if you have a little less space to work with.

You can go vertical or horizontal, with an even or odd number of frames. They don't even have to be the same size, just line them all by the top or bottom edge of the frame, or center them to create a stack.

We like this particular style for adding creative flair to homes with minimal wall space, or if a full gallery wall is a bit daunting of a task.

Lean It

Displaying framed artwork on a shelf, entry table or even your floor is a fun way to dress up your space without any hammering or nails.

With this technique you also get to curate the space around the frame, so you can add other unique touches like succulents, ceramics or memorabilia to show off your personal style.

There are really no rules when it comes to this one! Arrange a cluster of frames together, putting the larger frames in back for a more layered look.
