Curated by Studio In
Studio In is a vibrant interior styling studio based in Gothenburg, Sweden. We teamed up with the founders Maja and Atta and asked them to curate a gallery wall and to share some of their invaluable tips for creating that flawless and beautiful gallery wall. They love a gallery wall with a lot of personality and guts, but there are some guidelines that they always keep in mind while creating it. They share three of their best tips for succeeding with your gallery wall.
1. COLOUR THEME
An easy way to succeed with your gallery wall is to put together motifs with a common theme. For example, pick out art with a repetitive colour or technique, for instance, black and white photo art.
2. MATCHING FRAMES
Choose uniform frames to avoid a messy result if you have many different types of motifs in colour and expression. Wooden frames will give a warm and soft look, while thin, black metal frames Will enhance a modern and minimalistic vibe.
The more colours and motifs, the more critical the frames' layout is. A tactic that never goes wrong is to Stick to a baseline and place the largest and darkest motifs at the bottom of the gallery wall. Play around with the layout of your frames and art on the floor before you go wild with hammers and nails. In this way, you will be more sure about the placing and matching.
