When hear that oh-so-familiar design term, "gallery wall" what do we think of? Probably something along the lines of a wall covered completely in framed art. Some big some small, and many different types of frames featured from antique gold with vintage scroll to sleek white and modern. These mashups of mixed printed media tend to be super eclectic and not always a favorite for everyone.
Here are seven new ways to take on hanging a series of art in a way that's a little more refined and a little more contemporary-- we're calling it the Modern Gallery Wall.
1. SLEEK AND MODERN
Clear frames with contemporary black frames and absolutely no matting make for and ultra-modern display.
2. PLAYFUL PRINTS
Graphic prints in warm colors perfectly arranged around a media setup create a soft and subtle statement.
3. OUT OF THE BOX
An art trend we're loving - frames mounted on built-ins create depth and layers to a room
4. LUXE LAYERS
Arranging a gallery directly on top of paneling instantly creates a luxurious feature wall.
5. THE COLLECTED GALLERY
Arrange a large group of photos or prints in a crisp and clean way by using the same size, frame, and mat. This is a great way to display Instagram photos or vacation memories while keeping the display tasteful and distractions minimal.
6. POP PALETTE
These pop art prints are bold and fun, but create a sophisticated collection with coordinating mats and their large format sizing.
