Creating an art gallery on a wall in your home is much easier than you may think. There are a few steps to follow in order to get just the right amount of diversity. Whether you'll be using San Francisco wall art or pieces you've created yourself, here are some things to keep in mind while crafting your gallery.
Wall galleries are best when they show off personal pieces as well as your favorite purchases. Before you go out and buy an entire wall's worth of art, look around your home and see if there's anything you already own that you can use. You should especially go through any forgotten closets or memory boxes for old personal items you want to display.
Many people take pictures while on vacation or at a special event and then forget about them for weeks, months or even years. Go through any digital photos you have and see if there's something especially unique you can use in your gallery. If you're already using some purchased San Francisco wall art, maybe you can pair it with vacation pictures you took last time you were in the bay area.
Once you think you have all your pieces gathered, check to see if there are any overused themes. It's one thing to include two or three floral items in coordinating colors and quite another to cover your wall in rose after rose after rose. Sometimes it's OK to clash just a little, so lay out all your items and see if you like how they look together. Move them around to test other configurations before deciding to remove certain items.
You can put together your own wall art gallery with just a few items you already own and some San Francisco wall art bought online. Use some of our great templates to create plates and metal prints to complete your artistic display.
