Picture Frame Gallery Photo Wall Ideas for Beginners

Gallery Wall Boho Display

A photo wall adds personality, colour and style into any room. Picture wall collages are becoming more popular to display travel pictures, family pictures, nature pictures, or even inspirational quotes.

The first and most important step when creating a gallery wall photo frame display is planning the layout before hanging frames. Pinterest is a great way to start getting inspiration. We have created a Frame Wall Display board in our Pinterest account to give you some ideas.

A couple of things you should consider are colour harmony, artwork size and separation between each artwork.

Picture Frame Gallery Wall Ideas:

1. The Rule of Three

Interestingly, a trio of framed artworks can look more striking and natural than a pair of framed pieces. When only using two or three picture frames, try to use the same style, colour and tone of picture frame. Larger sized photo frames can be ideal for this. However they don't have to be the same size. Just try to keep the arrangement of the three picture frames in your gallery wall collage display symmetrical for more beautiful and aesthetic results.

2. A Neat Grid

For this type of picture wall look, we recommend keeping the same size and arranging the picture frames symmetrically and close together to create a bigger geometrical shape such as square or rectangle. The goal is that all the framed pieces in the picture wall collage can read as one large piece of artwork.

3. Synchronised Bottom Line

For this type of photo wall arrangement, create interest by aligning all photo frames along the bottom and building an alternative layout from there. Even though the overall photo wall collage may not be symmetrical, the layout will still have balance.

4. An Asymmetrical Layout

Use a clustered collection of different photo frames in a variety of sizes for this type of wall collage display. When arranging them, avoid pairing identical sizes together. Try keep larger frames in the middle and smaller frames at the edges. You can also use different tones and colours of photo frames. For example, you can even mix natural timber frames with metal photo frames and still maintain an aesthetically pleasing look, as seen in the photo wall gallery display example below.
