Transform an open wall into a living gallery of your family’s best memories or some random art photos you like. For graphic consistency, choose a collection of frames with a similar shape and finish. To contrast all the horizontal and vertical lines, add a few unexpected design elements in the form of your wall art. A mix of black and white and color photography adds even more visual interest. Start by laying out all of the frames and décor pieces on the floor. Trace each one on kraft paper and cut out the shapes. Arrange and tape the pieces to the wall with blue painter’s tape, so as not to damage your wall. It’s easiest to start with the largest frame and work down to the smallest. Snap photos of a few variations until you find the right composition. Once you’re happy with the arrangement, mark the edges of each element and a hole for where the nail will go. Remove the kraft paper and hang each piece in its place. At the end, choose a sofa, credenza or other piece of furniture to anchor the gallery wall.
