1 Gallery Wall
A stark bare wall can be filled with a couple of vibrant accents:
· small pictures in simple frames for a living room;
· photo collage in a bedroom or study;
· panel full of photos and pictures to create zones in a studio.
You can place images in a random order or form a heart or helices. You can also use a full coverage technique putting photos, posters and pictures one after another without spaces. To make accents look better, the base should be plain and one-colored. A gallery wall looks really creative in any design style.
