It's no secret we love a good gallery wall! Whether you're a pro at them or are wanting to try it for the first time, here are a few of our go-to tips when creating a gallery wall! From just a few prints to a ton, we've got something for every space of the home. Check it out...

1. Clusters of Three. Styling prints in groups of threes is a great rule of thumb to start with if you're looking to create a small gallery wall or working with limited space. Styling in clusters of threes helps maintains balance while also creating a fun organic shape. It's also super easy to add on to if you decide you'd like to continue the gallery wall later.

2. A Diamond Gallery Wall. This shape is perfect for styling a gallery wall over a credenza or couch. It works well when you have a mix of artwork sizes and want them to create movement (instead of a perfect grid). Create the shape by placing the largest print in the middle and then add smaller ones to the sides.

3. A Corner Gallery Wall. This is one of my favorite ways to fill a corner! When styling a corner gallery wall, we typically stick to the diamond shape as well. The key is not to cluster all the same sizes together. We staggered the sizes so that the two largest prints were in the middle at slightly different heights. Then, we filled the surrounding space with smaller prints. (Pro tip: When mixing in different print mediums, be sure to mix those up as well so all the canvas prints or photographs aren't next to each other!)

4. Floor to Ceiling. When you want to go big, this is a really fun way to make a statement! When using a grid layout like this, use four frames that are all the same size so that when paired together they match the width of the larger print. Or, you can create something more organic with different size frames.
