A photo wall collage using canvas photo prints, family wall art, photos on wood and mixing it up with a whole lot of wall decor ideas, can create a stunning wall gallery.
Depending on your home or apartment, you can create a photo wall over your bed, in the entry, a hallway, kitchen, bathroom, stairwell, boring corner or even on a console, if you can’t bear holes in the wall.
The first place to start is by collecting photographs and artwork that you would like to group together. This might takes days or weeks to assemble.
Your next focus is to bring all your items together; so together they look like a unified piece of wall decor.
You can do this by using the same photo frame sizes, using the same photo frames, using the same color photo frames or printing your photos so they look similar; black and white, vintage, rustic etc.
Going over a bed or sofa.. these tips should help
1. your piece or pieces should be at least two-thirds of the length of your bed or sofa.
2. two or three pieces of art – so they work like one piece. They have the same color palette and are the same size.
3. make sure you have color balance – if you have blue in one corner, try to get some blue in the opposite corner for some balance.
4. use lots of different sizes of art; some vertical or horizontal and even tiny pieces up towards the ceiling, so you fill the entire wall.

    Hi - I love the top wood picture pattern. At first I thought this was canvas. Can you tell me the sizes of the photos in the pattern of the black and white photos? Thank you

      just found this, and was wondering the exact same thing, for that exact color....you would think that if they are going to do articles they would at least tell you the colors so you can replicate it...

    Do you know the paint color of the gray wall with warm wooden frames, black and white photos, and the antique skis and snowshoes. I'm going to do a similar wall with frames/photos, and that wall color is exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you!

    the rooms shown here are some of the most beautiful and well thought out I have ever seen. The room with the blue gray walls and ski equipment is perfection. Kudos to the decorator.
