Ahh the frame wall, will we ever tire of it? I (Cristina) certainly haven’t had enough of this look, and with so many creative variations I don’t think I ever will (did you see Claire’s great wall? How ’bout Camille’s?).  Curating and hanging a gallery wall in your own home can be a daunting task, so I’m loving this collection of coordinated prints that makes it a snap. I’m especially feeling the simplicity of the square grid which makes my least favorite chore – hanging picture frames – much more manageable. Keep reading to see how to create an easy gallery wall in your home!

Square frames in a 3 x 3 grid make a simple yet bold statement no matter what art you fill them with, making this the perfect gallery wall for beginners! Once the layout of the frames is squared away, we can get to the fun part: choosing the art! For this particular gallery wall, I’ve chosen pieces that coordinate with each other – all mini paintings by one of my Etsy favorites, Britt Bass. Another great way to find affordable art is to frame the pages of an art or photography book to ensure the color palette, size and subject matter are the same. You’ll get much more enjoyment out of having them framed on your wall than in a closed book, don’t you agree?

    I love this look, I did it behind my bed a few years ago as as head board. Only to realize in an earthquake, it probably would be better to do this somewhere more safe lol.

    Love this for inspiration. I always struggle with how to group and hang pictures together in my apartment.
