Today I want to share with you some ideas on displaying art, photos, prints and other types of pictures in your home.
I’m going to focus on what is often dubbed a Gallery Wall.
And oh my goodness I’ve ANOTHER giveaway for you at the end of the post too!
A gallery wall is when pictures are grouped together to give a focus point in a room. The grouping can have a theme but often doesnt, its a way of showing off your favourite places, holidays, people and things that make you smile.
Here’s an example, on a rather grand scale, of a themed gallery wall inside the Manchester branch of The Cosy Club (photo by me). Vintage portraits and landscapes with a few bits of taxidermy thrown in for good measure.
The trick is with a gallery wall is to curate with confidence.
If you love it, it will work. I have a stack of pictures ready to hang but there’s some live cables in the wall that need sorting first. So here’s some more gallery wall inspiration…
I must admit I’m more the eclectic layout kind of girl…. I like to play around with the pictures until something fits, most of mine are different sizes anyway, and different frames. You might like to incorporate three dimensional items, antlers are great for this.

If you’d like to create a gallery wall at home but want to add to your collection first, then I might just have the very thing you need.
You can win £40 of art from Place In Print.
These prints are stylish and have a little bit of a sixties feel about them. Some have a clever and humorous way of describing places. I love this Catford print, (I’ve never been to Catford though!) cats are so elegant. This would be perfect for a monochrome themed gallery wall.If you are a Londoner, or a huge fan of the capital there is plenty of visual pun style prints to choose from.
