The best thing about this design of gallery wall is that you can incorporate small pieces of furniture or other permanent wall hangings, like this key hook, and combine interesting objects, keepsakes, and pictures for textured perfection.

If you’re seeking more concrete texture, however, there’s this fabulous layered option .

Too many pictures and too little space? This busy gallery is actually a very chic display, especially if you keep your pictures a classy black and white.

You don’t have to have pictures or paintings to create a gallery wall – collect your extra fabric scraps or find some festive cloth napkins, and frame and hang them, to create a fabric gallery wall and add vivid color and beautiful patterns to any room.

6. Art Gallery

If you’re an artist, have an artist in the family, or even if you have a pile of pictures your prodigious child brought home from school, create an art gallery, using strategic placement and a barrage of bright colors.

7. Empty Frames
