Aren’t gallery walls the best? They are such a great way to make use of empty wall space that needs filling but doesn’t merit one standalone, over-sized piece due to other elements in the space. I also feel that they provide an inspiring visual snapshot of the owner’s taste and inspirations. It’s fascinating to see how different people group together their chosen pieces, and to observe how they have married colour, pattern and artistic approaches to tell their own story through art.

In my office I created a gallery wall using a mixture of my own photographic prints and of several artists I admire – I can’t wait to share it with you all in the first Bright.Bazaar book next spring! I was reminded of the process of creating my own gallery wall earlier this week when my talented photographer friend, Sivan Askayo wrote to me to introduce Artfully Walls. All I can say is that I wish I had known about this website when I created the gallery wall in my office – this really is a fantastic online resource for helping you decide how to create your own gallery wall. The website is a curated art market place featuring a collection of beautifully styled gallery walls that showcase a hand-picked portfolio of art. Artfully Walls offers a really wide range of art options including museum quality fine-art prints that are made with archival inks on premium paper and canvas. There’s also an amazing iPhone app that used augmented reality technology to allow you to see how your chosen art from the site will look on your walls – pretty awesome, right? I’ve pulled together some of my favourite gallery walls I spotted over on Artfully Walls, along with three of my favourite pieces of art on the site that caught my eye. Do you have any gallery walls in your home? Do you have any advice/tips to share? I’d love to hear them. Have a fantastic weekend, friends.

  1. I need to share my gallery wall (in our den), and my tips. Nothing original as far as strategy really, but it turned out beautifully! Bon weekend!

  2. Can’t wait to see your Gallery Wall, not to mention Bright Bazaar Book and honored two of my photos caught your eye. 🙂

  3. What a fantastic idea to try out a wall online or via app before purchasing. I’m sold on the idea. Off to explore now. I’ve still got quite a few bare walls, but then again, also quite a few prints left in their scroll containers. Happy weekend x

  4. Ah yes, this helps me get my butt in gear and get the gallery wall that I have been meaning to do, done! I love that pile of crates against that dreamy blue brick wall.

  5. Oh I love this! I just wrote a blog post for The Interiors Addict about Choosing, Buying & Displaying Art and would have included it if I had known about it before! Thanks for the intro Will! Amy x

  6. Oh The Trays in Buenos Aires is superb! Gorgeous colours. I usually always have a gallery wall and tend to mix the styles which works for me. M xx

  7. EYE SPY my artwork! What a small world! I am working with Artfully Walls and it’s so nice to see it pop up here! LOVE it!!! 🙂
