I love to hang a statement wall of favorite photos, artwork and kids' artwork and think that a well-styled gallery wall is such a great accent in any sized home. Our tiny apartment in NYC has a great little gallery wall that makes me smile every time we enter our home or enjoy a meal at the dinner table.
The major trick with assembling a custom gallery wall is to start with a larger object in the center and work your way out from the center point, to maintain a general pattern of shapes and sizes, and to frame in similar frames (I used an assortment of Ikea Frames that we had collected over the years to create ours!). I find that sometimes people get caught up in the measuring and can over-think it too much. Imperfect totally works for a gallery wall!!
Here's a round-up of some of my favorite gallery walls for inspiration.
