How to style your gallery wall as a Scandinavian

Hello! Today I bring you a topic that will surely interest you, since it is a type of decoration that helps to enhance any room and specially to give it personality. I am talking about the famous: Gallery Wall. If you want to tell a story or transmit your personality through your decoration, then this post is for you ♥

Building a Gallery Wall does not consist of exact rules or parameters to achieve a good result. What you should do is let yourself go. I like to think that they are like a collage or mood board. Then, thinking in this way, these would be the tips that I would recommend you follow so that you can be encouraged and start assembling your Scandinavian-style Gallery wall.

Sizes and forms

There is no a perfect order to place the pictures or decorative items, so have fun mixing different frame formats and contrasting sharp shapes with rounded or curved ones.

Choose a color palette that you want to use to help you have a starting point. This should not be something that stops you from choosing a decorative item or picture, but it will help you to overwhelm you less with so many ideas and options that can go through your head. Has not it happened to you that you get so excited that you have a thousand ideas and you do not know what to choose? It happens to me all the time 😀

If you decide to have a color accent, you can apply it in 1 or 2 paintings and / or decorative items.

And finally, the most important thing: LET YOURSELF GO. Do not think something can go wrong and stop trying, a gallery wall should be spontaneous, so remember that there are no rules or parameters ... It only requires your creativity!

    I love those images!! I live in Guatemala so most wall hangings are all typical art and it’s amazingly colourful! This was great!!

    I’m obsessed with gallery walls. I especially love all of the different unique frames. This is definitely something I could see myself doing in my future home! I would love to do a black & white wall of family members portraits!
