To help you picture some of the possibilities here are a few of our favorite gallery wall styles to get your creative juices flowing. 


One and Done

Leave it to Emily Shuman from Cupcakes and Cashmere to make a gallery wall look effortless and fabulous. By sticking to one frame style she created a uniform look, and ensured the focus stayed on the content of the frame - her family! Plus, the clean white gallery frame will blend beautifully as her style evolves. 

Want to get the look? Try this: Pick 6-8 of your favorite family photos and frame at a variety of sizes in one frame style.

If the all white look leaves you wanting just a little something more look on further than this gallery wall from Ana Fritsch. By keeping the majority of the pieces in our white or black gallery frame styles these ladies are able to keep the overall look clean. The pops of gold add interest and a nod at tradition without taking away from the modern aesthetic. (Not into gold? You can also recreate the same look in silver with our Buckhead and Newport frame styles.)

Want to get the look? Try this. Choose 5-6 of your favorite photos frame a 2-3 in a clean gallery frame style (like Irvine Slim or Mercer Slim) and the remaining photos in an assortment of metallic frames (for gold accents use Mandalay, Richmond, and Concord, or for silver accents use Newport and Buckhead).

All in the Family

Another foolproof way to create a stunning gallery wall is to stick to one type of style. Think about the profile of the frame and the colors you're using. Stick to all clean frames (like Mercer Slim, Irvine Slim, Marin, and Sonoma) or all one color (like Rach Parcell's gold gallery wall) to keep your arrangement looking cohesive. Another beautiful option? All wood frames. After you've established that guideline you can play with our preview tool to mix and match until you find something you love.

Want to get the look? Try this: Pick 8-10 of your favorite family photos and frame at a variety of sizes with one frame profile or color in mind.
