3 Fresh + Fun Ways to Decorate Your Gallery Wall
Yeah, yeah — gallery walls have been “the thing” for a while now, but that doesn’t mean they’ve become any easier to pull together. Actually, they might have become even more complicated now that there are rules for what to hang with what and what frames are a no-go. If you’re still trying to create the perfect gallery that’s a little more you, we’re here to help. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to pull together a gallery wall that really speaks to you and makes a stylish statement in your space. Scroll down to see how we’d style a gallery wall for a boho-chic space, a minimalist abode and the preppy home.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC GALLERY WALL
The best gallery walls look like they’ve been collected over time, and the boho-chic style is *all* about that well-traveled vibe. Pick pieces you absolutely can’t live without and try to find pieces that complement each other, but aren’t too matchy-matchy. If you stick to a similar color palette, you can throw anything up on the walls, from a set of 3D arrows to that vintage painting you picked up at a garage sale.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST GALLERY WALL
If giant brushstrokes and bold typography are what make you tick, you might be more suited for a minimalist gallery wall. Pick up patterns and styles that appeal to you, but keep it all fairly monochromatic for a modern and pared-down look. Try to stick with a consistent frame style or color to create a cohesive (and totally professional-looking) wall of art.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY GALLERY WALL
Go all out with the cheery accents and bold animal prints for a gallery wall that’s totally prep-perfect. To bring a burst of summer color onto your wall, just add a hot pink taxidermy deer, brush-tastic floral paintings and some rad 3D pieces. If you really want to make your signature style known, set the tone with a glittery exclamation mark and a few gilded Xs and Os or a typography print.
