This is why a gallery wall should be your next interior venture

Serving as an invitation to explore the perceptions, inner thoughts, moods and obsessions of the homeowner who put them there, a gallery wall is the ultimate form of self-expression. The maker should employ a menagerie of paintings, prints, photographs and illustrations that, when arranged in close proximity to one another, will start conversations, induce emotions and create influence. This multi-faceted focal point is best expressed when the arranger plays with shape, scale, texture and dimension to create a veritable visual feast.

This is how to recreate the look at home…
