I'd like to put a picture collage here using varying size frames , but just not sure what size, pattern to use for this space. It's right by our front door, hallway to the kitchen. Thanks for your help. Basically 4 ft x 4 ft of usable space.

Love that gallery Bobbi P. To add a little more interest in galleries like this, I've used double matts on the pictures, one wide matt with a small (1/5") matt on the inside edge in a different color that coordinates with the colors in the pics. Subtle but with a touch of originality.

PH, thank you! I love it too. And I've also used the double matt idea, especially when the pic I want to display is too small for the space, and needs a bigger frame to give it interest.

The space is only 4 x 4 - do you think that is big enough to do a gallery like that?? I would like to use family pics.

4' is 48". If your frames are no more than 10" across you can do 4 pictures across and if the frames are no more than 14" high, you can do 3 down. Or you can turn them landscape and do 3 across and 4 down.
