What Houzz contributors are saying:
Determine your style. Love lithographs? Fancy foxes? A gallery wall is your opportunity to style your home to reflect your passions and interests. Galleries can be tied together by theme, frame color, style or image palette. Tip: In a busy room with lots of patterns and textures, the key is to stick to a single hue, perhaps adding small splashes of color into the mix.
Pennington wanted her husband to be surrounded by his favorite things. “The room is very masculine and reflective of him and his interests,” she says of the new man cave. One of the biggest ways she brought in her husband’s style was with his art and rock ’n’ roll book collections. “I love to put a gallery wall in almost all of my projects,” Pennington says. Some notable pieces include a poster signed by members of The Who; a concert poster that includes the band Mosher played with in high school, the Very Nice Plants; an original Wes Lang piece she was given as a gift; and an Alexander Calder print she and the couple’s sons gave Mosher for Father’s Day. “There’s no magic or mathematics to arranging art,” Pennington says. For arranging a gallery wall, she advises using a mix of sizes and frames, and vertical and horizontal pieces. “The most important thing is to leave room for creativity and experimentation,” she says. Mosher regularly adds new pieces and switches things around.A Gallery Wall for Every Personality
