How to create gallery walls

Maybe you this look  and have been too overwhelmed on how to go from image to framed art or photos.  We created a step by step guide that will leave you with the best looking gallery walls in town. 

Or maybe you are feeling like us…  missing friends, family &  traveling. For the time being this is the best way to spend time with those things we miss most, bring back those memories without spending a dime, and keep your loved ones (and yourself) safe. 

I like to mix fun travel pics with wall art and family images. Throw some bas relief sculptures or masks if you feel like getting really crazy. The more you mix it up the more curated it feels to you.

How do you do it? Like this:

Step 1: 

Figure out what you want your wall to look like. Do you want straight, clean lines? Do you want a little organized chaos? Color? Black and white? You can utilize this app to see what your idea may look like! Salon style, gallery style or whatever your heart desires Click here to try ARTPLACER    

Step 2: 

Determine the size and style of the frames you want to use. You can mix them up, or go for all vintage or all modern – whatever gives it your own personal style! Place your photos in a floating frame, or add a mat to make it feel more like a piece of art. You can do it yourself (Target and Michael’s are great places for frames), or have this company do all the heavy lifting: Use this coupon to try Framebridge $15 off your order  http://fbuy.me/v/jen_1925

Step 3: 

Choose the photos that make you happiest & send them to get printed in the sizes you plan out. These babies ship directly to your front door.  https://www.nationsphotolab.com/allprints.aspx

Taking children’s art to museum level

Our own client Melissa wanted to honor her son’s love for drawing. We let Andrew (see below mini artist age 5) choose his three favorite pieces he created in art class, brought them to FedEx to  blow them up and had them printed on art archival paper, matted and framed in 24 x 36 wood frames.  Now he’s the Picasso of his own room!
