Step 1: Choose Your Art Prints

The first step in creating a gallery accent wall is selecting the perfect art prints. Look for pieces that resonate with your personal style and complement the aesthetic of your home.

Whether you prefer bold abstract designs, serene landscapes, or vibrant floral motifs, there are so many options available to suit every taste. You should also consider opting for a mix of sizes and styles to add visual interest to your gallery wall. Think patterns, metallic accents, textures even to add an exciting mix to your stand out accent wall.

Step 2: Plan Your Layout

Before you start hanging your art prints, take some time to plan the layout of your gallery wall. Consider factors such as the size and shape of your wall, the placement of furniture, and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve.

You can experiment with different arrangements by laying the prints out on the floor or using masking tape to outline their positions on the wall. Aim for a balanced composition with an even distribution of colors, shapes, and textures.

Once you've found the perfect arrangement, gather your materials, including frames or mounting hardware, a level, measuring tape, and a hammer.

Step 3: Hang Your Art Prints

Once you've finalized your layout, it's time to hang your art prints. Measure and mark the placement of each print on the wall to ensure accuracy. Use a level to ensure that your prints are straight and evenly spaced.

If you're using nails, gently hammer them into the wall at the marked points. Alternatively, adhesive strips offer a damage-free option for renters or those who prefer not to use nails.

Starting from the center and working outward, begin hanging your art prints according to your layout. Use your measuring tape to ensure equal spacing between each print, and double-check with the level to ensure they're straight.


Step 4: Add Personal Touches

With your gallery accent wall, don't be afraid to add personal touches to make it truly unique. You can incorporate other decorative elements such as mirrors, shelves, wall candle holders, 3D pieces, hanging plants, or decorative accents to enhance the visual impact.


Step 5: Step Back and Enjoy

Once all your prints are hung, step back and admire your handiwork! Your gallery accent wall is now ready to impress guests and serve as a reflection of your style and creativity. Take a moment to appreciate how the curated collection of art transforms your space into a gallery-worthy masterpiece.


In conclusion, creating a gallery accent wall with original art prints by artists is a fantastic way to elevate your home décor while supporting emerging and rising talents .Follow the tips and steps outlined in this guide, and soon you'll have a visually stunning display that reflects your unique style and values. Happy decorating and be sure to grab yourself a print or two during my BOGO art print sale.
