We brought you the new Hunting for George print range and custom frames recently, and the accompanying imagery provided plenty of gallery wall inspiration (see below). And while hanging a gallery wall is not the easiest thing to master, when you do, the results can be amazing. It’s also a fabulous, affordable alternative to larger prints or pieces of art and a great way to show off your own unique curation of personal photographs and prints.
Following on from the success of Hunting for George’s ‘How to fold a fitted sheet’ tutorial, the Melbourne brand has followed up with one that runs you through the basics of creating a perfect print wall.
Step one: Composition
Lay your prints on the ground to find a composition that you like. Take a photo as a guide.
Step two: Curate
Avoid choosing prints that are all the same – mix it up and spread the love. A mix of photos, abstract art and type prints usually works well.
Step three: Anchor
Hang your largest print first – it will function as your anchor. You should hang this at eye level.
Step four: Spacing
Your prints should be approximately eight centimetres apart. There’s no need to use a ruler as imperfect gaps will give your print wall character.
Step five: Frames
Choose different frame colours and materials to give your print wall a fun, eclectic look. Use two to three different types. Add more prints to fill your wall and finish with an odd number.
