If you don’t already have a gallery wall in your home, chances are you’ll soon be creating one. They have been all the rage the last few years in home decorating and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere soon. They are striking, creative, and create lots of visual interest on a wall. That being said, sometimes they can get a little redundant: frame, after frame, after frame. To create more interest on your gallery wall, try hanging things other than your standard picture frame. There are lots of other great options of decor to hang on your wall and just because it doesn’t “match” the other frames, doesn’t matter. Gallery walls don’t have to match, they just have to look like a cohesive unit. So, if you want to spice things up on your gallery wall, try hanging some of these alternative items to keep things interesting and modern.
If you’re struggling with including unique and creative items on your gallery wall of frames, mirrors are a a great alternative. Mirrors can still have frames and they can still resemble the shape of your other picture frames. If you want to be more creative, opt for a mirror in a fun shape, like a starburst. It’ll create lots of visual interest on your wall and give it more of that creative look you’re going for.
Clocks don’t have to be boring and plain anymore. Now a days there are so many great options for wall clocks and they make great decorative wall pieces to include in a gallery wall. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your home. It’s also a wonderful functional piece of art because you can use it to tell time! You can’t get much better than function and design incorporated in one piece!
