I've been noticing on Pinterest a lot of tutorials on how to group multiple pictures onto a gallery wall have been cropping up. Some of them are brilliant, and some of them look a hot mess. J and I have a gallery wall in our dining area that I feel has the gallery look, without too much going on. Our wall is pictured below in all its glory.
I appreciate simplicity and symmetry so I really love our layout. If we had a taller wall in the dining area I would love to have mirrored the pattern on top of the poster as well. Anyways, here's how to get the look... To keep it simple we used the same old barnwood frames from Hobby Lobby on all the pictures. Secondly all of the pictures except for the focal poster are black and white. The largest photo/ focal point is a 16x20, the top two photos are 8x10, the next two are 5x7, and the last one/ the point is a 5x7 (7x5) as well. The tops of 16x20 and the 8x10s are all even and they are spaced 10.5" apart. The outside edges of the 5x7s are even with the inside edge of the 8x10s. Finally the 7x5 is centered on the 16x20 and the top of the 7x5 is even with the bottom of the 5x7s. There ya go, that's it! :)
