How To: Hang A Gallery/Home Wall

This seems to be a never-ending struggle for me and, I'm sure, many others. I always have a bunch of photographs, sketches, paintings, etc. I want to hang on a wall but how do I do it in a cohesive, uncluttered way? Thankfully The Glitter Guide is here to help! Love their suggestions here and below.

"We love the idea of creating a gallery wall in the home, whether it be in a living room, bedroom, or even an office space. We turned to interior designer Muffie Faith, whose store was featured on Glitter Guide earlier this week, for some expert tips on hanging a collection of frames!

Pay Attention to Size: If I’m doing a mix of sizes, I start with the largest piece first and work out. One thing that people always seem to do is put too much space between photographs and sketches. Think of it as a puzzle, but keep in mind that larger, bolder pieces need “breathing room” to emphasize the dramatic effect created by the art. Frames need to be similar — not necessarily in texture, but in color. You wouldn’t necessarily mix solid golds and silvers, but some pieces may have tiny flecks of each that allow you to make a bridge between both hues.
Practice First: For a large group or gallery, it’s often best to start by practicing your layout on the floor before you begin to mess with the walls. Don’t try to be exact or you’ll drive yourself nuts! In many cases, a tape measure will be your best friend to achieve consistency.
Change it Up: As the mood strikes to change your artwork, remember: putty fills a hole in the wall. Don't be afraid to make a mistake!"
