These days, it seems that a gallery wall is almost a requirement for good design. Each home tour we stumble upon or publish has one version of a gallery wall- big, small, colorful, monochrome… and we love them all! It takes a little fine tuning to make one work in your space, and a lot of creativity and charisma to make it look different from all the rest. One trick we wanted to share comes from our July 2014 issue (#EscapeWithRue), and is a quick way to add dimension to the wall and let your personality shine.
Artist Dana Mooney made her gallery wall three-dimensional by adding a gold wishbone near the base of the wall, and staggering a few prints along the floor. If you view the full wall, you’ll see a circular mirror and a large canvas print- further diversifying the otherwise flat space. We love the result!
