Today we ask Fay Stephenson from Henry, Fred & Felicity, a few questions about her super cool gallery wall. She chose our oversize Drip Drop Rainbow (Ice lolly) print as one of her pics.
Emily: What are your tips for preparing the space beforehand for a gallery wall?
FAY: Preparation is key. Ensure the wall you have chosen is clean and clear. Take into account any surrounding décor, and note the lighting at all times of the day. Be aware of the space and how you envisage your wall looking after creating. Pinterest is a great source of gallery walls to get inspiration from, find your style!
Emily: What did you look for when selecting and deciding on prints and pics for your wall?
FAY: I had one main print which I knew I wanted to base my wall around. The colours were pretty specific so I know I had to keep everything else within these confines. I decided to add a couple of larger prints in a similar colourway, to tie in then keep all other pics, prints and all frames in monochrome tones. I also ensured I had lots of different styles of frames (really effective especially if all frames in same shade or tonal with each other) as well as different sizes and orientation to create a good mix. The key is to create something that looks like they have just evolved over time without much thought and a little bit of (planned) chaos; rather than something which is extremely uniform and obviously staged.
