We came back to the office this year to discover Domino’s winter issue, and as always, it was chalk full of design inspiration. Months ago they called on us to offer some guidance when creating a gallery wall with their Style Editor, Elaina Sullivan. We are so thrilled to be included in this issue and wanted to share Robyn’s advice below:
1. First, lay everything you might want to consider out on the floor before hanging on the wall. You may decide to purchase additional photographs or artwork if the collection needs a bit more “body.”
2. If you’re having difficulty visualizing the spacing, mask out the arrangement with painter’s tape. You can then see if you’ll have enough height to adequately fill the space and make the wall “important” looking. Try to include a mix of vertical and horizontal works to fully occupy the wall.
3. For the sake of ease, start by hanging on the right side and move to the left. Use picture-hanging hardware (such as the OOK brand) or, alternatively, two nails for each piece, each hammered one third of the way into the wall. BTW: Download a level app on your phone to ensure your pieces won’t hang askew.
