Here at Block we LOVE a gallery wall. They are a great way to express creativity within the home.
A gallery wall allows you to add interest to forgotten spaces or to lift a feature wall.
Even the smallest picture has a place on a gallery wall, nestled in amongst the display. They can be ever-evolving, growing with you and your art collection.
We discovered the wall above on Instagram. The stairway gallery wall belongs to Emma from @flawsomehome . Emma's wall is celebration of colour, presented on a bold grey backdrop. We love the mix of typographic prints with illustrations and photography. When we sent a Hello Coat Rack to her we were so pleased it took pride of place on one of our favourite gallery walls! Check out Emma's Instagram feed this weekend for an exclusive Block giveaway: @flawsomehome.
@_Lisa_Dawson_ 's serene staircase is another beautiful example of a hallway gallery wall. Using a white back drop, Lisa has selected subdued frame colours for her bold prints. The slightly wider spacing between each print allows the artwork to breathe and invites the viewer to take time to enjoy each piece.
With each gallery wall we find we discover an amazing set of prints by brilliant artists. The POP print often takes pride of place and is designed and made by British duo Quirk and Rescue. We first met Ms. Pink and Mr. Black at a trade show and were of course blown away by their bright and bold artwork.
Here is a snap of their own gallery wall staircase and check out the amazing pattern they have added to the stairs! The neon yellow radiator has become a part of the gallery, an artwork in its own right.You can find their prints to buy online at www.quirkandrescue.com or follow in Instagram at @quirkandrescue.
Here's the POP print in Lisa Dawson's beautiful home. As you can see the modern print works in both a punk setting and a mid-century modern interior. A gallery wall will encourage you to find interesting prints that you love in any shape and size.The picture top right is by SiFabricate. The artist uses shoelaces and eyelets to make his work. It is gloriously nostalgic. You can find Simon's pieces online to buy at: www.sifabricate.com
The Blah Blah Blah print above is also in @flawsomehome Emma's living room (and shown in Quirk and Rescue's hallway gallery wall). It is by one of our favourite artists Gayle Mansfield. Gayle's typographic, minimal prints make a statement on a gallery wall as well as adding an integral pop of colour. Emma's pictures above complement her colour scheme within the living area.Buy Gayle's prints online at: www.gaylemansfield.co.uk
