Gallery Wall Tip 4 from H.Prall & Co. "Don't be a square".

When you incorporate different shapes, you add dimension + you make it easier to fill in smaller spaces.

H.Prall and Co. Gallery Wall Tip #5- "Choose Your Colors".

Frames should be similar in color but can be different textures, styles, + shapes. The art you choose should pull in colors from the surrounding space.

H.Prall & Co. Gallery Wall Tip #6 - "Level as you go"

Every time you hammer to add another piece, the ones you've hung will move. Make sure to re-level one piece before you hang another one by it - don't go off of its current position for spacing, as it could be off.
