How Do You Choose Your Art Gallery Layout?

The photo in Grace's post yesterday about gold frames got us thinking about at-home art galleries and how people decide on their design layout. We've already showcased how to hang different style galleries but we wanted to know what sparks your creative design style?

We've personally created galleries in both a symmetrical design and a controlled random layout. In the symmetrical instance, we wanted to keep our wall clean and calm and wanted the matching frames would create an anchor. For the controlled random gallery, we enjoyed the mix-n-match style since the wall was completely blank and we needed an interesting look in that part of the room. While we love our galleries, we always enjoy seeing how other people create galleries in their homes. How do you pick your design? Do you go with the more popular styles of a symmetrical layout, off-center set up or a random design?
