Whether you're just beginning to carefully curate your favorite pieces of art, or you already have a gallery wall that rivals your local museum, we're here to offer up some tips to mix things up a bit. Art is subjective, and the way you arrange it can vary greatly. Take a look at our ideas below to see how you can mix things up.

Instead of evenly spacing out your art, why not hang each frame together as one giant statement? This open and airy stairway landing showcases it well, but any corner of your home or apartment is fair game. Keeping the art and frames in a monochromatic palette adds a sense of cohesion.

For an element of interest, try painting most (or all) of your frames the same color as your wall so they blend right into the background. Any color would work, but the darker the paint, the deeper the impact.

This artwork arrangement gives new meaning to the term "gallery wall." By placing one piece of art in the middle of the wall and leaning the rest on the floor underneath, you can display your favorite pieces in a completely unexpected manner.

Instead of selecting artwork with a particular theme in mind, why not let your choices inspire the entire room around you? This candy-colored room features art in just about every color of the rainbow, yet looks polished, not cheesy.

By choosing a clean, black-and-white color palette, this assortment of varying shapes looks sky-high. Thin frames, wide matting, and small photographs grouped together are a refreshing change of pace.

Mix up your idea of a gallery wall by simply placing two oversized frames next to each other. The visual impact is huge and draws your gaze upward. By staying within the same color group, these prints maximize space.
