5 Simple Ways to Update Your Gallery Wall



1. Update or Swap Your Pictures:

Your photo gallery wall is a reflection of your life - it should be ever-changing, just like you! A photo gallery wall is a great way to display your favorite memories, and it's easy to update as your friendships and families change. Nest Effects makes it easy to update your photo gallery wall. To replace an outdated photo, simply remove the old photo and stick a new one in its place. You can also add new photos to your gallery wall to keep expanding it.  This way, you can always keep your photo gallery wall fresh and up-to-date, without having to start from scratch. And because Nest Effects photo gallery walls are fully customizable, you can design your wall to suit your own personal style.



2. Re-Arrange Your Layout:

A photo gallery wall is a great way to add a personal touch to your home décor. But what do you do when you need to make a change? With Nest effects, you can simply update your gallery wall by re-arranging your photos. If you're moving addresses, re-designing a space or re-arranging furniture, your photos can be easily re-arranged to fit any new configuration. Check out how any of our gallery walls can be re-arranged into new gallery wall layouts!



3. Choose a Theme:

Trying to decide which photos to display in your new photo gallery wall? Narrow down your selection by choosing a common theme. Stick to themes like portraits, vacations, or common environments like nature, farm, mountains, or beach. Themes like these will tie your gallery wall together no matter which photos you choose to display! And if you're still having trouble making a decision, remember that you can always change up your photo gallery wall later on. So don't stress too much about it and just have fun!



4. Swap Photos Seasonally:

If you love to match the design of your home with seasons, Nest Effects makes it super simple to create seasonal photo gallery walls. Consider displaying family photos of yearly visits to the pumpkin patch, or Christmas tree shopping. You may also consider swapping out vacation memories that fit with the seasons as well. Display your favorite memories from a beach vacation during the summer and swap them out for a memorable ski trip in the winter! It's a great way to add a personal touch to your home décor that celebrates your favorite moments and changes with the seasons.



5. Choose a Color Pallet:

An easy way to update your gallery wall is to stick with a specific color pallet to tie the space together. There a few ways to choose a color scheme to fit your home. Think about complementary colors, black and white galleries and contrasting colors. Do you want calming or neutral colors like blues, greens and tans? Or go for a more vibrant look that features a variety of bright colors. Maybe even choose a color scheme that reflects your favorite color!

Another popular choice is to go black and white. A black and white photo gallery wall is a great way to simplify your photo selection process. When hanging your black and white photos, mix up the sizes and shapes to create interest, and use photos with similar subjects like landscapes or portraits. 

But if you're looking for your gallery wall to stand out and be a real focal point in your space, then you should consider choosing contrasting colors. By selecting photos that either contrast with each other or with the overall design and colors of your space, you can create a gallery wall that is both stylish and personal.
