For a base of the art gallery walls, one can use a “virgin” white wall as well as dark or intense colors base. But is important that the frames of the decoration are contrasting with the base – black, golden, silver or patina frames are quite trendy right now. Dynamic juxtaposition of sizes, shapes, and places is intentionally searched within the borders of the assembly – it brings dynamic tension and specific character for your art gallery wall.

There are few pointers you can use when assembling your trendy gallery wall: first – is important that the content is meaningful to you. It is true that the presence of such a decor element, that combines your favorite prints and art pieces can instantly elevate the style and value of any space, but it also presents you and your passions and interests, so it’s important for you to enjoy it – you are the one that will have to look at it every day.

It is good that there are no limits or special requirements for the sizes, colors, contents or shapes of the different elements of such a gallery composition. You can choose pieces that have a common thread – a certain color for example or an ideological theme. But you don’t have to limit yourself – hurray!

Actually, dynamics and variety are good pointers for the assembly of such a wall: use a different frame for each piece – if you wish, no restrictions in colors or sizes, let your imagination fly. The only practical advice you can follow when designing your art gallery wall is that you can start by hanging the largest piece first. Position it slightly off-center – so it doesn’t steal the show, and then arrange the rest of the pieces in a dynamic fashion around it. Lately, many designers use in the decor composition an outside elements and objects that give additional style and character to the dining room wall art. So don’t limit yourself to framed pictures 3D elements can also be included.

Dining Rooms With Stone Walls

Another material that has its strong presence in the trendy decor composition is the stone – but is more commonly meet in the design of vacation houses and villas. Traditionally used as an outside cladding or architectural construct the stone infiltrates the homes in the 50-ts and 60-ts when architects start to use as a cladding of dining rooms or around the fireplaces in the living premises.

And although this material has more rustic and rough character, its natural qualities and organic presence can compete with the usage of materials such as wood and marble. Its thermo-regulating qualities, natural appearance and great variation in colors, shapes, and textures makes it a wonderful choice for introducing a character and unique charm into a wide range of casual dining room ideas. In the examples we have selected for you – from the luxurious shine in the first one to the rough construct in the last one – the stone demonstrates its timeless and classy character.

So, a stone wall can be perfect for your dining room assembly: it is functional, it does not age, its stable, it has a reach tradition in its usage and as we mention – it does not restrict your imagination when it comes to colors: from red to black, from warm to neutral textures. So check out those inspires stone spaces … and maybe you will find what you’re looking for.

Dining Rooms with Brick Walls

If not stone, why not brick? The ceramic material also had gone under development and re-imagination of usage: from the simple constructive material it becomes and aesthetic presence into the modern dining room decoration and trendy new outlooks. The brick construct goes very well in combination with metal framings, large glass vitrines, industrial lighting solutions and contemporary vibes.

Almost a century old tradition of decorating the walls of dining rooms is experiencing not only a strong comeback but an artistic development: from a conglomerate of similar objects on shelves and walls, it becomes a piece of contemporary art, provoking experimentation and creativity.

The plate wall decors can be very entertaining and in a great variety of expressions – in the selection, we choose to present to you, the first example creates an illusion of framing, an assembly of plates – bringing it closer to painting.

In the second there is no framing just a small collage of different sizes and patterns.

The next one is intriguing with its contrast of simple whites on a black base. And speaking of contrast – a dynamic tension can be created even if there is no juxtaposition – the white plates on white wall prove it. The possibilities are unlimited – just enjoy.

The best part of decorating your dining room wall with plates is that you don’t need a specialist, fashionable designer or a craftsman to do it. All you need is the appropriate selection that will represent your vision: color, theme, motif or memorabilia of your travels, or just patterns and art that you enjoy. The assembly is also guided by your sense of style and artistry – the round shape of the plates is optional but also very undemanding (you can group them in any possible way without worrying if they are even). And bonus – creating a collection of plates that will become a decorative element in your home can be quite fun.
