2. Gallery Wall
Why this works: Balance, repetition, and texture. The photo arrangement is balanced but not symmetrical, which lends a relaxed feel. The repetition of photo frames creates a strong focal point (notice how your eye travels there first?). And the texture of the rough fireplace wall, weathered furniture, and peeling baseboard paint is just sooo yummy.
Why this works: Color and scale. The muted palette of grey, taupe, and cream is so chic, especially in these proportions. Also: THAT ART. Hello giant mixed media piece, you totally make this shot.
