Contain and Display Small Objects

For a playful touch, incorporate small, cherished objects such as toys or action figures. To keep them from getting lost or looking like clutter, arrange them in groupings inside of easy-to-hang containers or small, floating shelves.

Choose High-Impact Lighting

Although the gallery wall is intended to be the focus of the entry, it's equally important to choose the proper lighting. Ornate chandeliers or hefty, solid pendant lights may block the collection or detract from it, resulting in a cluttered look. Instead, stick with sculptural pendants or chandeliers with graphic shapes which will stand out from the gallery wall instead of getting lost in it or competing with the arranged pieces.
