As the seasons change, and as we change and grow, our environment needs to reflect that inner and out transformation. Creating a stunning gallery wall is one of the easiest ways to do a room refresh. Your home speaks of your desires, dreams and intentions so make an impact with your creative message through art. Through creating a perfectly curated gallery wall, I am thrilled to introduce you to my latest series of art work called DREAM BIG. Dream Big represents the creative journey towards accomplishing a risky, bold goal.
For a complete guide for placement, measuring and arranging, please refer to my post How to Create a Gallery Wall 101. In addition to these basic tips that work for any gallery wall arrangement, I will give you a quick guide to creating a curated gallery wall; one that reflects the specific theme and style of my new series DREAM BIG.
CURATE YOUR PERFECT GALLERY WALL
The gallery wall that I am featuring today follows the theme, Dream Big and therefore every piece of art is specific to that theme. Start by asking yourself, “what message do I want to convey with my presentation?” Do you want to be intentional or random? Also, how much area do I want to cover? What is my budget? What items do I already possess that I could use?
Style & Sizing
First, envision your style. Do you like a mix of sizes or like to keep every frame the same size? How about the finish for frames? Are your tastes more modern or traditional? Once you answer these questions you can start to envision the arrangement of you art. As you can see from the picture, the style is more traditional with a mix of sizes and finishes. When it comes to choosing your prints to fill the frames, it is important to find some standard sized art (5 x 7 and 8 x 10). Also, are there different sizes available with the same print?
Anchor Point – Introducing the Theme
Sometimes the piece of art that ties all of the other pieces together is a specific message and sometimes it is just one piece that stands out and is a favorite. For this gallery wall arrangement, I went with the theme of my latest collection titled, Dream Big. Dream Big encapsulates going after my one creative goal; the journey towards dreaming bigger than ever before. This was taking a risk of daring to envisioning a life of freedom and created purpose; living out my dream of becoming a licensed surface pattern designer.
The Robin Print, titled RELEASE, shown here in a 5 x 7 size, reflects my decision to live above fear, to release it’s hold on me, to give myself permission to be free. I have to choose to live in the moment, celebrate the success of my journey and embrace the endless possibilities of my creative gifting to the world. To help you do the same, I wrote Create and Accomplish Your Dream Goal This Year.
Titled TRUST, this Robin’s Eggs Nest in an 8 x 10 size speaks of the waiting amidst the journey; the contemplation and wrestling before you take flight. Our journey is held and nurtured in a protective nest, until we release of our gift to the world. Life can be beautiful in the waiting. Trust the wait, embrace the journey my friend.
If you want your art to have a specific thematic impact, mix it with typographical prints as well. This careful planning reminds the brain of the messages that your individual art pieces are conveying. This gallery wall is in a very intentional space that is my office, therefore I want my space to speak to my creative purpose.
Everything worth achieving takes time, so trust the wait and embrace the journey. Your time will come, you will achieve your goal and it won’t be a moment too soon. Grab this digital print available in 5 sizes HERE.
As a creative, you have times where you are productive as well as times of rest. Rest fuels the body so that you can continue to put your best work into the world. This BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF Typographical Print (pictured here as a 16″ x 20″ size) is your reminder to be gentle and patient with yourself as nothing blooms all year.
For the same impact but on a smaller scale, try a floating shelf utilizing the same tips as above. Remind yourself of your potential and your goals through this Dream Big print also available in 5 convenient sizes.

Titled BLOOM, this botanical Peony and Bumblebee print is bold and fearless. Fresh and vibrant, this peony is unapologetic and full of life. This peony dares you to dream, challenge your fears and you will reach your creative goal. This Peony Print looks equally as handsome in a smaller scale gallery wall. The theme remains the same but without the typographical prints.
