Soft sheer shades protect against sun's impact on a personalized wall gallery

Frames for a home wall gallery can be ornate or comtemporary, depending on the room's decor.

Rather than displaying the work of an artist, homeowners can create their own wall gallery of photos, art work and family memorabilia that can look just as professional.


A wall gallery can take on the decorating style of the room it's in, according to ivillage.com. A modern-style gallery should have artwork that is uniform, such as a collection of black-and-white photographs or contemporary illustrations by one artist.


For a more eclectic display, mix a wide range of styles and media. "Even if you’re going for an eclectic effect, try to keep most of the pieces in the same basic palette, adding one or two contrasting images to keep the display dynamic," the website advises.


Home decorators can be as creative as they choose. Postcards from their travels, family photos, beautiful images from calendars and magazines - all can be part of a personalized assortment of wall art.


To prevent the wall gallery from fading from exposure to sunlight, care should be taken in the choice of a window treatment for the room where the gallery is located. Soft sheer shades allow filtered light to enter a room, but also maintain visibility of outside views. They can provide an elegant look to complement a home gallery.
