To achieve this look hang your pictures within a large square or rectangle.

This look is further unified by using the same black frame for all the images:

Join us for the annual start of summer Sidewalk Sale on Bank Street! EVERYTHING in the store will be on sale, including ready to hang art, prints and posters of all kinds, and all of our wonderful art cards!

To keep a grouping of frames easy on the eye, create a bottom line. This works particularly well if you are hanging the pictures above a couch, dresser or bed.

This arrangement over a desk looks interesting and well put together, notice the straight line across the bottom :

Even an eclectic mix of frames can look neat and tidy:

Remember, when hanging a grouping of frames a level is your best friend!

Frame Arrangement Pt. 4: KEEP IT SQUARE

Hanging frames in a gallery style creates a very clean and cohesive look. The frames and images are normally all the same size and colour and hung in a grid pattern.

A great idea for a frame-headboard using the grid layout:

Use framed prints to fill up blank space on the wall behind a bed, an arrangement that doubles as a headboard. To create this gridlike look, use square black frames and hang them close together, leaving about 2-3 inches between the frame edges. (via Better Homes and Gardens)

A beautiful way to display family photos:

Finally, don’t be afraid to think outside the box by hanging frames below or above eye level:

To keep your frames hanging straight on the wall try using 2 picture hangers per frame instead of 1.

Frame Arrangement Pt. 4: KEEP IT SQUARE

Here is an interesting take on arranging a group of frames, lining frames up against a horizontal midline provides a nice clean line for a neat and orderly grouping.

A great idea for a hallway:

To achieve this orderly look, the secret is to divide and conquer: Mark a horizontal midline on the wall, and hang all pictures above or below it. The line can be delineated with a strip of painters’ tape and then removed once the pictures are in place. To unify the group, choose a single color for all frames and, if displaying photographs, stick with either all black-and-white or all color shots. (via Martha Stewart)

This hanging method also looks amazing when you use a variety of different frame styles and colours for a more eclectic look:

Using various frames in the same colour creates a more cohesive look:

Don’t forget to plan ahead:

Cutting templates of your frames out of kraft paper or newspaper allows you to set up your grouping and visualize how the arrangement will look on the wall before you start making holes.
