Do you love DIY collage walls but never know how to find your own style to create a photo wall that matches your personality? Have no fear, Picta is here with this foolproof how-to guide to transform that boring white wall into a masterpiece!

You can use two types of prints to create an aesthetic photo wall :

  • Inspirational photos from Pinterest/the web
  • Your own photography

Sometimes Pinterest photos look nice on the platform but when you print them, they don’t always match the aesthetic you’re trying to create. #NoWorries … we’ve got you covered! Simply download our FREE collage wall kit right here:

Love your photos and want them to match the vibe you’re planning? We have tips for you! VSCO is an amazing app with different kinds of filters that you can add on your photo to create a matching aesthetic on all your pics.

We love gallery walls! Gallery or photo walls let our inner artsy photo-lover shine, with maximum effect in minimal space. They are also the perfect way to show who we are and what we love in our room.

Be unconventional … and your photo possibilities are endless. Mix photographs, drawings, art, postcards… eclectic is the new minimalistic!

5 Steps to get started

  1. Keep to a single color theme: no more than 3 colors
  2. Only choose photos that you really like. You’re putting your personality on the wall, so to speak, so double-check each of them.
  3. Decide if you want to go symmetrical or asymmetrical. It all depends on the mood you are trying to create.
  4. Display all your photos on the floor and sort and plan them there (it’s easier than on a ladder, trust us!)
  5. Use painter’s tape or sticky tack to put them on the wall (just in case you didn’t listen tip #2 and have second thoughts 😉 or if you just feel like changing the photos later on)
