  1. Keep to a single color theme: no more than 3 colors
  2. Choose only photos you truly like. You're putting your personality on the wall, after all.
  3. Decide if you want symmetry or asymmetry. It depends on the mood you're aiming for.
  4. Sort and plan your photos on the floor, then display them on the wall.
  5. Use painter's tape or sticky tack to put them on the wall (just in case you change your mind later)
