Step 2: Mix It Up, Just Like Your Playlist
Variety is the spice of life, darling. Mix up sizes, shapes, and styles. A big bold statement piece alongside some smaller treasures? That's the secret sauce. Think of it as curating the playlist of your wall's life.
Step 3: Plan Your Layout, 'Cause We're All About That Structure

Sure, spontaneity is great, but a little planning never hurts. Lay your pieces out on the floor first to find that perfect arrangement. We're not saying you need a blueprint, but hey, even Michelangelo sketched before he painted.
Step 4: Frame It Right, Frame It Tight
Frames are like the accessories of the art world – they can make or break a look. Whether you go for sleek and modern or vintage and ornate, make sure those frames are on point. Your art deserves a killer outfit too.
Step 5: Create a Statement Wall, Because Why Blend In?
Don't be shy, darling. Choose one wall to make a bold statement. It's like the Beyoncé of your gallery – demands attention and steals the show. Make it the focal point that leaves everyone in awe.
Step 6: Light It Up, Let Your Gallery Shine Bright
Illuminate your pieces like they're on stage. Play with different lighting sources to create drama, and watch your gallery come to life.
Now go, slay that gallery game, Queen! Your walls will thank you, and so will we.
