The default go-to option for walls set to display art is white, and with good reason.
White doesn’t compete with the prints but, depending on the pieces you plan to curate, white doesn’t always enhance. Before you reach for the pot of white matte emulsion, take a look at these inspiring gallery walls that are unafraid of colour to make art pop!
Home Arty Home loves the refreshing blue of interior designer Caitlin Wilson‘s scheme in the image above, that expertly complements the gold, white, black and pink of the art selection.

Most framed art prints have white mount borders which help to add depth and helps the artwork to stand out against a coloured wall. A point worth mentioning is that most of the images here have surrounded the coloured gallery wall with white, from white fireplaces and cornicing, to furniture and accessories.
Would you swap your white walls for brightly-coloured?
Or do you already have a non-white gallery wall?
