We're big fans of showcasing art through gallery walls. They're a great way to display a collection of prints and original artwork and look especially great when they're designed with an overarching theme. Of course, since we're fans of modern styling with clean, simple lines and typography, we loved this gallery wall designed by A Beautiful Mess blog. It's modern yet fun and even ties in some washi tape for pops of color.
For styling tips and how to create a gallery wall, look no further than gallery wall expert, HGTV host and designer extraordinaire, Emily Henderson. She's a pro at layering and can mix prints like nobody's business. Below we've rounded up some of our favorite gallery walls designed by Emily. They're a mix of abstract and clean/modern. Don't miss her guide to creating the perfect gallery wall.

While we know the state of California has everything someone could want—snow, mountains, desert, surf, all in a day's travel—the island that Orange & Park and I call home, Coronado, has a surreal beauty unto itself. Whether it's a sunrise at the Shores, golden hour at Outlet, or the extended stay of the Hurricane Marie south swell this past summer, we can't help but feel lucky. Here's a few images I've snapped to capture it.
