When creating your own home gallery, the first step is to choose your art, and we’ve selected 22 of our favourites for you to explore. When mixing different works, you must consider the scale – not only if they fit your designated wall space, but how they will fit together. It’s one big jigsaw puzzle.

It's also worth considering whether you want a uniform look, with matching frames, or would like each piece to have its own personality. For extra peace of mind, do a dry run – lay the works on the floor to play with your composition. If in doubt, check our tips on how to create a stylish gallery wall, but always keep in mind that the most important thing is to be creative and have fun.
