The thing about gallery walls... they typically take some planning. I've been perusing some saved photos for inspiration and found an a-ma-zing resource on flickr that may help if you're considering the idea. Here are a few highlights in Part 1 of 2: Mixing it up (Combining Various Frame Finishes). I think these are trickier than sticking with one style and frame color, but the payoff is incredible.

All the prints here are pretty simple, and the white matting keeps it light.

A couple of clocks and a small sunburst mirror are incorporated into this gallery wall of small prints and photos, while sleek white and black frames play beside ornate antique frames. (Pssst... You had me at turquoise.)

Anyone have experience creating gallery walls? Words of wisdom? Like the eclectic look of combining finishes, or prefer a sleeker presentation with one frame color?
