Gallery Walls

I love gallery walls: they're a place for you to showcase your favorite art, family photos, a mirror or two, or whatever else you love. I've been thinking a lot about having a gallery wall in my living room on an awkward wall above our loveseat. These pictures have provided me with some sweet inspiration and hopefully will do the same for you.

The next two rooms are a little too formal for my liking but I do love the symmetry and orderliness of the framed art. We just finished another gallery wall above our couch that is similar in form to these. Pictures to come!

Here are some more eclectic arrangements that I'm totally diggin'. I love different shaped and colored frames all grouped together.

I love ampersands. I can't wait to show you our DIY project that features this favorite symbol of mine.

And here's the wall that needs help in our living room. I feel like it needs a random arrangement of pretties. What's really annoying about this space is the placement of the temp controller. So I'm thinking of a creative way to hide that.



Stay tuned for a reveal soon!

  4. I've been thinking of adding a gallery of pictures too, just not sure where. Since you're going with a gallery wall, are you going to "frame" your thermostat? that would be cute (IMO).

  5. I love gallery walls. I have 2 already "finished" that I love. I love randomness so they are great for me. I have all the frames on the wall for the one in our bedroom but I have yet to order the pictures. For the temp controller, if it can be moved I am sure your hubby can do it. If it can't be moved then maybe a deep canvas or picture frame with a deep frame. Or you could use a little shelf like thing (can't think of the name) and prop the frame on top leaning against the wall, not nailed so it can be easliy accessed. Does that even make sense? lol!
