A Gathering of Gallery Walls











I know, I know.  I JUST said I wouldn’t be doing as many decorating posts and would focus on the spiritual… blah, blah, blah.  I can’t help myself.

I helped my friend do a gorgeous gallery wall in her baby girl’s nursery, and now I have gallery walls on the brain.  I will be doing one soon in my front room and have been accumulating my favorites from Pinterest.  I just had to share.

I will also share the gallery wall I did with my friend when I can get over there to take some photos!

Here are my favorites!  Just click on the image to visit the site of origin.

I love this design from Design Sponge.  I have always been drawn to maps and love how the rest of the gallery wall centers around the large map.  Also, that couch and coffee table are making me want to ditch my current couch and coffee table!

Curbly has tons of photos of wall-to-wall gallery walls.  Just click on the photo above to see more.  While I love this so much (especially with all of the white), I don’t think I have the artistic sensibilities to pull it off.  What do you think?

Gallery wall
Real Simple teaches us how to arrange artwork on this site.  I really like the idea of a gallery wall corner like this one.  I have a corner between my kitchen and staircase that has been bare since we moved in.  I’m considering something like this for that area.

I think this is my favorite of all, featured on Emily Henderson’s site.  I love everything about it.  I am always drawn to design that features black and white with pops of color.  This is so beautiful and makes me want a royal blue velvet couch immediately.

A Beautiful Mess is one of my favorite blogs, and when I saw this post about installing a gallery wall, I knew I had hit the jackpot.  I had already been thinking about painting my walls grey and amazingly had bought a lime green couch for my entry room.  I will use all of these gallery walls for inspiration, but this will be the one I use most.


What do you think?  Do you like any of these?  Which is your favorite?  Have you installed a gallery wall in your house?  Did you have a plan or just wing it?

I will keep you posted on the progress of my gallery wall.  Hopefully it happens this year.  If not, maybe it can be a New Year’s project!

    I’m funny when it comes to art walls. I like them if all the frames are the same or at least the same shade but I really don’t like them if all different. It just looks like the owner has a bunch of mismatched framed items they didn’t know what to do with and did t want to reframe so jumbled them up on the wall. Haha.

    I saw a decorating show many years ago about a similar subject and the decorator said one could group pictures of anything even if they don’t all have the same theme if you’ve framed them in similar frames that all match within the grouping. I’ve always remembered that and like if the frames match no matter the size or the content.

    So my favorite is the grouping above the lime green couch and the maps :)

    I like the Curbly wall. It reminds me of my very sweet, special sister who I miss desparately! As far as artistic sensiblities go, when in doubt, call my aforementioned sister, LOL. I can relate, though. I’m not brave enough to try to pull something like that off myself.

      I ask for Marty’s help and opinion so often. There’s no-one else in my life who has an eye like her and I trust her judgement. She has encouraged me to go with what I like, which has been helpful. I’m trying to determine what I like and not always rely on someone else’s opinion. But it doesn’t always come naturally to me!
