A Gallery Wall

A gallery wall truly covers your walls in your own style. In our last house we had a big space above our couch that I finally decided to put up all white frames and do a gallery of images. I loved it! What is important to remember is your images tell a story about who you are, your interests, where you have traveled or lived. We are currently working on a gallery wall going up our stairs. Hopefully I can get a balance of family pictures, art and quotes on the wall. I want my girls to look at the art and pictures on our walls and feel inspired and loved. Here are some images I have collected that are helping me with the direction I want to go.

I like the different colored mats in this one.
Wouldn't this be fun to frame some colorful bathing suits? Especially adorable would be showcasing little kid's classic suits.
     This is what our stairwell looked like right before we moved in. The plan is to bring the pictures all the way to the tippy top. What do you think? Do you have a gallery wall in your home? Did you stick with different frames or all the same? Come back soon to see what we have done with this space.


  1. I like this post, because I've been trying to decide where and what pictures to put up. I've got a beautiful floor to vaulted ceiling, and I haven't put up anything in fear of misplacement, or decide I don't like it once it's up... Do I put up only black and white pictures, or only color, or can I combine the two and put up both, and will it look good with both? Decisions...

  2. I think a mix of black and white and color photos are great. However, I wouldn't stop there. Think about a meaningful quote and frame that or frame maps of places you've visited or lived. There are so many ways you can do this. You could also decide to have all the same frames and mat or vary it with a couple of different colored frames and mats. Take a picture of it when you're done. I would love to see it.
