We all have hundreds of photos (and sometimes collections of prints) just sitting in our spare rooms or in our hard drives and if you’re anything like me you keep saying … ‘ Someday I must print out those photos and put them on the wall’ . Well I’ve been having too many of those moments lately and although I have a small gallery wall on our stairwell … I really need to just go do it. So here is some inspirational pics I’d like to share that just might make you go do it too!
I am always a little wary of putting too much inspirational living quotes on walls as no-one wants to go into someone’s house and be told in every room how they should live … but I think this really works and those chairs …
This Gallery wall is what I call ‘The Cool’ gallery wall … when your dining room actually does look like an Art Gallery
This species I call ‘The Higgle’ gallery wall … it appears to be just randomly hung in all shapes and sizes but it is very well thought out and planned … I like it …feels homey and memory-ish.
Now this is the ‘Look where I’ve been’ gallery wall … but it is beautiful and cohesive and black and white … love
The ‘Kiddy’ gallery wall is always my favourite ( every house should have one ) … usually the art that gets the most compliments in our house is the Kiddy art!
And finally the ‘Cheat sheet’. Some people lay out all their frames on the floor to play around with plans … the next trick is to cut out the exact shape of each of your pics from your cereal boxes and tape them to the wall to really get the feel of your gallery wall before you put the hammer to the nail!
Hope you got some inspiration to help you go for it with your own gallery wall …do you prefer mix and match vintage style frames or Black and White photos in crisp white frames? feel free to leave a comment below to share your gallery wall dilemmas or phobias …
Ciao for now 🙂
