Gallery Wall

I know, I know, I can't believe it either. I finally got the gallery wall done I've been yakking about for a couple of years now.   The family room looks much more complete with something on that wall.  I'm thinking we can add to the sides and keep taking over the whole wall with pictures (kind of like a fungus - only prettier).

Here's what we hung on the wall:

-- two photos I took, one of baskets of seeds and grains at a market in Bangladesh and the lower one of the interior of Rouen Cathedral in Normandy, France

-- a photo I took of the cliffs at Étretat in Normandy, France

-- a photo of a half-timbered house in Rouen, France

-- a painting of Ritchie Falls that I did this past summer.

-- an art print taken by my friend Kat Warren from Low Tide High Style (by the way, do you want to know the most recent photo of Kat's that I'm obsessed with - check out this blog post and go down to the last photo.  Gorgeous, right?)

-- and finally two paint-by-numbers I found at a thrift store last year.

There you have it - a tour of our gallery wall. I think I'm going to change the waterfall picture when I paint new ones that I like so we have a rotating display.  I just glued a hook on the back and hung the canvas up which will make it easy to change it with new paintings.

 And here is what that poor wall looked like in all its nakedness before the gallery wall.

Have you jumped on the gallery wall bandwagon?

  1. Looks great! I really like the gold frame you included. Gallery walls are so stylish these days.

  2. Looks great, and you can really see what a difference it has made to the room by looking at the 'before' pic. I have a gallery wall in progress on our stairs.

  3. Yes I adore gallery walls. I have one going up my staircase of family photos. The thing I love about yours is that it is a perfect reflection of you and your interests. It's personal. A stranger could walk in your house, look at this room and know your style immediately. I think the way this room has come together is amazing...and on a budget too!

  4. It looks great! Your falls painting is a lovely piece. Yes I do like gallery walls and finally rearranged our living room wall. I think I took just about as long to fix it.

  5. Looks great. I love gallery walls. I did have one but then it came down when the fireplace went in its place. I have been trying to figure out where to do one ever since.

  6. i actually came over to say how much i love all the blue graphic pillows, but now you've got me wanting to go to france!

  7. I love your gallery wall. Great choices, and your photography and waterfall painting are wonderful! My dining room is our art gallery because it has the most wall space. It's forever changing as I sell paintings, too. There are a couple, though, that I won't sell.
