Inspiration: Gallery Walls

The gallery wall has literally been around forever! I remember my mom framing each years new school picture on the wall featuring my other 4 siblings......in order by age, equally spaced in a perfect straight line. On one ocassion she got a little crazy and staggered them up the stairs.....this time the oldest of my brothers starting at the top down to the youngest brother. Each time there was always order......in spacing and style and always uniform in color.


Nowadays, there really isn't a 'perfect' way to create a gallery wall. There are no clear-cut-must-follow-rules. Different colored frames.....go ahead! A blend of quotes and photograpy.....absolutely! Maybe an initial or amperzand......fantastic! An empty frame......WHAT?!?

Master Bedroom Gallery Wall




I have always, in the 10+ years I've styled a home, had a gallery wall of some sort. In our previous home it was lovingly referred to as the 'Waite Wall of Fame.'

Here is our current 'wall of fame' in our playroom.......





Here are a few 'gallery walls' that have inspired me along the way:

I love all of the empty frames and combination of different metals and white/cream tones.

White frames and bright colors.

Really no rhyme or reason but a beautiful {and possibly sentimental} collection.......and room!

A few golden nuggets of inspiration I'll leave with you......


Make it a beautiful day!

  5. I love your gallery wall! It took me forever to do my gallery wall in my voice studio, because the cats kept laying on the pictures while I had them laid out on the floor to get the best arrangement. Anyhoo, thank you for sharing this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
