I have a wall right next to our stairs that I have always wanted to turn into a gallery wall. But gallery walls intimate me.
There’s no fool-proof, specific way to design one, so I usually just stand like a deer in the headlights staring at my blank wall.
So I have been looking around Pinterest for some inspiration, and I found out these things…
1. I need to pick a color scheme for my gallery wall.
Do I want to have all black frames? White? Mix of colors?
Do I want my pictures to be all black and white, or color, or a mix of both?
Do I want to add items with pops of color to my gallery wall?
2. Do I want to hang items symmetrical or asymmetrical?
Sometimes I like the look of symmetrical gallery walls.
But let’s be honest. Pretty and organized and neat are not words I use when describing my house full of boys. :)
So I think my favorite are the asymmetrical ones.
I want my wall to be a hodge podge of special pictures and items that I love.
3. I need to decide how to hang them.
Or, you can cut a piece of paper the same size as the wall space you are covering, lay the items on the paper and trace it, then hang it on the wall. You can also mark where you need to nail in the wall.
Well, that’s what I have come up with so far. I am hoping to tackle our gallery wall next week.
If you have a great gallery wall at your home that you would like to share,
please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or you can snap a pic on your phone and upload it to my facebook page HERE.
I would love to share your gallery walls in a future post, and of course, I would LOVE the extra inspiration!
Have a blessed day, friends!
