Gallery Walls

I love photos. I love art. Especially when it’s framed.

Photos tell such an amazing story about a family and help us to remember good times and important occasions.

I’ve been thinking about putting together a gallery wall in my home for sometime now. The staircase and a section of the wall in the second floor hallway would be perfect.

With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some gallery walls that I am grooving on right now.

This staircase is jam packed with eye candy.

Love this dining room gallery

Another staircase with a collection of black and white photography

The dramatic blue of the high gloss walls in this living room is toned down by the wraparound gallery walls

This gallery wall draws the eye up and down via the unified and balanced frames

The creation of this hallway gallery wall was chronicled on Young House Love. The white frames unify the look.

A more modern look, this gallery wall pops out of built-in bookcases in this contemporary space.

A collection of snapshots on a bulletin board isn’t exactly your classic version of a gallery wall but the collage is a fun way to switch favourite pics in and out easily.

I am so excited to put together my own gallery wall but have had a life-long phobia of hammering holes in walls. I’ve had great success with the hole part but limited success with the patching up the hole once I make a change. 3M adhesive strips were invented for people like me.

What do you think about gallery walls? Do you have one in your home?

  1. Hi Sarah, I’m a fellow BYW student – I really like the green background of your site – it makes all the entries really stand out. And I, too, love the idea of photo collages but I am afraid of looking too cluttered. Somehow the “styled” pics always seem to have a more together look…
