Trendy Tuesday: Gallery Walls

Ever end up with smaller pieces of art and photographs, and not know exactly how to display them? Try a gallery wall, which if done right, has as much impact as a large piece of art.  I remember going to my grandma’s house, and she had this massive display of carefully arranged family photos lining both walls of her hallway.  It changed over the years as all of us grew older, got married and had children. A wall of family photos is not my personal style, but working a few into a wall display of other art and mementos makes me pretty happy, and is a great way to personalize your decor. 

 

If you can hang it, you can put it in a gallery grouping.  Hats, mirrors, photos, art, textiles, and found objects all are great additions to your wall layout.  I've even framed a huge leaf I found. This is a perfect way to display small pieces of original art that you might collect in your travels or that might be what your budget affords.
