Gallery Wall Inspo

Happy Friday! If you’ve got an empty wall somewhere in your house and no weekend plans, this post is especially for you. Gallery walls are such an easy way to cover a lot of wall space and make a big impact in a room. The ways that you can arrange your art & wall decor are limitless- each gallery wall is different depending on the space it needs to fill. Whether you’re wanting to make this a weekend project, or just get inspired for future projects, keep on reading for some of our favorite gallery wall installs!

These collections work in any room in your house. They’re seen often as a focal point in living rooms:

And are a great option for an empty stair wall!

Although gallery walls are often seen in a random assortment, they don’t always have to be! Depending on the space you’re trying to fill, a layout with more order to it may be ideal. We love the grid gallery walls in these rooms- they fit the space so nicely and give such a clean aesthetic:

Again, it’s important to design for your space. Sometimes it’s best to just use 4-5 items so as to not overcrowd.

Gallery walls aren’t just for photos people! Add sconces, decorative items, vintage odds & ends from past trips, and even mirrors for a collected, visually appealing wall!

Picture ledges are great for adding dimension to your curation:

Think outside of the box when it comes to picture placement! They don’t always have to be centered over a particular object 😉

How adorable is this gallery wall made up of kid art?!

Pro Tip: If you’re struggling to find the best placement for your photos/items, the best thing to do before committing to nails is to cut out outlines to scale of what you’re trying to hang. This allows for customization without the mess of having to pull out nails. Some companies, like West Elm, even include these cutouts with their picture frames! Use cardboard paper or even newspaper, and hang with painter’s tape so it’s easy to move around until you’ve found your perfect layout.

Loving Lately: Exposed Wood Cabinetry
Comments Off on Loving Lately: Exposed Wood Cabinetry

 

 

 

Hey hey! We hope February has been good to you so far! Lately we’ve been crushing on exposed wood cabinetry in the kitchen and bath. While paint is always a great option for cabinetry, whether you’re trying to make them stand out with a bold hue, or have them blend into the background by going with a more neutral option, the natural warmth that having a bit of exposed wood provides for a room is unmatched. We’ve been seeing this trend pop up more and more lately and we’re totally on board with it! So naturally, we’ve sifted through tons of images to find our favorite examples to show off to you; take a look!

 

In the Kitchen:

Loving the harmony in this one- the tiled floor provides a nice barrier for the wood cabinetry and surrounding hardwood flooring.

In the Bathroom:

Lots of natural hues mesh well in this gorgeous space- we’re especially loving the contrast between the blonde wood vanity and black flooring!

Patterned tiled floors are most always a good idea…especially in a small bathroom where the pattern won’t be overwhelming! Great use of contrast again in the whites, blacks, and natural woods below.
