125: Gallery Walls!

by MJ Gourd


Day 125 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!

A gallery wall is a flexible, mutable decorative process and creates the perfect opportunity to make a personal statement at home. As organic as the arrangement may appear, it actually requires time, preparation, and patience. What composes your gallery wall is not only personal, but varied. Include anything from expensive art to flea markets paintings, kids’ sketches to vintage photos to create a perfectly eclectic arrangement. Whether big, small or somewhere in between, a gallery with your favorite prints and art pieces can instantly elevate the style of any space.

In this cozy room, family photos printed in black-and-white lends an authentic and personal touch that compliments the neutral color palette.

This gallery wall is perfectly playful and smart. Even the aqua wall in this home office provides the perfect backdrop for an irreverent art collection

I love the variety of sizes and shapes used here, yet the wooden frames and pictures keep the cohesive.

This graphic art collection has a distinct feel of being thoughtfully collected over time. The bold black-and-white pieces match the pillow and rug, and pops of color add life to the room.

We have a mild obsession with maps over here at MJG Interiors so I had to include this cool, old world map for inspiration!
