The ever evolving gallery wall. It’s one of our favorite elements of a house and is often one of the most poignant ways to get to know someone a little better. Through the art that they have lovingly and thoughtfully collected. Mixed in with mementos and photographs. It’s a window into a homeowners soul and as we are working on crafting our very own, we thought that we’d pay homage to one of our favorite gallery walls of all times.
I think that really making a gallery wall feel cohesive and finished can be quite challenging if you’ve never crafted one before. You have to ditch all notions of symetry and perfection and really look at the art. And the furniture surrounding it. And find a layout that allows each piece to sparkle and sets the space off in a way that feels right. Some of the prettiest gallery walls are often quite lopsided or unbalanced but because of the specific pieces chosen, the way the space is laid out, the placement of the art on the wall…it all just falls into place. Here are a few pieces that we are currently coveting…granted, one of them sold for like $13 million but hey…a girl can dream, right?
