A Gallery Space






Gallery walls are such a great way to display art, photos, mirrors, frames, etc.  We did one in our living room of all of our friends and family photos.  I ordered all the prints in black and white, and did all black frames.  When displaying photos I like to do them in black and white.  It really gives even the simplest photo an artistic feel.

Most of the walls in our house are taken up by large artwork.  Because we live in California, earthquake country, it's not good to hang big art over your bed.  So I decided to do a gallery wall over our bed of lots of little small pieces.  So to get inspired I started researching gallery walls and these were some of my favorites.  Another great thing about gallery walls is you don't have to spend a lot of money on expensive art.  You can just find small eclectic pieces, even at the local flea market, and start to piece together something interesting and unique.
Another great tip is the 1 cent frame sale at Aaron Brothers.  I believe it happens twice a year.  If you're going to do a wall with a bunch of frames it can save you a lot of money if you wait for the penny sale.  The great thing about a gallery wall is you really can't go wrong.  Start collecting an eclectic mix of pieces and before you know it you'll have something special.
