Gallery Wall

I love gallery walls. In our apartment I had a great one in the living room over the couch. We moved into our house in May and I have been planning to get one up for months now. A few weeks ago we finally got around to it. Because we live with another couple I wanted this gallery wall, which is in our living room, to be a mixture of pictures from all of us. I also wanted a mix of old and new, art, photography and family pictures. I think it turned out really well.

My favorite picture is the oval frame in the center. It is a photograph taken in 1945 of my grandmother and her sister. My grandmother, on the right, is 9 years old. Growing up this photo, still in its original frame, was in my grandmother's house and everyone always said that it looked like me. My Mom gave this to me after she died a couple of years ago. My other grandmother is on the far right. This is her graduation picture. And this particular copy, given to me by my grandfather, is signed be her to him. It is such a classic beautiful picture I just love it.

What are your thoughts on gallery walls? Do you have one?


  1. Looks beautiful! I have a "semi" gallery wall in our hallway. I plan to add to it in the future. :)

  2. I was totally just admiring this at your house last night. I love it.

  3. The top of our piano is our version. I have pictures of my grandparents in their respective courting days/early marriage in the collection so I love seeing the pictures of your grandmothers!
