Art Collected


The gallery wall. It's kind of the ultimate signifier of a home owner's style. A way of saying "I live here, this is so me". We see them all the time on pinterest. But what about in your friends' homes? Maybe a little harder to come by. Because, for one thing, an art collection takes time (and some money) to curate. And two, a good gallery wall is friggin' hard to pull off. But worth it when you do.


Gallery walls add dimension and texture to a room. They allow you to showcase your style through many pieces as opposed to just one. Just be sure that what you're collecting and showcasing is representative of you. And have fun with it. Seriously. The stuffy art collections always come off as, well, stuffy.




Betchya can't find a favorite! In honor of Memorial Day take 25% off your purchase in my art shop through Monday using the code "TAKE25".

I so agree. They take time and aren't easy to do well. But I love every single piece you chose here.

We have 2 gallery walls. One of family photos spanning many generations and another one of all kinds of black white including etchings, prints and photos. It's fun to do!

I love a good gallery wall! And, these are great inspiration Photos! Couldn't agree more with you… It can be so expensive… But so fun. It's all about the hunt for the perfect find!

Can't wait to show my husband your pictures so we can get motivated to work (argue)on the pictures we need to hang! I hate that he has an opinion but I work with it! I have similar ideas in my head but need to get it out!
