I recently did a gallery wall of framed artwork in my bedroom. I love it. I was actually very impressed with myself. I had thought about it and talked about it for about six months before I finally made myself do it. I was sort of nervous because I didn’t want to put a million holes in my walls and I wasn’t exactly sure how it would end up looking. I’ve hung art/pictures hundreds of times, but not in a large grouping of frames. It was comforting to know that it was MY room and not a client’s.
I really love gallery walls. I think they add a lot of character to a room. There are so many different directions to go when it comes to gallery walls. Frames can be exactly the same size and color, or random sizes and finishes, and everything in between. I prefer for the sizes and finishes to be different. I like for the frames to be hung randomly and not aligned with each other.

A hallway is a GREAT place to hang a lot of artwork.

Nate Berkus — notice how gorgeous the art looks against those lacquered blue walls!!! LOVE.
And last but not least…
(or maybe least…) my room! What do you think? All of the framed artwork/prints/paintings were either given to me or cost next to nothing. The orange and blue matted pastels (upper left hand corner and lower right hand corner) were actually drawings that my dad did in like Kindergarten! I found them already framed in my parents attic. When you’re on a budget you have to be resourceful, people!
And yes, that is my diploma in the mix… I liked the frame :)
