picture gallery

We get so many requests from friends and clients for picture galleries. Picture walls are great because they work in different style homes and can be done in a relatively budget friendly way. People find them very daunting to start, but we have found some tricks of the trade to help make the process a bit more approachable.

Same frame size and shape with black and white photos. Very simple grid design. A good starter picture wall.


Mixing art and photos helps give this picture wall visual interest, yet the simple rectangular shape keeps it from looking too fussy. Overhead lighting gives it a bit of elegance in this casual, almost rustic space.


The soft palette and mixture of canvas and whimsical framed art dictate the playful shape of this picture wall.


So chic (and cheap)! Just pin up some black and white photos in the same size in a simple grid.


All white frames and a fun colorway make this picture wall work.


A picture wall with just mirrors creates a scuptural appeal.


Below they have mixed white, black and silver but kept the artwork and photos in black and white. So warm and welcoming in an entry.


The organic shape of this gallery leads me to believe that the homeowners add to it as their life unfolds. It feels so organized without being planned. My favorite are the maps with thumbtacks pinpointing their travels.

It's taken me nearly a year just to get as far as I have on mine and it's not finished yet! I have to say, however, it's been a fun process pulling it all together - I wanted a very eclectic mix of items but stuck within a mostly neutral scheme with a bit of orangey red as well...

If you scroll down in this post, you can see the wall in my dining room...

I love the images you've shown, so many ways to do this! xxx
