When we moved in to our home our wall looked like this.
I LOVED the result but everything was looking a bit mono-chromatic. Gray and white were dominating the room a little too much. (See more of the room here).
So I moved the Birch Trees to the other side of the wall going down the stair wall (more about that process here).
I painted the wall a bold, dramatic jet black.
The Mr. put up a small fit. But the room needed some visual interest and pops of color. My plan was to do an eclectic gallery wall with a mix of different frames and art.
That was over a month ago…I have a few frames up but staging a gallery wall is a bit more tricky than you would think. The idea was to make the wall a gallery of pieces collected over time. I generally prefer things very symmetrical. The eclectic look is playing funny tricks on my perfectionist mind and I’m having a hard time arranging the frames just right, which is why I haven’t posted about it.
These rooms sold me on the look:
As soon as I get over my commitment issues I’ll reveal the final result. Stay tuned.
Until then here’s a sneak peak that some of you spied when I posted my holiday dinner party.
