Gallery Walls Obsession

It seems I like a gallery wall. Maybe a little too much since almost every room holds one. The first is in the hall that is right off the entry towards the kiddos bedrooms. The bottom right frame will soon hold the kiddos art project the rest are filled by my Mr...


This is the one in KJ's bedroom. It was inspired by the art walls in Moomah.

The two bikes are by Hillarie Tasche who seems to have closed up shop.
The two bottom 5x7 are by Simplesong Designs.
Middle is from Seesaw Letterpress.
The four middle 5x7's are note cards from Moomah.
The two top 5x7's and the right top are by me.

The top left was a gift.


This is in Ellie's room. The green walls photographed much more saturated than they really are.

Top left and large abc print were gifts.
Bottom left was designed by Brooke of Blueprint Bliss.
Top middle and wooden flower are by local artists.



Of course you have seen this image before, but it is part of my gallery wall obsession just with a slight twist.


I have been checking my list off left and right and it feels so good. KJ's room is almost finished just need to sew a pillow for his bed and a few odd and ends. Ellie's room just needs a coat of paint on the bed to finish it off. The office supplies have been ordered and now waiting for arrival so it can be completed. Oh, and my deadline is to have it all done by the weekend. Why such a hurry? Well I am having surgery that will keep me laid up for a good six weeks at least. I know it doesn't really matter, but I do not want any of my uncompleted projects hanging over my head. I am a dweller.

You have such a knack for gallery walls....I love them all! I love the mix of frames, the all-white frames (I need some, by-the-way...pottery barn or IKEA?), and I really love the pier. So good!

All your gallery walls look amazing. I hope the surgery goes well!!

I love them. I too have a few in my house. They are much more interesting to me than a single print...it maybe it's because I can't ever decide on just one! That last pic is wonderful. I've been wanting to do something similar in my living room. Your post hopefuly will inspire me to get working in it! Sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery. Know that many people out there will be sending you well wishes!

I love them too! There's one in my bedroom in my apartment. If I had free reign over the living room there would probably be one there too, but my roommate had great art when we moved in. Also agreeable.

And I love love LOVE the "I am a child of God" pieces. I'm remembering that for when I get married and have babies.

Will pray for a happy surgery! As happy as it can be anyway. And quick recovery - because being laid up, even with everything accomplished, isn't the most fun thing.

Oh, these are all beautiful, Paula! SO much eye candy! Great job!

And surgery? I hope and pray everything goes smoothly with the procedure and the recovery time. Sending virtual hugs...

Love your gallery walls Paula!!! We have one in our basement for all of my husband’s sports memorobillia but I have wanted to do one with the kids pictures for years. I guess I will have to pull the trigger. Do you have any tips?
I hope your surgery goes well and you have a fast recovery. You will still be able to blog, right? :)

Tara said...

Paula,
I received my R&H binders, they are perfect! The gold looks so good when they're on the shelve. So glad you showed them. Have a good 6 week recovery.

Elizabeth said...

Jennifer said...

oh I especially love the one in the hallway! and Kellen's fabulous skills behind the lens certainly don't hurt it, do they?

megan said...

I love your gallery walls! Great job! Hope all goes well with surgery. Take care!

Love them! The corner one is oh-so-cool. I'm still collecting frames and trying to decide which wall is going to turn into our gallery wall.

Lauren said...

I LOVE gallery walls too, thanks for sharing your's. My favorite is the pier in the last photo, just lovely. I did a gallery wall this winter of some of my grandmother's beautiful hand towels. It's such a nice way to view them without using them and damaging them.

Hope you have a quick recovery, will be thinking of you!

Blueprint Bliss said...

I think I need a gallery wall or two in my house!

Yours look so great.

Estelle said...

Keeping many healing and positive thoughts going for your recovery. Totally understand your wanting to get things done beforehand. Do what you can and try to let go of the rest.

Love your gallery walls. They are quite an inspiration for me.

I love a gallery wall. I have a whole inspiration folder filled with images...I'm just waiting for a home with a grand staircase to line along the walls going upstairs. But, I may just incorporate some of your ideas until then!

Vana said...

I have a thing for them too:) Speaking of which i feel so lucky the walls in my new studio are each 11 feet tall. Whoohoo!

the red bungalow said...

I love gallery walls too. I think there is a fine art though to get the perfect balance so the arrangement doesn't look too plain and calculated or too messy and unorganized.

it's time to have your home photographed for a magazine, my dear! this is simply too good. all the gallery walls are gorgeous but the one "with a twist" at the end is simply genius.

I am loving all of these gallery walls. Thank you for sharing the sources on where you got your little boys art. Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Hope you make it through the following weeks.

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

You know that this is one of my big obsessions! You've done such a great job with yours, Paula. You've inspired me to get my act together and get some stuff up on the walls already! :)

Gracie said...

Oh wow! These gallery walls have inspired me to have my own gallery walls. I love the placement and the photos and prints. And I love that you are adding your kids' artwork. Very sweet.

Wahzat Gayle said...

Oh my dream is to have a gallery wall in my hallway... right now it is an art wall which works too. But it will happen I know it.
Love that painting in Ellie's room

Wahzat Gayle said...

oh by the by good luck with the surgery will send positive vibes your way :)

Marija said...

These are gorgeous. Simple and thoughtfully arranged. I know how hard it is to be out of commission with a family, especially young kids. But it sounds like your husband is fantastic and you have tremendous support. Lots of us will be thinking about you and praying for a quick and painless recovery :)
