One of my goals this year is to create a few gallery walls in our home – one for our upstairs hallway, our staircase, bedrooms and living room. 

Gallery walls are a great way to add interest, pattern and color into a room whether you use black and white photographs, landscape paintings, children’s artwork or family photos!

Black and white photography and sketches look fabulous massed together to create this gallery wall:

  2. Wow, this has got to be the largest inventory of ideas I've seen on the subject! I always find picture arranging challenging so these posts will definitely help. Thank you!

    1. You're welcome - have fun making your photo gallery Susan!

  3. So very pretty. I truly admire the look in other people's homes but I hate to dust. Hate it. I'll just have to have fun pinning (and I did) and leave my own walls with one or two. :)
