The second one being the most clear was frame-worthy and a couple days later my photo-printing procrastination paid off when this showed up in my email:
Instead of conforming to the gallery wall as it stand hangs, I am gradually going to work on transitioning it into something that works and looks better. For starters, I no longer care about finding the exact black frame. In fact, I plan on mixing some white frames in, too. Mostly, because I have a ton of those. Also, I am open to ledges and mixing in some black and white sentimental art pieces, too.
So, here’s the new inspiration:
Can you see it? Are ya feelin it? For me, it feels so much more carefree and informal which is the direction our home is happily headed. Informal we got down. Carefree? Working on it.
Are you just as happy it is Friday as I am??
I think that could look really great. In Ralph Lauren’s home, his gallery wall is all in color and it looks awesome. Because this particular one is going to be on our very open staircase that overlooks the living room, kitchen and dining room–so I wanted it to take a more neutral tone. Although, I am not opposed to adding a pop of color when it comes down to it. You know me.
I love your inspiration photo, but I have a question: Do all of the photos and art need to be black and white? How do you think it would look with a hodge podge of paintings, pictures, and other mixed media?
i have those same ikea ledges in our master bedroom. so quick and easy to change it up when i want. love the inspiration photo and greta is just absolutely precious!
Oh that Greta, she sure looked cute at church! Love the photo. And LOVE the gallery wall. This is exactly what I had planned for our gallery wall in the dining room, I even had the $ set aside. And then we decided to move, so it is on hold until we get in the new place. I found ledges at, where else, Ikea that are perfect. Good luck, I’m sure it will look as fab as the rest of your place!
Love Greta’s outfit. I would wear it in my size if possible. :)
You had me at corn dogs. We’ll have to check it out this weekend and give you a full report!
Stop it. You DO know Barry’s. Right? It’s on Main St. in Spanish Fork on the East side of the street just south of the library. It’s a podunk little drive-thru that I grew up at. The ice cream. The corn dogs. Oh my!
Barry’s. Barry’s? Tell me more.
I love the pics of Greta-girl. She looks like a little grown-up! I’m diggin’ the new inspiration wall. It totally fits your personality and theme and I can’t wait to see it all up. Should take, what, a week? You’re so fast. Hope you guys have a great weekend! Go to Barry’s for me. Please.
Lovely pics of Greta! I love the inspiration, it looks fabulous!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
