My Family Room Gallery Wall

Posted by on Feb 27, 2013 in brass, family room | 24 comments

I have been seeing gallery walls all over the place.

I think they are so interesting.

I love the mix of pictures.

I have no shortage of pictures in my house.

I set about collecting a group of them, and started hanging.

I like the results.

Most people would look at my house and consider most of my walls gallery walls.

I tend to hang an abundance of pictures.

I really only hang the things that I love, but I tend to love a lot.

I am always amused by the reaction of people when they first walk into my house.

“Wow! ย This is a lot of stuff.”

“It is all so interesting!”

“It feels so cozy in here.”

I often wonder if I should take that as a compliment, or start taking down some pictures.

I have a friend that is afraid to hang a picture because she might not like it after it is hung and then she will have a hole in her wall.

I do not live by that same philosophy.

Once, before I painted my kitchen, I counted how many holes were in my walls just for her.

I stopped counting at 87.

The good thing is, you could not see all of the holes because there were so many things on the wall.

I am working on rearranging some things in my dining room.

I have my hammer and nails out, and am ready to go.

  1. I would much rather have a hole in my wall than NO pictures hanging!
    I think your house looks like a fun & love filled home.

  2. Very pretty, Melissa! I love gallery walls. I have one in our living room over the sofa. I’m also thinking about doing one on the wall behind the front door because it just looks so empty, bare and boring.

  3. Melissa I LOVE your style and wouldn’t change a thing!! You know I love the way you group things together..from your gallery walls to your vignettes, it always looks so beautiful!

  4. I love your gallery wall. I think they are so interesting and show your personality. Hugs, Marty

  5. I love gallery walls – yours is fabulous with that sign mixed in! 87 holes is worth it to get what you love!

  6. love it! it all fits so perfectly together and in that space! fabulous job! i love the vintage prints. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I love the Gallery wall.Very tastefully done…it does not look cluttered by any means…I LOVe your french linen pillows on your sofa. I am on the prowl for pillows like that in my Family Room. Greetings from a new blogger. Here is the link to my family room if you want to take a snoop and leave input

  8. Love the way your family room looks ! You have done a great job with your gallery walls !

  9. I have not done any gallery walls, but do love them, and yours looks great. I change things up too much to commit! I loved your burlap shade, I did the same thing with the large burlap, but love how the smaller burlap ribbon in a bow adds such a charm to it.

  10. I love this gallery wall! I am always jealous of people who can put these together–mine always look like a jumbled mess! I found you at Link Up With Me, Liz Marie–thanks for sharing!

  11. Command strips are my friend. Tons of photo galleries and no nail holes! I put up a gallery this week, too You can take a look here: http://www.dejongdreamhouse.com/2013/03/chair-rail-family-gallery.html

  12. Melissa, you do have a lot of things, but you have managed to display everything in such a marvelous way that they look like the treasures they are, not stuff!! I love the gallery wall.

  13. Wow! Your gallery wall looks amazing! Mine still holds only 1 picture!! I need help arranging them!!
    Found you on Mop It Up Mondays!

  14. i like how all the frames are different. it turned out really nice!

  15. I have gallery walls in my home too. But you have nothing on debbie dabble – she does decorating on steroids.

  16. 87 holes, oy! it looks good, though. we just added some more holes in our dining room by switching up our gallery wall…the boyfriend wasn’t too happy about it, so it ain’t getting changed for a verrrrry long time!

  17. I agree with Marty’s comment above. I want to see homes with personality that reflect the people who live in them. Nothing more boring than p-e-r-f-e-c-t according to someone else’s tenets of what is de rigeur decor. Bah! I have nail holes all over my house and what’s more, when I did my gallery wall recently I didn’t pre-arrange where I was going to hang stuff or use paper cut-outs and tape them to the wall either. I have an entire galaxy of nail holes now, LOL! And yep, mostly covered up by the stuff that’s hanging on the wall ๐Ÿ™‚ Visiting from Savvy Southern Style’s Wow-Us Wednesday.

  18. Show what you love! And cozy is what makes a home. Definitely compliments!

  19. Love all the choices. It really adds personality and charm to your place.

  20. It looks fab! I always have a hard time arranging things on the wall. Thanx for partying at THT!

  21. I love the abundance of pretty pictures! I teeter back and forth between wanting things clean and simple and wanting a rich, cozy look like yours. I think your walls are beautiful and interesting!

  22. I love all the stuff on your walls. I do the same thing, but I life in a very dusty desert country so for folks here, they really think I’m crazy. Everyone pretty much lives in sparse surroundings because they don’t want to clean, but I figure there’s gonna be dust no matter what so why fight it. The more the merrier! Best wishes to you, Tammy

  23. I love it all! No one can ever accuse me of being a minimalist either. lol Your gallery wall is so pretty! Great job!

  24. You have a way with hanging pictures – beautiful gallery wall!
