Love Nesting: Gallery Walls

My creative wheels have been on non-stop, high-speed spin these past few weeks and not only do I have a long list of projects I want to tackle this Spring and Summer, but I now have a designated "love nest idea binder" that I have started to fill and organize with magazine clippings that inspire me. This week, I am obsessed with the idea of a gallery wall somewhere in our house. I love pictures and think that a proper display of them in a home really reflects the people that live there. I have been thinking about ways that I can incorporate some of our gorgeous wedding photos on our wall as "art" and I think a gallery wall just may be the perfect avenue. While sifting through all of the pictures I have bookmarked, I noticed a common theme: neat, organized and well thought out. Don't get me wrong, I love a whimsical arrangement of all shapes, sizes and mediums, but when it comes to our house, I love organization and clean lines. We loathe clutter around here!


These white frames look so crisp and tidy against the taupe walls. I love the varying sizes, fun mix of prints and it's not "too much".

I absolutely adore black and white pictures. And these oversized frames- LOVE.

This is my kind of gallery wall! Even, organized and a common theme throughout.

"Neat and orderly". Enough said.

Varying black frames with black and white photos is a nice, classic look.

Just plain fun.
And let me introduce you to another project I have been dying to make- a framed chalkboard! I do believe our kitchen needs one ASAP.
