Full Disclosure: I don’t own any fine art. I appreciate art, but much prefer filling my walls with photographs of people I love. Fortunately, my great-grandmother + grandmother were vigilant about preserving family photos. Like their homes I grew up in, our home is peppered with the faces of several generations. Besides honoring those we love, these familial gallery walls make for entertaining conversation. It’s fun to watch my boys peer at photos of their great-great-great-grandparents and imagine what kind of people they were. And it gives me the perfect opportunity to pass down the stories I was told. Recently, I decided to add another photo collage to our family room. And while figuring out the perfect configuration, I pulled together and decided to share this gallery wall inspiration. You know, in case you’re thinking of designing one, too. ♡

Gallery Wall INspiration
…And by the way, gallery walls aren’t just for photos. Hanging your prized art, whether fine or fingerpainted, adds so much warmth and creativity to a space.
One of my very favorite spaces to create gallery walls is in dining rooms and breakfast areas. What better breaking-the-bread conversation starter is there than a display of unique photographs and art?
Creating little pockets of joy around our homes is the ultimate goal, right? And what better way to inject happiness into a space than with personal photos, kids’ art, or even a series of torn pages from our favorite books? Whether you’re thinking custom framint or DIY, Framebridge and IKEA are great resources. (Check my SHOP page for any current deals.) What special people, places, and things could you coordinate into a collage? Look no further than your photo albums, scrapbooks, and bookshelves to find unique gallery wall inspiration right under your nose.
