Wednesday Wallcoverings

Hi loves!  Today we are taking a momentary break from "Wedding Wednesday" and focusing instead on wall decor.  I am trying to pace out the wedding posts since I still have about 6 months before my big day!   I took inspiration for today's post from this gorgeous interior:


The collection of interesting art framed in a mix of black, brown, and white frames is stunning.  Placing the work up the entire wall gives the feeling of truly being in a gallery.  I also love the colors of the rug + the cozy corner seat.  This powder bath also utilized the entire wall space to display art:





If the random art arrangements shown above aren't your style (any OCD-ers out there?!), try using the same frame and matte to unify the look:


Placing them in a symmetrical arrangement (and using the principle of 3's!) also helps create a sense of stability:


What's your take on displaying art on your walls?  Do you like the organic feel of gallery walls like me, or do you prefer symmetry and simplicity?

  1. That powder room has been a favorite of mine for a while. Love the moody color on the walls, and come on, those pigeons staring at each other are pretty darn awesome in my book.

  3. I'm working on a gallery wall and trying to deny my OCD tendencies with a more organic installation. LOVING that trellis wallcovering in the Adore Mag shot!

  4. Love this look, we have several art walls in our house, one with all black and white drawings and photos, another of vintage family photos and another with all different kinds of mirrors.

  7. I am a huge fan of the organic gallery walls! Dying to cover our small guest bathroom with cool artwork...it's been on the to-do list forever! Maybe once the wedding planning is over I can finally tackle that project.

  8. I like a mix of both actually! Symmetry in some places and more organic flow in others! Beautiful inspiration!
