I updated the gallery wall in our bedroom and I thought I’d share a blog about it!
Whenever I get asked about my tips on creating a gallery wall, my number one tip is to lay it out on your floor. That’s what I did when I decided I wanted to create a collage on this bedroom wall. I collected all the art pieces and started experimenting. Usually it works best when you start with your biggest piece, because that will take us most of the space. So I placed that one first, and worked my way around it.
I will admit I have loads of art pieces left to hang, but as you can see we already made the most of this piece of wall, so I will have to come up with a new wall somewhere in the house.
What I wanted to share with you on the blog today as well, is how great it looks adding a round piece with all those straight lines. To soften it up a little, you could say.
With all these rectangular frames ánd the closet doors next to it, it can be a little harsh. So a little round piece goes a long way, in this case the Enter Mirror by brand I love Ferm Living. It’s designed by Trine Andersen and I already have a few of her designed accessories in our house. Quite a few, now that I think about it. A quick count led me to at least 7 pieces so as I said, big fan! I love Ferm Living for their usually minimalistic designs and the Scandinavian feel. I already have a few of their pieces on my wishlist.
I love the minimalistic design of the mirror, combined with the cognac colored leather. And that color works really well with the colored ceiling, right? I love it when a plan comes together ♥
For me personally a gallery wall works best if it’s a combination of everything. By that I mean a combination of personal pieces, but mostly a gallery wall filled with all types of frames. In this case I combined all sorts of wooden frames with black and white frames. Some have a passepartout, and some completely fill out the frame. I always feel these combinations create an interesting overall look.
Next to all these personal art pieces, this is such a cosy scene thanks to all the other accessories in this room. The vintage Persian rug, the plaid on the bed, the vintage cabinet, etcetera. On the left we have our walk-in closet.
Hope you liked this post and feel inspired to go create your own gallery wall! Please let me know if you have any questions.
