That sounds fancy, doesn't it? Well, if it is in my house it can't be too fancy! A gallery wall is just a bunch of pictures hung on the wall. It can have a common theme, such as the same color frames, same subject, same mats, etc. I'm sure you have seen these all over the blogosphere. Here are a couple that I like:

Matching white frames and mats:
Just lots of interesting stuff going on and not matchy-matchy:
Here's my gallery wall...nothing fancy:
I just chose pictures of people, places, and things that are important to me.
I wish you could have seen what was on this dark wall before. Alas, my big, ugly dark oil painting is now languishing in a consignment store waiting to be saved by some nice, new family. I think the light colors and special subjects really brighten up sad wall in my home.
More about art sources next week...here's a hint: ETSY!
What do you think of gallery walls? Do you have one in your house? Would you put one in?
