Gosh, isn't he dreamy?
He's definitley my little adventurer who n e v e r stops. Seriously, sitting's fun too, Theron Drake.[I'm talking to you, kid.]
But, that's not the purpose of the blog today.
Today we're talking gallery walls. Are you sick of them yet? I'm not. In fact, it's one of the most consistent things I am drawn to in home decor. I'm not a stickler for all one color frames, or perfect symmetrical layouts; to each their own.
I'm sure most people give my ideas the side eye. Ha!
Here's what we started with when we moved in this summer:
And, here's what we've been living with for the past couple of months. Sorry for the blah photo but I snapped this one right before bed the other night.
I am loving our white walls and I haven't been too quick to just fill them with placeholders. I wanted to make sure that I was truly digging the gallery wall direction before I just bought/made things to fill the space.
I basically am obsessed with Emily Henderson's design eye and have had this picture [photo by Zeke Ruelas] saved on my pinterest for what seems like forever.
It became my inspiration for the scale and size of our TV wall, which is definitely a work in progress.
I snapped that picture on Instagram yesterday and then decided to add the butterfly art later on. I still have a couple more pieces to add but will do that in time.
The "I want to have adventures with you" and butterfly pieces are actually a hand towel and fabric runner from H&M home. You can find them here and here.
The silver leaf canvas was a DIY project that I blogged about here. The small daffodil needlepoint was a thrifting find.
You guys remember the "This is so the happy place" DIY from the other day and the floral needlepoint and paint by numbers pieces were flea market & Goodwill finds.
Like I said earlier, I am definitely not finished with the wall, but soon will be! I need some plants to ground the space but I'm not in a hurry to get some because my black thumb is out in full force. I don't have any tricks or tutorials to share for my gallery wall process. I simply just eyeball where I want the frame to go and nail some holes. Sometimes I get it right the first time, and other times I have a few extra nail holes in my wall. While not perfect, it's always worked for me. Those of you who are more precise might want to do the whole template method!
Have a great week, friends!
