Yeah yeah, Abbey did it first

Domino has a "Displaying Family Photos" gallery up which dovetails rather nicely into a gallery wall post I've been playing around with. Abbey did a kickass post before I got my act together, so I'm just going to add a few I've been saving in the Lampshade Vault of Everlasting Beauty. And I adore the cork wall in the photo above.







This last one I do not approve of. It looks like it might explode at any moment. But I threw it in for Erin.

I do not approve of bulletin boards in general, but I kind of love that cork wall... I really need to stop finding materials and patterns I like, because I can't have EVERYTHING in one house, can I???

I also approve of bookshelf groupings, because it visually pares down the chaos of bookshelfness.

The cork wall is really nice, helps that the cork looks so beautiful and natural on its on. Love gallery walls, thanks for all the inspiration!

these are great - minus the bottom explosion but I keep thinking one thing. none of these people have children. or rather, my real thought behind that - I couldn't do these in my home so low to the floor or the dudes would be breaking pictures right and left.

Well hello there! Hello from Canada! I need a new friend in NZ and so I am placing you on my blog tour and I wanted you to know that I 'get' you. Love your blog and ideas. I'll be back often! (p.s. I found you through my good friend Abbey)

So does this mean that we are not just restricted to hanging family photos in hallways anymore?

Raina said...

It depends on how good-looking your family members are.

I kid, I kid.

What an inspiring post! I love gallery walls. In fact, my roommate and I just completed one in our den last night! I love the cork and wish we would have thought of something like that. How pretty!
