The final project in making over my daughter's room was to fill her big, empty wall. Since she's so fickle, and I wanted to keep costs down, her gallery wall is a collection of DIY projects!
Thanks to Ikea, the Dollar Store, and some creative thinking, she now has a fun and colorful wall that can be changed and updated on a whim!

Have more artwork and photographs than you know what to do with? Don't hide them in a closet — display them all on a gallery wall in your home. If you've been tempted to try this art arrangement but have been a little overwhelmed, never fear. It's easier than it looks. Because the art work has a more relaxed look than carefully spaced and geometric arrangements, you can also afford to be a little more playful with scale, spacing, and choice of art. Check out my favorite inspirational photos and tips for making a gallery wall work in your home.
I finally finished the wall around Jan. 2 after living with paper placeholders of the pictures for a few weeks! I am very proud, as I did the entire thing by myself without my husband helping with the drill, etc. I have had it up for a couple of months now and I still smile when I walk by. I like the mix of family photos and objects, and I also like the symmetry of the two sides without being exact clones of each other.

If you're short on large-scale, statement-making artwork, creating a salon-style cluster wall is a clever way to give petite pieces more presence. There's no trick to it other than hanging your favorites. As Jonathan Adler pointed out in our interview, "If each object within your salon wall is really fab and is a reflection of you and is something that you love, you can hang it all in a bold, salon-style, and it will work."
Even though salon-style walls are generally a foolproof solution, you can run into trouble if you have super high ceilings or expanses of empty wall space. So I love this trick in the home of Swedish designer and illustrator Camilla Lundsten, seen in Swedish ELLE Interiör. By using black paint to frame the artwork cluster, Camilla made her small art pieces a can't-miss focal point and ensured that they didn't appear to just be floating within her big white wall. The baroque-style shape that she painted is also much easier on the eyes and "transitional" than a sharp, modern rectangular shape.
Would you try this in your home?

There's a new men's clothing store in Manhattan with gorgeous wood paneling and a beautiful salon-style gallery wall that I want to simply copy and paste into my home! From the shape of the shop's dapper black leather armchairs to the vase filled with branches, lust-worthy design elements abound. In other words . . . the space would be my dream closet! Can you guess what store it is?
