Our sweet old girl Tulip has crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 (swipe to see her sweet face) -
-
-
She came to us as a 3 month old rescue pup with birth defects and the sweetest feistiest personality.  She saw us move into this house, add to our family and ran the pup pack. -
-
-
She never met a person or child she didn't love or would flop over for belly scratches for. She is so dearly missed ❤  I know you'll team up with Kaia and dive into a pool of cheese followed by a roll around in all the of the muddy spots you can find -

2 of our pups are snoozing in here as it's nice and cool, thanks to @tiltsmarthome blinds. #sponsored -
-
-
It used to get SO hot with the afternoon sun just heating up the house, but with these blinds I have been able to #getsmart by setting them to temperature sensitive settings!
-
-
-
They close when the temperature hits the level I selected in the app, which not only helps keep the bedrooms cooler but also my energy bill down.
-
-
-
Definitely check out @tiltsmarthome blinds if you are in the market for super easy to use, smart solar blinds!
-
-
-
And make sure to check out my stories to see the temp control settings in the app + watch how easy they are to use! -
-
-
I am thrilled with these so far and am loving them as are the younger human and furry members of the fam! #tilt

It’s ALL About the Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are the bomb.com peeps.  They are everywhere in the decor/design world and can go just about anywhere. But what do you use in a gallery wall?  How do you decide the layout?  Do I use all the same frames?  Do I even NEED frames?  There are lots of aspects that play into putting together a successful gallery wall which I’m going to address for ya to give you all the tools you need to get it right the first time!

*Do I have a wall that is a good fit for a gallery wall?  YES!  Any long wall with a blank space is the perfect canvas for a gallery wall.  A no brainer location would be your hallways or stairwells.

Here’s a shot of our stairs going up to the 2nd floor and my largest gallery wall/s.   You can see that if I didn’t have the frames on the walls this would B-O-R-I-N-G.  Makes it a perfect spot to inject some creativity.

 

*Do I need to use all of the same frames?  Nope!  But I have here….why?  Because I wanted this area to allow the things I have framed to pop visually and not have your eye distracted by the frames.  Different frames can be fabulous it all depends on the look you are going for!  I’ve seen all black frames (very chic) and a mix so you really can’t go wrong.

A shot of the left side of the hallway, I’ve got all white Ikea frames here.  You can see how the things that are in the frames stand out much more than the frames themselves.

 

*What kind of things do you put in a gallery wall?  Family pics, art prints?  Answer is whatever you love to see and means something to you.  (More tips on personalizing your space here!)

Here’s the other side and you can see I’ve got some family pics, several kids’ artworks, our wedding invitation, diy art and our wands that we picked up on our first ever family trip this year.  They came from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and are wood so more of collector items than toys.  We each picked one from the wand shop, yes we’re super dorky sometimes (ok maybe all the time).  I had the idea to display them in a shadow box as a memory of our trip!  Anyway, the long story short being anything that’s important to you that you want to be surrounded by.

This is the wall opposite our fireplace.  Notice no frames here!! A couple of original art pieces, a giganto wall clock (world market) and a handmade macrame piece.  These are all items I love and showcasing them in a gallery wall makes perfect sense.  *One more idea for something to include in your gallery wall…would be textural elements!  The macrame gives a lovely shot of color and a texture to the wall as does the white painting.  It gives so much more interest to an otherwise blank flat wall.

 

*How do you arrange or hang a gallery wall?  Truth bomb folks, I just look at the wall and start hanging and develop it as I go.  Although this leaves room for error (as in 10 extra holes in the wall) but if you are in the beginning stages of a gallery wall and only have a few pieces it’s a good way to go.  Get them on the wall, staggered and offset and you can build on it as you find more things to add.

*Although if you have several items or pieces to arrange you can do a nifty trick of cutting out sheets of paper in the sizes of your frames or artwork and then tape them on the wall with scotch tape.  You can rearrange and play with the layout without putting ANY  holes in the wall until you are ready to hang!

*You can see that I use all kinds of things in gallery walls.  It’s worth repeating that the best things to include are items you want to be surrounded with, that are fun and say something about you!!

Apologies on the darker lighting…this is the stairwell going to our basement.  We put in a reclaimed wood board (same as our bar top) for a nice shelf space and I opted for a mix of framed and unframed items.  I have a couple of paintings, a diy LOVE piece, a mirror, a vintage number chart and a caricature done of the hubs and I before we got married!  Fun and personalized! (More on personalizing your space here!)

Some scrapped road signs I picked up at flea markets make for a fun and quirky wall statement. Fun fact: our oldest son has developed his own goofy dance he has named the “Happy Jack”  We all attempt it but can’t quite get it down, yes this gives you a glimpse of our family life….we def don’t take ourselves seriously up in here.

And there you have it!  Answers to all the big questions from what walls are good for gallery walls to what to hang to how to hang it! If there’s something you would like me to help out with let me know.  Send me an email or comment and I will get to work putting together a post sharing some helpful tips with whatever is giving you trouble!

And don’t forget to visit ole subscribey oe’r yonder for email excerpts of posts when they are available.  No spam and I don’t give your info to ANYBODY…..it’s just me and my ramblings that will be comin your way.

Have a kickin maja booty kind of day!

    Love the mixed bag of wall art! It brings so much personality to a space. Those road signs crack me up. I’m a sucker for playful, non-serious decor and those are great!
