First of all, thank you so much for the awesome reception of the blog yesterday, when I officially launched it on Instagram. It was quite daunting for me to do it actually, but fortunately, my fear turned out to be unfounded, and I'm very grateful for that.  

I proclaimed on Instagram some days ago that I was considering to replace my gallery shelves with an actual picture wall or gallery wall. When we moved into the apartment almost a year ago, the wall was so big and so white that I just wanted to cover it up immediately. At the moment, I thought the gallery shelves were the perfect solution, because they would allow me to replace and move around the pictures without having to make new holes in the perfect white wall every time (a point my husband seemed very pleased with). However, looking at my gallery shelves now, I am just not pleased with the look, so I think, I at least have to try a picture wall out.

Although very different, I think the above pictures show how gallery walls are done to perfection. I really like the monochrome and subdued look, mixing photographies with illustrations in different kinds and sizes of frames. However, the biggest achievement in making a picture wall is though, in my opinion, to make it look perfectly random, yet still balanced and pleasing for the eye, which I think you find in each of the above pics. 

What do you think? Do you have a picture wall? And if you have any ideas for illustrations or black/white photographies, you think I should check out, please do leave a link in the comments.

  1. Perfect timing for a post about picture walls! I had one above my sofa before I painted the wall, but now it's all bright white canvas waiting for something beautiful.. but as you, said I'm also little bit afraid of making holes into that perfect white wall (I refilled all the previous holes before painting to start fresh as I want something little bit different from what I had). I hope it won't take too much time before deciding what I want to see there and what would be the layout :)

    1. Well perfect timing then, dear Anu :D I just think, it is so, so difficult to figure out what to put there, because I want to do it right this time (I hate painting ;-) ). However, I am trying to make collages on polyvore to see what works together. Hopefully, I will find the perfect combination soon. Looking forward to seeing yours though :-)
