Everybody’s Writing About Gallery Walls

I noticed this week there’s a lot of chat in blogland about gallery walls.

You know I want one.

I have to really study this wall from Pottery Barn -- it's so interesting.

I tried to get one here. No success.

The hall between the mudroom and the kitchen is still bare.

Now I’m trying another tactic:  Lay all my pictures, frames, plates, flat objets d’art, etc. on the floor and walk by these things a million times.

I'm thinking vintage with a few surprises.

I’m hoping a grouping or two will start to make sense to me. I want it to be balanced, unusual, interesting, unique, varied. Hope I can find all the little details that will make a gallery wall work.

How would you organize a gallery: theme? color? size? shape?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
