I have been seeing gallery walls a lot lately and I have to say, I wish I had a wall to gallerize (I like to make up verbs). There are so many ways to do it and here are some of my faves:
From Janet at The Gardener's Cottage. Actually, I guess I can blame her wall for my inspiration. She has "simply stopped shopping" and made this beautiful wall in her bedroom from pictures she had stowed away in her basement. Amazing!
From Architectural Digest, a mix of paintings, drawings, personal photographs, books, busts and even a Victorian gown. It seems to be the room for all the things you didn't think had anywhere else to go, and yet it works so beautifully. I even love the papers and notes clipped to the lamp shade!
