Family room art gallery wall

>> Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I have been thinking of doing an art gallery wall ever since we moved in the house in October of 2010. I have mentioned how much I love birds in decor. I have proclaimed myself an avian addict in one of the earlier posts.

I am finally done with the art gallery wall in my family room.  It's time for the reveal. Here it is!


I used the Hanging studio Easle from Pottery Barn to hang the pictures. I like mixing vintage prints with modern photography. I did limit myself to 4 main colors. yellow, black, sea green blue and brown. Most of the pictures have bird theme but I fell in love with this magnolia picture from Melanie Alexandra. Although it does not have a bird in it, I think the colors do work with the rest of the art gallery. 

 Here is a closeup.

The family room is still a work in progress. Right now I am working on decorating the mantel. I still have to get a rug and a couple more accessories. I hope you will ignore the blinds just like I do. I need to get roman shades to replace the blinds.

The art gallery is opposite to the kitchen and every time I look at it, I feel happy!  I love the yellow! A little bit of sunshine in my family room.

I will be done with the family room soon!

To know where you can get vintage images at a great  price, check back soon!

that looks great! i love the color palette you used in the pics, and in your whole space. the bold pillows really kick it up a notch. i've just done something like that, in an effort to debrown my living room. the power of pillows, right?

I did something a little similar in my apartment: http://creativecreations-tals.blogspot.com/2011/04/naked-to-dressedwalls.html

and here is another idea of this that I found on the HGTV website.
