THIS is how you do it…
Have you noticed that design mags have been littered (literally) with gallery walls lately? After seeing a lot of not-so-successful examples, I was starting to feel like “cluttered must equal good” – until I saw Elizabeth Sullivan of Modern 24/7′s post yesterday of her client’s bubblegum pink bedroom, complete with an enviable floor-to-ceiling art display. It reminded me that I HAVE seen great examples, so I decided to gather them up for review. In my humble opinion, I think these work really well. You?

This photo inspired an entire office scheme for me back in 2007!
Although now I like the look of varied frame styles & art types…
These examples inspired me to try a gallery wall in my new office scheme, using the painting I purchased from artist Erin Ashley as a centerpiece. I thought I’d add in one of Leighton’s paintings from this past weekend, maybe one of mine, perhaps that piece I framed of hers, plus a vintage Vogue illustration, and a quick sketch I did of the Trevi Fountain in Rome in 2003. I’ll find more to add I’m sure. Fun project, I’ll let you know how it goes!
