There are two things that I've always wanted in my house when I finally own one. A giant library with packed floor to ceiling bookshelves (think Beauty and the Beast here) complete with an over-sized, comfy chair (or two) and a giant photo gallery wall. Maybe even one completely devoted to just black and white prints. Well, seeing as I'm living in a midtown apartment, there isn't quite room for these things just yet.
Enter the gallery wall.
Gallery walls are all the rage aren't they? They literally pop up everywhere on my Pinterest boards and blog land. I see a new one all the time and wish I could automatically recreate it into my home. I have seem some incredible gallery walls and have waited for the day where I could finally have my own. Well friends, I'm happy to say that time has come.
I love my room in my new apartment. It has windows, lots of windows. Six of them to be exact. I love windows. My bed is centered in the middle of the windows facing my bedroom door and the one giant wall that has no windows. When I first saw that space, my first thought was gallery wall. And my giant California map was going to be the center of attention. I love the way the space turned out. There might be some weird spacing issues or some crooked paintings or pictures, but it makes me happy when I see it first thing in the morning. And the light from my simple, yet classic, little lamp bounces off the wall just perfectly.
There's a little snippet of the new apartment for you. I know it wasn't much by any means, but I can't wait to share some more with y'all soon. It has so many fun, little details that I love. Like the hardwood floors. I can't get over them you guys. And our small, semi-winding staircase. You'll just have to come back later for those!
Do you have a gallery wall in your house or apartment?
