Creating a gallery wall

Gallery walls are my new favorite thing.  We tend to do them a lot at our Rough Luxe Market monthly sale just due to the amount of vintage art I like to buy.  Anyone can make a gallery wall in their home.  It can be made with new and vintage art (or a combo). You can also use your kids art which is a really great way to add some sentiment in your home and have some unique art.  I also think it can be fun to mix in your initials, a mirror of other fun accents to give the wall interest.  It can evolve overtime as you find treasures.

I like to start with a focal point and build out from there.  In general if you have been reading the blog a while you know I like to let things evolve so I’m not a big planner when it comes to my gallery walls.  For those of you that are here is a great resources I found on pinterest.
