Did the Mona Lisa Always Hang In a Museum?…..
Did you ever think about how famous paintings did not always hang in a museum. Before some one bought these famous paintings and donated them to a museum, they lived in some ones house. They were lovingly placed on the wall so that everyone could see them. Now do you ever wonder if they were part of gallery wall Or if they hung by them selves. Since I started my apartment redo, I have started realizing that it does not just include furniture, wall color and accessories. It also includes how you place your photos and art on the wall. Every chance I get I look at art walls that other people have created in there homes. I have been reading that consistency with the frames you use will make your art pop. Since learning this I have been popping my photos and art out of there frames I had and slowly I have been replacing them with ones that will make more consistency on the wall. I am thinking I want to go with gold and white frames. I want to do this because I have a really nice Gray Malin photo that is in a white frame already. I also think white and gold will go nicely with the rest of the colors in my house. Now as for what to include in your gallery wall. I believe your gallery wall is a personal thing. I feel putting photos and are that is special to you and makes you happy should be what you hang. Now below I have included some pictures of my gallery wall now this is a wall in progress so not everything had a frame yet. Also I have zoomed in on some key pieces that make my wall special to me. Also I have included other art walls for inspiration.
This is another art wall I have. This wall has shadow boxes that hold mettles from half marathons I did for the first time. I did these my self because the ones you can buy are way to expensive. I likes these better because they have more meaning.
