Gallery Walls – Progress in the Parlour

The Parlour at RedAgape Guesthouse

Gosh I love a good gallery wall! I have a slight obsession with them and have included them in the guesthouse and my own home. Painting the parlour walls this deep rich navy was one of the best decisions I’ve made at the house. The room was smallish and dark and rather than fight against the natural moodiness,  I decided to embrace it. It’s surprising how the dark walls make the room feel welcoming, cosy and warm. I began planning a gallery wall against the navy base even before I’d picked the paint colour. And gold seemed like the natural choice.

The Gold Bedroom at RedAgape Guesthouse

I have a small gallery wall featuring gold in one of the bedrooms too, which means I have to split my gold framed finds between to the two spaces. Neither wall is complete yet, but that’s ok because I love how each wall is growing and evolving. Over the weekend I went treasure hunting again for gold frames. flower oil painting gallery wallThis pretty oil painting framed in gold was a stand out during my treasure hunt. It’s so pretty and feminine. I did find another larger framed oil painting of flowers, which was stunning, but the budget didn’t allow it this time. Pictured below is the progress so far. What do you think?

Gallery Wall – Bedroom Styling

Gallery wall for girls bedroom My daughter and I finished the gallery wall in her bedroom over the school holidays, so I thought I’d share it with you. We had talked about adding a gallery wall for a while, so we had already collected most of the bits and pieces. When we found the watercolour print from IKEA, a couple of weekends ago, we finally felt motivated to get started. Teen bedroom gallery wall This is such an affordable way to decorate a wall. We created the large triangle artwork ourselves using paint and washi tape on canvas and the silhouette was from a craft project I started last year.Gallery wallsThe Pokemon illustration was drawn by my eldest daughter and most of the other pieces we had already. We also used some washi tape to fill in a couple of the gaps. This is really easy to remove when we get tired of it or find something better to replace it.

I love the shading in the hair and bow. Gallery wall idea
