{inspiration: gallery walls}

I am planning on making a gallery wall in my family room. I have been thinking about it for a while. The idea came to me because I don't know what to do with my engagement portrait. It's a canvas picture framed in a very thick contemporary looking frame. It's a huge picture, 20x24. At the time it seemed like a great idea, now we don't know what to do with it. So, we have decided to put it up in the family room along with other family and friends photos.

The walls in that room are painted dark brown. It's the "manly room" in the house. It is intended to be my hubby's room. Somehow, some flowery patterns have made their way over there, but mainly, it's a more masculine room.

I've been buying frames for the past month. I want a uniform/eclectic look, if that makes sense at all. I'm keeping it uniform by only using brown frames. Now, the styles are all different.

I promise some pictures when the project is completed! For now, here are some inspiration pictures.

And Happy Monday!
