Decorating is an ever-evolving process. A few weeks ago, the gallery wall in our living room looked like this:
We planned to slowly keep adding frames over time, but I had officially checked it off the 'to do' list. Except, something wasn't quite right about it: the dark frames, next to the dark bookcase, weighed the room down and didn't fit with the light and airy feel we were going for. So I took all the frames down, spraypainted them white, and put them back up again.
(I also moved a few pictures around, so now we need a new piece of art to fill that big empty frame).
I'm much happier with the new look - the white frames make the art stand out and a few dark frames keep the wall from being too light and bright.
I also moved that large print on our mantle to the opposite wall. Another small change, but I feel like I've found the right 'home' for it. And since my hanging mirrors didn't work out, I still have to figure out what to put on the mantle...
