Gallery walls.

Scott hates clutter.  When I display the Christmas cards we receive, it makes him crazy.  Too much going on in a very small space.

I love clutter.  I am naturally very cluttered.  I would have every appliance sitting on my kitchen counter if he would tolerate it.  I also never close programs on my computer.  I know Scott has been at my computer when every program is closed.  I have washed my car maybe three times in our 2.5 years of marriage and I often have crud covering every seat.  Scott could list what he currently has in his car and count it with one hand.  Actually, the cleanliness of his car is probably worth a whole post.  But I digress.

As far as clutter is concerned, we have met somewhere in the middle on most things.

We have not hung anything on our walls yet.  We have lived in our house for almost a month and I think we are still a while from hanging anything.  I want a plan first, and have not yet formulated one.  But as the process begins, I am contemplating a gallery wall.  I love the idea of a gallery wall, however, I am not sure that Scott’s clutter-free mentality will allow it.  I do think it is possible to have a wall of framed pieces in an organized way, but I am drawn to the messier walls of art.

I love these black frames.

This same house has lots of gallery walls.  Above in the bathroom…and below in the bedroom.  I LOVE the bedroom one.

And one on their stairs.  Three gallery walls in one house.  Obviously they do not have a Scott living there.  I will be lucky to convince him that we need one.

Megan has these Ikea picture ledges that I think would be cool to incorporate into a gallery wall.  And for such a good price, why not?

Here’s the Ikea ledges displayed.

Not a huge fan of things sitting on the floor, but I like the look regardless.

My goal is to gather the art that I have, along with a few of my favorite family photographs, and make a gallery wall in our new house–one that Scott will tolerate.
