Aside from my family & friends, pictures are probably the thing I cherish the most. I take more photos than I know what to do with (I took over 5,000 pictures in A’s first year - and that is not an exaggeration), so displaying them in our home is extremely important to me.
When we bought our split-level home, I had to modify my dream gallery wall. I knew I could fill the stairwell and hallway with photos, but they would be separate from each other. I figured by using the same frames throughout, I could make them appear as a cohesive unit. I spent a lot of time with newspaper taped to the wall, trying to find the perfect arrangement of frames. I didn’t want to rush into putting them on the wall, and regret my arrangement later.
I love love LOVE our gallery wall. It is one of the first things you see when you walk into our home, and the little sneak peek you get from the foyer draws your eye up the stairs. It is a wonderful snapshot of our life - our wedding, baby pictures of A, puppy pictures of Otto, and some family pictures thrown in there too. My only wish is that I had more wall space!
