Master Bedroom Gallery Wall
The master bedroom t.v. is no longer floating on the wall all lonely anymore. Now it’s surrounded by a bunch of frames. I wanted less of a “BAM! there’s a t.v. in your face” look and more of a “there are a lot of fun frames on the wall and oh look, there’s a t.v. hiding in there” look. Hence, the gallery wall.
I know a lot of people prefer not to have a t.v. in the bedroom, to create a more calm and serene space, where you digitally shut off. B.J. and I are not those people. I love getting in bed to watch a DVRed show or a quality episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Don’t judge. But, that doesn’t mean I love the look of a giant t.v. on the wall. Luckily, mounting it, disguising the cords and surrounding it by a bunch of fun frames kind of distracts the eye.
I basically created this gallery with a hodge podge of stuff: an Ikea NYC print, a wedding photo, an engagement photo, the back of a coupon (I’m not kidding), a fun photo of my niece in my high heals by the great Ben Elsass Photography, a cardboard monogram S, a Cincinnati map print from Etsy and a couple DIY pieces.
One of the DIY pieces is made from watercolor paintings created by Charley and myself. It was her first time using watercolors so I painted along side her that day. The other DIY piece is made up of important dates-our wedding date, Charley’s birthday and baby number two’s birthday (to be determined). I used a sharpie and some fabric for that project.
The first few days after I hung everything up, I just starred at it happily. It’s such a better view than our previous one. I love the mix of wood frames, metal frames, black frames and white frames. It seems less formal and more collected.
I especially love this little moment happening on the dresser…
I’m happy to say that we made some more progress in here over the weekend, as in DIY night stands, a new bed frame, new bedding…can’t wait to share soon! Pin It
