Wall of Art for the Stairway

I found this gallery wall on Pinterest many months ago, and it made me long for a stairwell of my own.

I love the black and gold frames mixed together. The staggered arrangement placed in the corner is such a unique idea. When we moved to a home with its very own stairwell, I knew I would have to mimic this idea.

I had several pieces of art I wanted to include, but not all of my frames were in the black and gold family. Luckily, we had spray paint on hand, and I could easily create the look I desired.

 

 

After this, it was simply a matter of arranging. When I do gallery walls, I try not to worry so much about spacing and just go with my gut when hanging different pieces. One thing I do recommend is to hang the largest pieces first and fill in around them.

 

 

My favorite part about my new gallery wall is that it has room to grow! I can’t wait to see where my flea market adventures and boutique shopping take this little decor feature in the future!

 

 

 

 

This would look great with any metallic color – silver, copper, bronze – you name it! In this space, I really like how the gold stands out against the gray walls.

How would you decorate your stairwell? Let me know in the comments!

Gallery Wall Update: After the Move

I recently did a post showing the beautiful gallery wall we had in our apartment’s master bedroom. Since we moved into our house, I decided to move and change the wall of art a bit.

We purchased a gorgeous canvas with a pink botanical for less than $30 at HomeGoods! This became the new focal point of the gallery wall. The rest fell into place around it. I love gallery walls for just this reason – there does not need to be any certain pattern or arrangement, just do what you think looks great!

Our gallery wall is now in our loft area above our sassy pink futon. What do you think?
