OK. Here’s my Monday morning question for you.

Who doesn’t love staring at a cool, well-designed gallery wall?

You too?

Because today I get to tell you all about this fun little gallery wall project organized by my uber talented friends Mary Ann and Cindy.

The idea is pretty straightforward (otherwise moi would be in trouble).  On next Monday October 13th, all these fabulous participants are going to share a “before” photo of the wall they’ll be transforming. And the big Reveal--with all those juicy behind-the-scene tips—is just one week later on October 20th.

Now I have to admit. There aren’t many rooms inside our new fixer upper that are what you’d call, blogworthy.

(Ok, like zero)

But if you’ve been a visitor here, you already know the story. How we relocated from our family home in Northern California and landed down here in sunny Huntington Beach, and recently moved into our home.

Only being so close to these gorgeous waves meant trading our comfortable 3,400 square foot home for something very …hmmm, let’s just say the phase, ‘Welcome to my humble abode,’ has new meaning for me...

  So no. I won’t be going crazy with the camera shots around here unless you want to see a lot of “Before” rooms that have nothing to do with this gallery wall.

But...

Yippee….. I do have ONE room that’s ready for this fun project and I can’t wait to show you next week.

In the meantime let’s talk some gallery wall inspiration.

When it comes to creating an arrangement for your own wall there’s plenty of resources out there, like HERE and HERE and HERE.

But it really depends on your own style.

Do you prefer more cohesive artwork in a classic grid lay-out?

Or do like the salon style?

hanging some pieces closer and others farther apart and mixing frame styles…

Do you prefer to measure and create a “map” before putting the first nail in your wall?

Or do you like playing around with your collection

until you achieve the look you want?

I’ve got some ideas for this wall of mine.

But honestly, I can’t wait to see what some of my favorite bloggers are planning. These gals are the real thing and thank you Cindy and Mary Ann for including me with this talented bunch.

……BTW--I’m so glad you stopped by on my Day 6,

…yep. I’m still at it.
