Friday Find – September 9

We’ve recently repainted our stairwell and upper hallway.  I want this area to house a gallery of photos of family and friends.  I’ve been playing around with how to arrange this gallery and found the following example, that I think may be the winner:

Although this one also caught my eye, since I’m dealing with two walls.  I love how the display goes around the corner and up the stairs:art-stairway-apt-therapy-400x360Source: apartment therapy via

Funny enough, my colour palette is along these shades as well.  Check out the great post on Wall Gallery Displays from the “Your Decorating Hotline” blog here.

What do you think?  Do you have a preference? Or other ideas?  Let me know!


I also wanted to share some news with you.  You may have noticed a new addition on my sidebar from  I’ve put together a book of photos I’ve taken with some inspirational quotes I’ve collected over the years.  Check it out here.  And if you are interested, it is available for purchase.  Enjoy!


  1. I like the top one as it looks like you could easily add to it without breaking the rhythm. but like you, I also like the gallery going around a corner. The poosibilities are endless.

  2. I like the top one too. Very cool. Too bad I saw this AFTER I just rehung mine!

  3. These are gorgeous! I love picture walls! Have a lovely weekend, Kellie xx

  4. I love both ideas - why not use both? You could easily carry the layout from the top wall around the corner like in the second picture. Only the pictures on the second wall could be sloped, so opposite from how they are in the second picture (does that make any sense?!)

  5. Love the top image. No matter which way you go, no doubt it will be wonderful since it will display those you love! And btw, your photo/inspiration book is just gorgeous!!!
