I am all about SYMMETRY in my life. If there is one on the left, I need one on the right. My blue and white collection has been purchased in many sets of two for this purpose. My bedroom has been a decorating challenge for me since I moved in. Uneven walls and not enough space. My original plan was to have bedside table/bookshelves built in on each side of my bed, but I was talked into taking a huge risk and moving my bed to another wall leaving room on the left side only to work with.
My first thought was no way, but my decorator Meg convinced me to move some furniture around in my condo and put the smaller antique pine dresser next to my bed as my bedside table and accessorize with pretty things. The other suggestion was to do a gallery wall in my bedroom. I didn't react out loud but inside was saying to myself "not likely". A week later, I moved my bed to the other wall and am thinking this new plan will definitely give me more space. Some of the furniture that needs to be moved is heavy so I need some help. But in the meantime, I have been searching out examples of gallery walls that I like. Here are some examples:
|Caitlin McGauley for Tory Burch|
|Mark Hampton watercolor of Albert Hadley's home|
|Gorsuch Catalog Inspired|
|Kate Schelter for One Kings Lane|
|Scott Meacham Wood|
|House of Harper|
|Oh Joy! Studio|
I am still pondering this idea..all my "extra" art framed and un-framed is piled up waiting!
