Of the Moment: Wall Galleries

Gertrude Stein's Paris Apartment, The Grand Palais via HiP Paris Blog
I've long been a lover of art; something about the history surrounding a piece and the aesthetic beauty of it just draws me in. Colors, lines, shapes and abstractions: my sense of being gets swept away in them, only to return stuck in a state of awe. I could spend hours in museums -- I'm sure I spent at least a quarter of my whole time living in Manhattan taking in every inch of every museum gallery that exists there.

Obviously, I will never have an art collection even close to the caliber of a museum or Gertrude Stein, but I can recreate the gallery feel for my own home's walls. And that's just what N and I have done with one wall in our living room. It's a continual work in progress, as I know we'll keep adding new art to the wall or change things out (or *gasp* even expand it to more walls!). I love the "lived-in" feel it adds to our home and that it reflects both mine and N's aesthetics, each personally and together collectively.

I think they're like a huge collage of beautiful things you love! What do you think of wall galleries? Do you have one in your home?
