Who doesn’t love a well put together gallery wall?
I love gallery walls in living areas or hallways, but I think they bring an unexpected sophistication to kids rooms. I am still plodding along in my girls room, and I am really liking the idea of adding art and whimsy and interest to their room by putting together a gallery wall above their beds.
Of course, they are not just for girls. Boys can rock some gallery walls, too! There are also some terrific gender neutral looks in here for you “non-finder-outers” or those with a boy and a girl sharing a room.
You definitely want to make sure when putting together a gallery wall for a child’s room that you keep it light enough to draw their imagination (frame some of their art! maybe throw in some of those cardboard animal heads??) and fun enough to suit a young one’s heart (like this??). But I still think you should mix some items of age or artistry (like Picasso’s black and white drawings or a vintage painting or two), something to elicit a pause, some contemplation, some appreciation of things old and beautiful.
What do you think of gallery walls in kids rooms? Love it? Or leave this type of display to the grownups?
