The ‘Yacht of our Home’ gets its moment this year with a refreshing makeover! Yup, it’s the fast sailing vessel to a deep slumber in tranquility. We have been working on remodeling our Bedroom and planned to work one thing at a time after our office hour.
Day 1 – Creating a gallery wall
We figured out that the blank wall space is the first thing that needs transformation and creating a gallery wall would be perfect.
If you would like to add coziness and bring a style to your home, then create a gallery wall. Be it, with lovely photographs or a creative artwork, they add personal style and uniqueness to any empty wall space. As you stare at each photograph, it takes a walk down the memory lane.
The best thing is, eventually you could keep it growing and add more pictures!!
Here’s how to create a perfect gallery wall
- Choose the Frame – Choose a classic frame style for a unique look. We chose black and white frames in different sizes. We bought it from here. Always have one or two larger frames to serve as major focal point.
- Determine Layout style – Measure the wall space and then lay out all the frames on the ground & figure out the layout that you love the most. Create a lay-out style along the vertical line going down the centre of the wall, thus making a visual balance.
- Have the photos printed – Make sure to choose photographs that reflect happiness and memories to treasure. It should bring the empty space into light and narrate a story whenever you get to see it. Never choose a family portrait or religious pictures for Bedroom gallery wall. We chose some of the pictures from our post wedding shoot and some from our travel.
- Hang Frames – Cut pieces of paper to trace the size of the frame and tape them on the wall by keeping an even distance of 2 to 3 inches. This will give you a feel of your layout. Always, use a level before nailing the frame. Be cautious to know electrical lines, when you’re nailing.
