Happy Friday-Eve guys! We finally have our gallery wall! I’m excited, but first, I hope everyone is doing well and getting excited for more sunlight and warmer weather! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that the Hubs and I just celebrated one year of marriage. This past year was an interesting one, but it feels so good to pass another milestone with my best friend.
Since moving into a home last year, I’ve been decorating like crazy! It’s true when they say it takes time to make a house a home. After a few months of decorating, I had one thing left on my decor to-do list: a gallery wall. In my last apartment, my sister and I placed our gallery wall in our dining room. We filled it with pictures of our friends and loved ones. I knew that I wanted to replicate something similar in our house. That’s where my friends at Simply Framed come in!
At Simply Framed their complimentary Gallery Wall Concierge Service works with you to create a beautiful custom design that shows off your favorite memories with family and friends. We’ve worked together for a few months to make sure we could display a gallery wall that we loved, unique to our space. The first step was to decide what type of gallery wall we wanted.
Gallery Wall Planning Process
At first, I wanted to do a modern grid-style gallery wall. My husband is a minimalist and I’m…well not. So I originally thought that would be perfect! We played with some designs, looked on Pinterest, and decided to go the abstract route. I’m so happy with our results. I worked with a designer named Stephen who took my inspiration images from Pinterest and created a design that worked perfectly within our space.
After finalizing our design, we chose the pictures that we wanted as well as our frames and mat style. We ended up with the Metal Gallery frames in Matte Black with a single mat style as a cushion to our photos. I decided to choose pictures from our wedding day. We received our frames the week of our anniversary so it ended up being the perfect gift!
Once our frames came in, their quality amazed us. Not only were our pictures crystal clear, but the frames looked amazing. I loved that Simply Framed includes hanging directions and hardware catered to your frame style. I’m proud to say that I hung our gallery wall up by myself! Simply Framed made it easy with their directions (with pictures to help) and care instructions. The installation didn’t take long and now we can beautifully display one of our favorite memories.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the process of creating our abstract gallery wall. From design to delivery, the Simply Framed team was amazing to work with. They were extremely knowledgeable when it came to bringing our vision to life. I’m looking forward to creating more moments like this around our home. I’d love to add frames for close family and eventually our children.
Thank you so much to the team at Simply Framed! We appreciate you working to help us create a gallery wall we love! This will be the first of many because we’re so happy with how it turned out.
