In some rooms it just makes sense to have a piece of furniture angled in the corner. That's the case with my sister's living room. That's just the layout that works best for them, but the walls around it were always puzzling. Do you put something on just one wall? both walls? She has had several things there over the past few years and recently added this gallery wall.
I thought it was a great start, but things were looking a little out of balance so she enlisted my help. She hunted down some frames from around the house and we got to work.
There was really no method to the madness, I just started laying things out on the floor to get a feel for how they would look. I wanted it to be fairly symmetrical with the ends tapering off. This is what I came up with. It fills up that wall so much better and it no longer feels like an awkward space. Mission accomplished.
It doesn't hurt that my sister is a fabulous photographer and has lots of photos of her adorable kiddos to fill up the frames. :)
