A wall gallery is a wonderful thing to create in a home. It’s very personal and reflects the people who live there. A wall gallery often portrays our favorite things or things that mean something special to us. And a wall gallery does not have to be created all at one time. My view on home galleries is that they are best when they evolve. I love wall galleries, including mine, that are collected and arranged and rearranged over time. In other words… wall galleries look best when carefully curated.
I’m thrilled to be a part of Decor Steal’s Design Ingenuity Challenge. The kind folks at Decor Steals sent me a beautiful wall clock and asked me to use it in my decor. Can you imagine how delighted I was when I saw the Kensington Station Clock?
One of my blogging besties, Kim at Savvy Southern Style also used the clock in her decor. You will want to see her fabulous post! She is so creative!
Here’s a peek at Kim’s post…
I have an “as you go” wall art gallery going up my main stairs. An “as you go” gallery is one that is not necessarily planned, but one that keeps evolving. And when I got this clock I knew the perfect place for it! It was going to become part of the gallery!
Here is how the gallery looked before the clock…
And here is the gallery with the addition of the clock…
I moved things around just a tad and put the vintage-inspired clock where it could be seen easily from the foyer! I think it gives lots of visual weight and a big punch of decor value to the wall!
Here’s my philosophy on moving art around in my gallery and putting more holes in the wall… IT’S JUST A HOLE!!! Holes can easily be patched and touched up OR if you’re lucky the new art will hide the holes! It’s worth moving things around when you find a great piece that needs to be added in… like the Kensington Station Clock!
The clock has that fabulous mix of neutrals and black that I just can’t get enough of… and it has a wonderful vintage, industrial feel!
The clock’s great black metal cage works with the frames in my gallery. When creating a wall gallery it’s important to do something that makes the gallery cohesive and feel like all the elements belong together! One way to do this is to frame everything with one color.
The Kensington Station Clock is a real beauty!!! It brings lots of interest and a little much needed texture to the gallery! And I love how it looks on my stairs!!!! It’s big enough so that it is not hidden! It’s 23 inches round!
