The black and white photo on the left I won from Mrs. Limestone of the blog Adventures in Decorating a Brooklyn Limestone (she takes the most amazing travel photos which you can buy here). It's was taken during her trip to paris. The necklace in the middle I bought at...Macy's. But I like that it has an ethnic tribal feel. It reminds me of something a Masai Mara tribe member might wear.
These framed butterflies I purchased at a market place while in Panama. I loved the colours - so vibrant.
An ex co-worker brought me back this necklace from Kenya (where she went on assignment). It's made of dried beans.
These photos I took from a travel calendar (see here for my original DIY). They used to hang in the bathroom but when I wallpapered it I decided to move them. Now that they are hanging on this wall I'll be switching them out for black and white photographs.
Originally I only had photographs hanging on the wall. But I was inspired by Maryam of the blog My Marrakesh to add actual pieces (jewelry & other things to come) to the mix. It makes it much more interesting I think. Here's two photos of Maryam's wall.
Now THAT'S a gallery wall! Don't you love it? It just looks interesting...like it tells a story, no? I want to ask about every single piece on her wall. "Who's that?" "Where'd you get that?" "What's that?" "Ooooh, what does that do?" That's exactly the response I want others to have when they look at my wall too. To see more of Maryam's gallery wall click here.
Gallery style walls are quite popular now - do you have one? or planning on doing one?
