UncategorizedNursery Gallery Wall March 6, 2015 I love a good gallery wall. When I started designing the nursery, I knew that I wanted to create an art wall to display some sweet and special items. I knew that I wanted to mix different styles and incorporate some vintage pieces I’d been collecting for her. I always start a gallery wall by picking one main piece to anchor it and then build out from there. For this wall, my main inspiration piece was this vintage little girl’s dress (found at a yard sale) hanging from an arrow. I love this sweet dress and initially bought it for a summery photo shoot with me and Rosie. I’ll have to take it down for one 🙂 My absolute favorite part is it hanging on this arrow a dear friend made Rosie out of a stick, some paint, leather, and feathers. I LOVE this arrow. It really adds some boho flair to this room. But the meaning behind it is what really makes it shine. I’ve always loved this verse about children and how we should view parenting. It reminds us of the kingdom purpose of raising babies and I’d considered displaying it somewhere in her room. But without knowing how much I loved this verse, my friend Erin made this arrow and attached that verse to it. I decided it had to be hung in Rosie’s room as a reminder of God’s plan for her. With that as the pretty and meaningful centerpiece, I worked outward with some other favorite finds. I painted this little abstract piece the day before Rosie was born in one last burst of nesting energy. I thought it only fitting to hang this in her nursery as a reminder of the anticipation and excitement I felt when creating it! I found this copper vintage baby shoe at an antique store right after I found out I was pregnant. And the navy lacy piece is an old doilie that was starched and turned into a basket. I found it at a Yard Sale and loved the lacy look and texture for her room. It’s so dainty and feminine. The blue vintage floral came from a thrift store years ago. The “I love you more” art was a sweet gift from my friend Beth from DesignPost Interiors. She’s so thoughtful! And I had to include a belly shot from my maternity shoot. This is my favorite gallery wall I’ve ever done because there is such meaning behind it. The arrow and the vintage baby finds really make this a special room for our little Rosie. I’ll be sharing details on that mobile and the other very special piece of art you see on the adjoining wall very soon!
