Display Your Family Memories with a Custom Designed Gallery Wall

Photographs are a timeless possession. There are so many important milestones in life from bringing home the new puppy to your youngest heading off to college. Whether it’s a lifetime of memories, or just one special photo session, we can help you design a custom wall gallery to make you smile every day.

If you have empty space on your walls, photo wall galleries are perfect for creating these beautiful displays. At Allison Wilkins Photography (formerly Evin Thayer Studios), we offer services to make your life easier when creating a gallery wall for your photographs. Read on to learn more about gallery walls and how we can make the process of making a gallery wall easier for you.

What is a Custom Designed Gallery Wall?

A gallery wall is the name for a collection of artwork and/or photographs displayed together on a wall. The pieces on a gallery wall can be hung in many ways, from perfectly symmetrically to completely random. Gallery walls are a superb way to add visual interest to a room, and you can customize them to fit any space.

A gallery wall is a beautiful, eye-catching way to personalize your space and tell your unique story. If you are unsure of where a gallery wall can be displayed, we will discuss some options for you in the following section. We also offer complimentary, in-home consultations to help you plan your family wall gallery.

Where To Hang Your Custom Designed Gallery Wall

Gallery walls look great just about anywhere. However, some of the most popular places to put them are above couches and beds, in entryways and hallways, and even in stairwells. But, really, it’s just related to your style and what kind of look you’re looking for. So go ahead and get creative!

  1. Above the Sofa
    One of the more popular locations to hang gallery wall art is above the sofa. This is an excellent option if you have a large wall to work with and want to make a real statement. Everyone who enters your home will eventually make their way to the sofa for relaxation. That’s the perfect spot to show off your lovely photographs and get people talking about all the memories you’ve shared!
  2. In the Entryway
    Another great place to put your gallery wall is in the entryway. You can make an excellent first impression on guests! Often, the entryway can benefit from additional attention to decoration, and a gallery wall can help with that. One can take a more playful and lighthearted approach, and it is an excellent location to display younger family members or even family pets. It’ll make leaving for work much easier if you catch a glimpse of their sweet faces before the day begins!
  3. In the Bedroom
    If you’re searching for a more intimate place to display your gallery wall, try hanging it in the bedroom. This is a superb way to create a cozy and inviting space that feels like your own personal oasis. This is your space, and sometimes you want to cherish your memories in the most private of rooms.
  4. In the Kitchen
    Believe it or not, the kitchen is actually a great place for gallery wall art! This is a great way to add personality to your space. What better way to brighten up a kitchen than photographs of grandkids or funny pictures of cooking together! Since the kitchen is prone to being a high-traffic area, as it is the heart of the home, we work to suggest more durable yet simple-to-clean framing options, such as acrylic or metal.

The Design Process for your Custom Designed Gallery Wall

Regardless of the various approaches that can be taken to build your gallery wall, it is a completely holistic approach to getting the gallery wall custom designed for your home. We achieve this by coming to your home to see the area where we will design the wall gallery. This in-home consultation service is a critical component of our design process as we are able to ask the right questions that are specifically catered to your home, your style, and the location of this gallery wall.

During this initial consultation, we can recommend clothing that will coordinate well with the gallery location in mind. We will provide recommendations and ensure finishes will work for the home’s overall aesthetics and have the gallery wall coordinate seamlessly into the design.

As your design consultant, we feel that the best approach is to take one where we handle all the details. Providing the selection of frames and finishes that will work to produce the best-designed gallery wall specific to your tastes, needs, and space that you have to work with.

Even with that said, there are some photos that cannot be reproduced either due to the location or to those loved ones long gone. Therefore, we work diligently to incorporate any photos that cannot be made by us and that fit with the theme of the gallery wall to make sure these photos are naturally integrated with the gallery wall.

This in-home consultation will leave you with a proper design in mind of what it will look like and help us execute the vision.
