Gallery Walls and Free Art

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. We had a great time visiting with our friends from D.C. even though little miss was extremely fussy ALL weekend. Her top 2 teeth are coming in and she is an angry dragon these days. Poor munchkin (and mom and dad)! It's back to work now and we have high hopes for full nights of sleep this week.

It's time to talk gallery walls and their popularity amongst designers and the inspired. For the last couple of years we have seen gallery-style art walls in many design publications and across homes. An art wall can reinforce your style and colour scheme whether your space is modern, traditional, eclectic, or beachy.The personality of the room will be magnified. Here are gallery- style art walls working amongst different spaces.

Gallery art walls don't always have to include art alone. In fact, using a variety of art, photographs, decorative paper, fabric, memorabilia and mirrors will make your space more interesting. Also, remember to use what you love.

If you do however want to incorporate art, then why not use free art?! I found Feed Your Soul, a project dedicated to providing free art during these hard economic times. Their goal is to brighten your day and bring a smile to your face. When I browsed their section of free downloads it definitely brought a smile to my face. Check out a couple of the prints that caught my attention.
