We painted the walls the same color as the entry - Sherwin Williams Pony Tail, and painted all of the trim and doors SW Pure White. I love a good gallery wall, but I haven't had good success getting them to look right on my own. I found this inspiration pic from Martha Stewart:
And here is my attempt:
We just put it up last night, so I haven't decided if it is a keeper yet. Some of the pics are in table top frames, and aren't adapting well to the wall - no matter how much sticky tac I use. This hallway will also be receiving a lovely treatment of "crown molding", and hopefully removal of those lovely boob lights that are all over the house. (No matter how hard I try, I can't see them as anything else!). I haven't decided if I should use a flush mount chandelier in their place, or change the lighting to recessed can lights. Any thoughts?
