Green living room with a gallery wall, taupe sofa and woven baskets doubling as side tables

If you have been considering adding a collection of photos, drawings, art, paintings or prints onto your wall, there are options for your look.  Either a an organized arrangement of different sized wall art or a very symmetrical no bending the rules version.

Today I bring you two little living rooms...both feel very fall.  Dark greens, browns, rich textures like velvet, suede, cane, patterns ... both feature gallery art walls behind classic sofas.  The wall above is a wonderful mix match of photos, prints and clearly collected items.  The living room below has a more tailored gallery wall with uniform framed botanical prints.

Which do you prefer...?  This or that?

  1. Love both for different reasons.... But if I had to choose I would pick the 1st one as it has a very warm and inviting feel

  2. While both are beautiful I do like the collected look of the first example.

  3. The first one looks like a real home with interesting people living in it. The second, while lovely, looks like the designer filled a wall for a client.

  4. I love the first photo for its willy-nilly arrangement, but the second one's sofa is totally awesome!! That green velvet is simply scrumptious and the globe....I could swoon for days over that globe. So if I had to choose, the 2nd one, but it's a hard decision to make... Thanks for posting these, I've been working on my own gallery wall above the sofa in my living room re-do. I appreciate the great inspiration!

  5. I love the top picture as it is much more pleasing and interesting to the eye.
