Flavors To Follow – Picture Walls

As you know, things have been SUPER BUSY around here! Both Marv’s parents and my parents have flown in to help us pack and move and unpack these past few weeks and I can finally say that we’re ALL MOVED IN to the new place! Well, the unpacking isn’t finished but our goal it to unpack at least a box a day until we’re done… we’re not in any real rush though, unless there’s something we absolutely need to use and then we’ll need to unpack the box it’s in. But one of the joys of moving into a new house is making the house into a HOME~! So far we’ve only been living there for a week but it almost still feels like a vacation home or something since not all the rooms are filled w/ furniture and we don’t have any pictures on the walls. And while packing, we realized that we had SO many pictures that were never hung up in our old home due to lack of space that I’m determined to get all the pictures up in our new place. So I’ve been brainstorming about some clever ways to get all the pictures up and I think a wall full of pictures is the perfect cure. Marv might need a little convincing though so I’m hoping this post will help sway him to let me fill a wall up with pictures!

    I love your flavors to follow and I love that last one. Black and white is always a keeper.

  2. August 25, 2011 / 6:44 pm

    YES! We have one in the nursery and I love it. I’ll definitely be looking for another wall in our house to do the same thing on 🙂

  3. August 25, 2011 / 7:10 pm

    YES! Definitely do the picture wall!!

  4. August 25, 2011 / 7:16 pm

    I have multiple picture walls in my home! So I’m obviously for you doing one…or two!!

  5. August 25, 2011 / 9:08 pm

    pinterest = constant eye candy!!! i saw the 2nd wall yesterday and fell for it. really, i’d take any!

  6. August 25, 2011 / 9:12 pm

    We recently moved too and I’m having the same problem… All my walls are still bare and I’m having a hard time deciding how I want to decorate everything. I’d love to do at least one picture wall though. But where to do it… 🙂

  7. August 25, 2011 / 9:44 pm

    The good thing about moving is that you get to start brand new with decorating! The colored frames are so cool .Pinning that!

  8. August 25, 2011 / 11:07 pm

    dooo it sandy! I need to do it for our new house. i had it in our apartment but then split up the photos everywhere around our new house & am still trying to decide if I want to recreate it again.

  9. August 25, 2011 / 11:15 pm

    Yes!!! You will love it! Much more impact than a few scattered around.

    I’m so happy you are moved in – now the fun of making it all your space. Congrats, Sandy! xoxo

  10. August 26, 2011 / 1:13 am

    Congrats on making a successful move to your new digs! And yes, you should definitely do a picture wall 🙂

  11. August 26, 2011 / 6:59 am

    These are fun spaces!! We’re in the house hunting process and I’m so excited for all this decorating that awaits 🙂

  12. August 26, 2011 / 7:25 am

    I love the look of the second space. The differently-shaped frames are just adorable! 🙂

  13. August 26, 2011 / 8:00 am

    Um YES! Of course!

  14. August 26, 2011 / 8:12 am

    Love gallery walls and Love Pinterest! I have a board just for gallery walls. Lol I have 4 spots in my house I want to do it…starting first in the dining area wall. 🙂

  15. August 26, 2011 / 8:29 am

    totally love picture walls! i try to create them but at the same time i’m too lazy to measure to make sure it’s perfect. haha.

  16. August 26, 2011 / 9:11 am

    oooooh!!! I adore all these photo ideas!!!! My grandparents {whos house my mum + I live in} don’t really have that type of style, so my mum and I have photos clusters like these on our walls in our rooms. But if my mum and I ever get our own house I really want to do something like this in the living/ family room!!! How neat!!
    If you decide to do somethings like this, be sure to share photos Sandy darling!!!

  17. August 26, 2011 / 9:44 am

    I’m doing this in my new bedroom!! I’m forgoing the headboard on my bead and instead making one out of frames and photos 🙂

  18. August 26, 2011 / 10:02 am

    Love these photos…I love frames 🙂 Hooray for winning!

  19. August 26, 2011 / 10:36 am

    I have a picture wall in my home. actually all the homes that we have owned I have done a picture wall. I love them!

  20. August 26, 2011 / 11:02 am

    that third one is so cute! i remember doing something similar to that when i was younger with pictures and my mom freaked out because there was tape on the wall….LOL. things are so much more creatively free now.


  21. August 26, 2011 / 11:38 am

    definitely yes, but save some space, you’re going to have PLENTY more pics when your baby is born!

  22. August 26, 2011 / 2:40 pm

    a B&W picture wall is going up in my future house; if only I could decide on a place. going up the stairs? in our kids room {with pics of them growing up? ahhh, too many choices for such an awesome idea!

  23. August 26, 2011 / 3:21 pm

    Yes, you definitely should! I love all the ideas that you posted, now I might need another picture wall in my house 🙂 Can you have too many picture walls? Hope not!

  24. August 26, 2011 / 5:54 pm

  25. August 26, 2011 / 6:38 pm

    YES! I really want a polaroid wall. It’s such a great piece to have, especially when guests come over!

  26. August 26, 2011 / 9:15 pm

    I love this idea! Maybe this inspiration will help me take more pictures (other than outfit shots)! I hope your hubby gets on the ball–I think this is a great idea!

  27. August 27, 2011 / 7:28 am

  30. August 27, 2011 / 3:52 pm

    Oh, I say YES. Definitely go with some picture clusters! I absolutely love the last one!

  31. August 28, 2011 / 6:25 am
