Collage Wall's Upcoming Makeover

^The collage wall right now. No use changing it until we move soon.

When I moved into my first studio apartment downtown (seen here) and lived all by my lonesome, I came up with a version of this collage wall myself (the 2011 version + Reggie The Horse's intro HERE), and was nothing short of excited about it, really. I think I sent my brother like 50 picture messages of the wall the day I finished and he finally replied with: "I GET IT." I was just so proud!

However, like most things, my taste has changed a little bit and I'm looking forward to tweaking this entire collage wall once we move into a new place (sometime in the coming months). I want larger mattings on the frames, more personal photos and something a bit more streamlined. Though I am still keeping Reggie, of course! I love his stoic little face.

So in the meantime, I'm off on a collage wall inspiration bender, in an effort to find where I can get huge mats for small photos and muted-tone frames for an all-around more cohesive look that says "HEY WORLD! I'M A GROWN-UP!"

Wish me luck with that, especially the part about being seen as a grown-up.

I love my gallery wall. I just throw things up there willy nilly though.

Nice! I made a black & white one last year for my hallway. You can check it out here for possible inspiration: http://www.martinisbikinisblog.com/2014/02/home-decorating-photo-gallery-wall.html

I ended up making my own mats for my gallery wall frames because I got most of them at a second-hand store. I just got some white cardboard, cut it to size, and cut a square/rectangle in the middle. Super simple. Good luck with the adult thing! I need it too haha

I feel you!! I just took all the art off our walls in preparation to move and I'm thinking a bunch of it is going to stay in storage. Tastes change - especially for us since we'll finally be in our OWN HOUSE!
