Just a few days ago I finally decided to refer to my humble apartment as a cottage . . .
The stone has a cottagey feel. At least I like to think so. My decorating style isn't cottage at all.
I like to call it Eclectic.
Wouldn't you call glass and spurs a bit Eclectic?
My mantle is an extreme in the other direction . . .
It's glossy white. I planned to paint. Someday. It's surrounded by vintage things. My tea cart is next to the vintage ice chest. Below you can see just a corner of an old wooden box.
Now do you agree I am Eclectic?
And so since I am so Electic I thought it be fun to do an Eclectic Gallery wall. I have this huge wall behind my couch that is just itchin' to get covered.
Of course I've gone to pinterest for some ideas . . .
Love this one. Just nice and subtle. Nothing 'out there' kind of understated. I love the console cabinet underneath. Reminds me of my mothers stereo. Dawng I wish I had it. I wondered if its in storage.
Might be. Someday we might all be rich when we get to clean it out. Nah...we'll just be happy vintage collectors!
Here a few more ideas . . .
Now that's what I call Eclectic.
Now this looks like me. But not so much The Cowboy. Love the combination of textures. The white and the rustic wood and then look at the floor cloth. Love the wall! Now that is kinda where I'm headed.
I'd heart a wall of mirrors
And I want a couch with fringe!
I just want this entire stairwell. Love how they turned the corner. I can't help but wonder how tall the
ceiling is. Our stairwell is two stories. And I am just not sure what to do with it. I'm just afraid anything
I hang will look funny with tons of space above. So it stays 'naked' For Now hehe.
I'm drawn to this one mostly because of the lay out and use of shapes of frames. Not so much the
photos or matting. I do like the animal skull included. The Cowboy will be real happy to display some of his trophies.
Well I have some fabulous ideas. I am inspired. Now the next step is to show The Cowboy and send him
off huntin'. Not in the woods this time at our favorite thrift shops. He is a great hunter.
Are you inspired?
Have you already done a gallery wall? I'd love to see yours!
I am linking with some great parties. A complete is below the horse. Visit some great parties!
