DESIGN CHAT:: KID ART GALLERY WALLS

HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR BUDDING ARTISTS' MASTERPIECS

As parents, we all think our children's artwork is amazing and has the potential of being world famous some day.  We are bombarded with handprints, scribbles, sweet holiday sentiments, and everything in between.  We love our children and their budding talents but what can we do with ALL the art that is sent home?  My answer is... MAKE A GALLERY WALL!!  Gallery walls are fun, sentimental, and a great way to have your children get involved in personalizing your home.  

Lisa Gilmore Design has recently installed two family homes incorporating kid art gallery walls.

We changed up the frames with this design.  We chose mixed metals, white, and black frames to highlight the children's art.  We added some structural, non-kid design elements to break up the wall a bit.  The art is hung in a balanced yet, whimsical way.

For this project, we hugged a corner and varied the size of frames and artwork size significantly.  The bright colors of this growing Picasso flows into the bold, chicness of the home's design. 

To add a kid art gallery wall in your home, please remember these few tips: keep it fun & creative, leave room for additions, and be prepared to feel random sentimentality when you look on your wall. 

Happy Hanging!
