Gallery walls create a visual reminder of memories and, when curated beautifully, tell an intriguing and cohesive story. Because no two are alike, the groupings are personal and interesting. They serve as a way to position moments, paintings, and sketches together to create a larger work of art. Some of the most striking gallery walls are collected over the years, making them feel deeply Southern, too. And, like most things in the South, their beauty grows with time.
I have a gallery wall of watercolors in the foyer that I have collected over years of travel. Each one evokes questions from my children, presenting the opportunity for me and my husband to share experiences with them. It serves as a wonderful conversation starter! We have another gallery wall in the home that is deeply personal and includes photographs, framed notes, and a watercolor portrait of our first child (our white lab, Emma!). We love sharing stories with guests about the pieces we’ve chosen to display.
At Well + Wonder, I help clients create gallery walls in their homes by grouping their favorite pieces of art and mementos to design a unique collection. It’s the perfect way to pull together pieces that might be overlooked and create a striking, visual impact in a home.

Through the process, we encourage clients to see art as we do – that it evokes memories and feelings, making our homes feel alive and complete.
Here are some of the tips I share with our clients who are looking to begin their own gallery wall. I hope you’ll find them inspiring:
