TV Gallery Walls

I see all kinds of gallery walls all over blogland and especially around TV's.  With my new arrangement in the family room, I need to do something on the wall around the TV, and a gallery wall would be just the trick.  Now to figure out what kind of gallery wall I want is a whole 'nother story.  Here are a few that I found on pinterest that caught my eye.

This one is simple and doesn't create a busy look, I think this is what my wall needs.  Simple and nothing busy.

I love these black and white drawings.

These are all fabulous and perfect for the rooms they are in.  I don't want my small room to look crowded, so I think my gallery needs to be something that enhances the space but fairly non-descript. 
To refresh your memory, this is the space it will be going in. 

I'm thinking something simple, I really don't want it to compete with my horse painting.
 Any suggestions?

  1. The first thing that popped into my mind was a grouping of picture frames in various sizes - just the frames without anything inside. It would create a gallery but wouldn't distract from your beautiful horse picture. Just an idea, I am sure you will get many wonderful ideas.

  2. Here is a link to what I did with a gallery wall around my TV a while back.

  4. I love the black and white and would look great in your living room.

  5. I like the first photo, with mostly black and white. It kinda plays off the blank and white of the TV. I thought it incorporated the tv as part of the grouping, the best. I think that would look great in your room too!

  6. Love all the gallery walls you shared! One thing that stood out to me was the large white mattes most of the pics had. I am sure your wall will look great and I can't wait to see what you decide. also, love the new chandelier you chose :). Have a great week!

  7. I really like the first and the last examples. They are simply done yet lovely. And they seem to compliment your decorating style.

  8. Um, off topic here, but wonder if you could switch out or paint that TV cabinet, to something in mid-tone range. The combo of the black screen and the black cabinet really drags your eye completely to that 'black hole' on that wall. Anything you do around that area will also be swallowed by it. Such a light and bright room---maybe a tawny brown or gray about the tone depth of the chair or a bit lighter. Just a thought, and you certainly want your sofa and horse painting to take center stage. Sandi

    1. I hadn't thought abut that. That is a thought.

    2. I agree especially if you go with black frames.Than the black part of the room becomes the focal point, and not the horse painting or sofa. I like the idea of empty picture frames in different sizes or even the same size, but variation of colors.

  9. I like the idea of empty frames mentioned earlier... or other architectural pieces like shutters or corbels, etc.

    Also... have you thought about botanicals, just greens on cream paper with light frames similar to your wicker chair or the tans in your room?

    Here's an example - not a gallery wall exactly and the pictures are a bit large but something similar? http://www.hgtv.com/shows/fixer-upper/things-every-fixer-upper-house-must-have-pictures

  10. I like the same size frames with the black and white pictures. Good luck on your wall. I am sure you will do something great. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

  11. My comment was lost. Personally, I wouldn't do anything. You have so much light in your house and your room look so pretty just being light and bright. You have enough going on in that room and it looks nice the way it is. A gallery wall would be too busy in my opinion. I think if I were going to focus my dollars, I would get rid of the dark blinds first and then get a larger TV before I would worry about a gallery wall. Good luck.

  13. Marty, gorgeous photos you chose! I think symmetrical or asymmetrical will look great on your wal. Something with horses sketches would look great.
