The energetic couple shares a love for meals, wine and entertaining, so we set out to brighten the eating room.

Graced with iconic Seattle views of the waterfront, seaplanes and hillside houses, the eating room connects the house’s cozy living room with the kitchen, from which we drew foodie inspiration for the gallery wall.

When making a gallery wall, it’s a good suggestion to create a stability of natural shapes and sq. corners.

On Lauren’s wall, classic cookbooks, vintage kitchen instruments and metallic shapes like road indicators and ornamental letters complement the framed art and pictures, whereas a wide range of sizes and shapes offers visible curiosity.

When you’ve determined which objects to incorporate, hint their shapes on leftover wrapping paper or butcher paper, after which tape these templates to the wall to information you in putting nails and hangers.

For a remaining contact, embrace a small piece of furnishings on the backside of your gallery wall. A chest or bench anchors the entire scene and makes a stunning spot for a row of glasses or a flower association.
