sneak peek: best of gallery walls

by Amy Azzarito

buying art = fun. bringing art home and trying to figure out where on your walls to put more art = sometimes not so fun. i’ve been totally inspired by these sneak peek homes to reexamine the art on my own walls. i love the displays that combine art with objects. and the thematic displays like nicolette’s cloud wall (below) definitely resonate with me. i’m feeling inspired to dig through my closet, pull out some unframed art and get hanging! –amy a.
