Hello, gorgeous humans, and welcome back to my corner of the web. I hope you are in the mood to be inspired . . . because we’re going to be talking all about eclectic gallery walls and some stylish additions you can DIY or buy for them.

When I first tackled my sunroom office makeover, I knew three things:

  1. I wanted plants. Lots of plants.
  2. I was going to create a faux marble desk because I am extra with a capital X.
  3. And there was going to be a big gallery wall set up.

Well, I’m pleased to report that we’re three for three. Plants are literally everywhere, I have a tutorial up for my beautiful marble desk . . . and there’s a beautiful eclectic gallery wall that makes my heart happy.

I mean, just look at it – don’t you think it’s stunning?


One of my favourite things about maximalist decor is that it’s just so creative. I adore being able to look up and have inspiration hit me in the face! But anyways – enough about my gallery wall. You want to know how to create your own, so let’s get into the tips!


Curating a bunch of different art prints and paying for shipping 5 times over, only to potentially have them not work well together, is a ton of hassle. Why not buy a pre-curated set of art prints and save yourself the hassle?

TIP #5 – Don’t Be Afraid To Go Multi-Media

Leading on from that point: when you’re creating an eclectic gallery wall, don’t be afraid to experiment! I have vases, a giant whiteboard and more . . . and I honestly think having all these quirky additions adds a ton of character.

Here are some fun additions to try:
