I've been playing around with the idea of adding a gallery wall to our dining room to add a little more detail and finish.
I'm focusing on the wall where we installed our antique mantel and had initially played around with a plate wall flanking the mirror. Loved it/hated it/left it up for a few days and then took it down because it just wasn't right.
Really what I wanted was a mirror gallery wall. Remember when I did one at the old house (here). I miss that dining room SO much. Seriously. That was dining perfection to me and I wanted to add a little touch of that vintage inspiration to this home.
That large aqua mirror was the centerpiece in the old gallery wall and I used it as the same here. The remaining mirrors are thrift store finds that I have repainted in shades of mint, cream and white.
I still need to source some smaller mirrors for the sides around the mantel. Yet, another work in process. Which is frustrating, but Darrell keeps reminding me that progress is progress. I just like things done immediately and completely.
I strung a string of wooden beads casually along the length of the mantel to add in another texture and to tie in with other wood I have in the space.
I also added in some gold elements. Because, as much as silvers are popular I can never get enough of brass and gold.
