It only took a year+ of no traveling to finally fill my home with my favorite photos I’ve taken while traveling over the past 10 years. I’ve had the idea for this travel themed gallery wall in my kitchen basically since I moved in, but I was starting to think it may never happen because I was busy decorating (and redecorating…but that’s a story for another day) the rest of my apartment, and because I was SO indecisive about what photos I wanted to fill this travel themed gallery wall with.
Then the pandemic hit and travel halted and I finally got the itch to start actually thinking about what I wanted the wall to look like! My mom came over and we used brown paper to map out the formation (I ended up loving a symmetrical 9 frame gallery), the size of the frames and exactly where it would sit. I lived with it for a few weeks (which turned into a few months) and decided I loved the way it looked. But then I had to decide what color frames I wanted AND what 9 photos out of THOUSANDS I had taken over the years would make the cut!
Just when I thought I decided on the frames and narrowed down the photos, I was second guessing whether I wanted to paint (or wallpaper) the wall before hanging the frames, THEN Framebridge released their Travel Collection of frames and I fell in LOVE with them, particularly the blush pink glazed frame, Paris.
Another few weeks of indecisiveness and I FINALLY decided that I wanted the gallery wall off the kitchen to be made up of classic white frames with white mattes to make the vibrant photos I ended up choosing really stand out. And then I would add a few Paris frames from Framebridge’s new Travel Collection near my desk!
I could not be happier with my decision and I hope you LOVE how it turned out as much as I did! Scroll down for the before & after shots, plus all the details on where each photo was taken, the frame specifics and shots of the pink frames near my desk!
