When we moved into this house, I knew I wanted a collected staircase gallery wall. I also knew it would take time to curate enough meaningful art to fill this large wall. I started with this arrangement, but after living with it for two years, it felt too matchy and colorless. So, I gathered up all the art in my home and chose these pieces for a more collected and colorful aesthetic. We have big plans for this staircase, and that will probably mean yet another iteration of this gallery wall, but for now (and the foreseeable future), I’m thrilled with how this arrangement turned out.
I’m sharing the sources of my staircase gallery wall art in this post, but since so many are either no longer available or one-of-a-kind, I’ve also rounded up my favorite affordable art that would make a beautiful, collected gallery wall. Click through to the bottom to see my art roundup.
The black brushstroke watercolor print is the only piece from the original gallery wall…I just love this piece so much! Underneath it, I hung an original, antique oil painting that used to be in our shared office. To the left of those two pieces, I hung a combination of a pastoral printable (here’s a similar one) and a large windmill print from Minted.
The final two pieces of artwork I included in this collected staircase gallery wall are a signed pencil sketch tree print (no longer available) and a painting I created a few years ago as an homage to the citrus trees on our property. I also framed that piece myself for a primitive, yet modern look…framing tutorial can be found here.
The frames I used were a combination of custom, pre-made, and vintage/repurposed. Framing can bust a budget, so using the high-low concept is imperative to keeping your gallery wall cost effective. If you’re looking to have any of your gallery wall pieces professionally framed, I highly recommend using the Hobby Lobby framing department.
Okay, on to my favorite, affordable picks for a collected gallery wall. While I am partial to originals and signed prints, I realize how pricey those can be, especially when you need multiple pieces. So, I included a combination of printable art, originals, and high quality, signed prints.
Well, that covers all the details of my collected staircase gallery wall. I love the way this looks so much more than my first arrangement, and I’m so happy I finally pulled the trigger to change things up. What do you think of my new gallery wall? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
