Gallery Wall Collections: Our Furry Friends

I don't know about you but I love when my Ballard Designs catalog comes in the mail. Even though my design aesthetic is a little more eclectic than what Ballard typically offers, I still find items I could mix in my slightly more funky style. 

For instance, I came across this little collection of illustrated dog prints:

So cute! I love how they are all in different frames giving the gallery wall  the look as if they had been collected over time.

Of course, the do-it-yourself-er in me is considering drawing  a few of my own. Some these illustrations have lines that would be pretty simple to sketch up.

I was also reminded of this photo of designer Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors. I love the gallery wall of dog paint by numbers she slowly collected. Also, That daybed cannot be ignored. I believe she had it made. Gorg!

Are you interested in starting your own collection? Just hop on to your virtual surfboard and hit eBay. They have lots to choose from and the best part is they are  affordable. Yes, an afforable art collection. That could be an oxymoron!

We are having a windy day here in the mountains. A little scary!  Hope everyone hangs in there and has a happy Monday!!
