Family Photo Wall / Gallery Wall

So I could call this a gallery wall, but it truly is all Family photo’s that I adore. This is the upstairs hall leading to the bedrooms so it’s a family space which allowed me more freedom with the pictures I chose.
We painted the Foyer, up the stairs and the upstairs hall Revere Pewter.
After I painted the walls I decided to paint the main wall black, Benjamin Moore Black Iron specifically, the hall is a good size and the black wall doesn’t make it feel closed in at all. All of the frames I had, I just painted them all black to match. I used 3M removable tape to hang all of the frames but the 3 largest ones.
As you can see we have also painted our handrails and bannister black, I just love our hall transformation, but I especially love seeing all of these photos everyday!

    Did you use Benjamin Moore on your walls? Didn't say what brand for the grey. Also, on the bannister did you use the same black as the one wall? Truly looks so pulled together! I have a similar set up. I think I'm going to do this.

    Why didn't you paint the table. It sort of looks forgotten.

    I think the table has character. Love the dark wall. Very lovely.

    What a beautiful gallery of pictures. Absolutely love the black wall they are displayed on. Using various size and shapes of frames really adds to the look. Thanks for sharing.
