decorating Q: gallery wall | Somewhere in Middle America

I wrote about my living room’s naked walls a couple of weeks ago over on Elizabeth Anne Designs Living and have been pondering what to hang ever since.

I’ve always loved the idea of a gallery wall but could never decide where one might go in my house. Then, while scrolling through Design*Sponge’s round-up of gallery walls, it hit me — how about over my couch? It couldn’t be an expansive gallery wall, but it may be more interesting than simply hanging a larger print in the space between the two windows.

(And yes, I’m still considering hanging picture rails on the outside of the windows, but I’m having a hard time making a commitment. Dark wood or metal?)

What do you think, design-savvy readers? Would it work, or do you think it would be too much going on in such a small space/on one wall?
