Our family room is a tricky room to decorate. We have extremely high ceilings with large wall space, and a mammoth fireplace…yes, that’s what it’s actually called! I’ve always been drawn to gallery walls and knew I would most likely create a few around our house.

Right off the bat, we knew the giant wall needed to make a big statement, so I sat patiently waiting for inspiration to hit. I finally decided on three custom built floating shelves to fill the space.

We were thinking of adding personal family photos at first, but then we decided not to. Pictures of loved ones and special moments are better suited for upstairs bedrooms and hallways. Instead, we decided to display our travel pictures and enlarge the ones we really like.

It’s still a work in progress. We have over 5000 photographs and it’s so hard to just choose a few. We’re slowly making headway on filling our shelves with our travel memories. This little corner has become a family favourite and I can’t wait to share more of our travel memorabilia with all of you.

We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to visit so many beautiful places. #Alhamdulillah
