The current issue of Elle Decor featured the Hamptons home of James Huniford. And, while many aspects of this beautifully designed home were of interest to me, I was especially enamoured with this gallery wall he created in a hallway.

As the mom of a 2 year old….I am increasingly the recipient of original “art.” I suspect this will only increase as Maddie enters preschool in the fall. I think the idea of using clipboards to feature a gallery of art is a great idea. Of course, here Huniford displays a collection of watercolors. In my own home, I could see displaying my daughter’s art….enjoying the ability to rotate as she creates new pieces.
I am picturing such a gallery in the mudroom off the kitchen, or perhaps in a playroom. Depending on the location within your home, you could use any number of clipboards as the base of your gallery. Think clear or colored acrylic, a decorative clipboard such as one from this site, or even a vintage clipboard as used in the inspiration photo.
What do you think….would you do this? Any other great ideas for an unconventional gallery wall?
