This is the photo that started my desire to create my own personal art gallery. This is the check-in desk at the W Hotel in Seattle (at least it was a few years ago). I was transfixed by the juxtaposition of the types and sizes of artwork. While disjointed and different, they seemed to exist in perfect harmony. Since that trip, I’ve been slowly collecting artwork and assorted pieces to hang in my long and narrow hallway. Taking some tips from Apartment Therapy, I’ll be installing my own gallery very soon.

Here are a few other images that have inspired me:
