Oh Cr*p – will my global finds make my home look like a museum or Pier 1 Imports?

Let the fun begin!  We are finally going to have all our world treasures in one location.  My heart loves this, but my head keeps asking if my home will look like a museum or like the showroom at Pier 1 Imports?

I do know I need to make a gallery wall because I have a huge wall that is empty! Yeah. Kevin reminds me to do it well and do it ‘once’ so it is not something he continually has to fix or change. I’ve asked Houzz to help me so I am eager to see what options we might come up with.

I also know many of you guys have already combined your homes with lovely art so if you have any ideas, please let me know. Here are some of the wall things I will be playing with.
