I adore the space above featuring children's art. I can imagine, as a parent, that there is a constant stream of new creations. I love the idea of choosing a few special pieces to frame properly and hang. Children are so free when they paint and create- there are no limits and it makes them true artists. The gallery wall shown above is a nice take on the idea. I also like the idea of a large scale painting over a mantle. You can even match the color palette of the room by mixing your own paint and limiting the color range offered to your little artist.
I don't have children of my own, but I can imagine that this could potentially be a cherished piece of art for a family.
