Check out my wall y'all

I have a favorite wall in my house. It's the wall that holds my daughter's artwork. All the years that we've called this place home, my kitchen wall has been our own little art gallery. I painted three rectangles on my wall (three different colors), placed frames on top of the rectangles, and ta da -I ended up with permanent mats! From the beginning, pictures have adorned this space and have been displayed in all their splendor and grandeur! You never know what you might find here... a giant finger-painted butterfly, a floral watercolor, a colorful abstract, or the more refined work of an 8th grade artist (as shown)! This wall has become a wall of memories... when I think back, I can remember gallery worthy pieces that were handmade just for me! Wow! Which brings me to this question...
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE WALL IN YOUR HOME? AND WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?

I don't have a favorite wall in my house, but I sure like yours. First, that idea to paint rectangles and put frames on them is so classy and unique. Secondly, love your daughter's colorful artwork. The blue walls are so soothing and that valence caught my eye very first thing.
