Gallery walls are generally a colorful and eclectic type of decor. On the other hand, the Kardashian style has become popular for its warm minimalist, and modern edge. Kourtney Kardashian shows that the two don't have to be mutually exclusive. Recent photos of the socialite's dining room reveal that she has installed a black and white gallery wall in her contemporary dining room. 

Kourtney's dining room has a full warm minimalist look. Her deep brown hardwood floors compliment her textural beige walls, emphasized by the frosted glass of her oval dining table. On the wall, black and white photographs in similarly sized black frames create an artistic look that fits perfectly with the rest of her decor.

Kourtney Kardashian's modern wall decor is a beautiful and eye-catching addition to her dining room.

Interior designers love the look of a gallery wall. Vivianne Chow, interior decorator and founder of Viv and Tim Home, states: 'Installing a gallery wall in a room allows you to easily fill up an empty wall with curated wall art or photo memories. Keeping frames all the same color helps create a modern monochromatic design.'

Tyler Del Vento, interior designer and founder of TDV adds, 'Gallery walls are a great way to give a room or wall a personality! They can provide warmth, reflect the homeowner's passions and interests, and illicit an emotion.'

Furthermore, the experts say that Kourtney's dining room wall decor colors create a stunning result. 'Black frames provide a lot of contrast to beige walls which really makes the gallery wall pop and stand out as a feature in the room,' says Vivianne. 

Tyler continues, 'I love using black frames against beige or white walls because the contrast "pop" adds a fun edge to the overall look of the gallery wall. Black frames also give a more modern, updated, and sophisticated look vs. wood or metal which can feel casual and dated.'

Kourtney Kardashian's dining room walls prove that a gallery wall can be a stylish and chic addition to any design style by making the classic look so effective in a modern space.
