Miley Cyrus is known for powerful and versatile singing voice, as well as her talent as a performer. Her Disney to pop sensation to rock and roll star trajectory is seriously impressive.

Everyone is currently talking about Miley's new release, I Used to Be Young, but did you know she's also the queen of living room wall ideas?

Miley revealed her living room walls in an Instagram post, and we're obsessed with the Wrecking Ball artist's deconstructed gallery wall.

The photo shows Miley posing goofily on a boucle armchair with sister Noah Cyrus and sister Tish Cyrus. Framed photographs and paintings cover each wall of Miley's open-concept living room. In this type of design, Miley Cyrus's gallery wall is not merely an accent wall idea. Instead, the gallery spreads across all of the walls, creating a cohesive story.

Interior designers love that the 'deconstructed gallery wall' helps create visual interest in a room. 'This approach to gallery display allows for an enriched sensory experience in a space,' states Julio Arco, experienced interior designer and architect at Bark and Chase

He holds a degree in Architecture from ITESM and a Master’s degree in Urban Design and Housing from McGill University. He is also a member of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).  

He continues, 'Dispersing framed photos or paintings across various spaces in a room encourages movement and flow, drawing the viewer's attention from one piece to another. This rhythm created by the placement and repetition of art pieces can stimulate visual interest and create a coherent narrative throughout the room.' 

Simran Kaur, interior designer and founder of Room You Love adds that 'having a "deconstructed gallery wall" at home means wherever you look, there is art. Unlike popular contemporary interiors, a deconstructed gallery wall doesn't create just one special corner in the room. With it, every corner is special, artsy, and nostalgic.'She continues 'Needless to say, it adds quite a creative and laid-back vibe to the space.'

The experts also love that this gallery wall idea allows Miley to show off various aspects of how she wants the world to view her.  'The concept of a deconstructed gallery wall is an excellent avenue for homeowners to exhibit their unique personalities,' says interior designer and architect Julio Arco.

'By displaying a curated collection of artworks in such an innovative manner, homeowners have the opportunity to create a personal narrative, showcasing their journey, experiences, and passions. The layout and chosen pieces become an
expressive canvas that tells a story about the homeowner, making the space
not only aesthetically pleasing but also deeply personal,' he adds.

Designer Simran Kaur states, 'Since a deconstructed gallery wall doesn't construct boundaries around a limited number of pieces that you can display, a homeowner is privileged to show off any and every aspect of his personality in his room.' This effect is certainly clear in Miley Cyrus's home where the gallery wall includes photographs of musicians she admires alongside landscape paintings.

'If executed thoughtfully and informed by the principles of evidence-based design, it can transform a home into a personal sanctuary that tells a story and resonates deeply with its inhabitants,' Julio finishes.
