12 Military Gallery Wall Ideas for Your Home

Military inspired bedroom decor

For as long as I can remember, my Nana had a military gallery wall full of my Papa’s Army memorabilia. There were pictures of him flying helicopters, letters of commendation, plaques, awards, etc.

I remember staring at that wall as a little girl, long after he passed away, thinking he looked so handsome in his flight suit and wondering at the bravery it took to fly over the jungles of Vietnam as bullets whizzed by.

Even then, I never dreamed I would marry a man in uniform. It didn’t occur to me that the sound of helicopters whirring would be the music of my daily life.

And just like my Nana, I am so damn proud of my husband. Proud enough to make him a military gallery wall in our home. In fact, we want to decorate our guest room in a military theme.

Here are some ideas I am using as inspiration:

This gallery wall is made up of antique prints and drawings of men in uniform. And while I don’t want a whole wall of this, I would love to mix a few in with the pictures of my husband.
