A gallery wall has a way of making a space look collected while giving you a chance to show off your favorite pieces of art. So, you just hang up a bunch of pictures, right? How hard can that be? You’d be surprised. Going into a gallery wall set-up without a plan can result in a lot of holes in your surface and even more weird looks from your mother-in-law on her next visit.. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a plan to get your gallery wall looking magazine worthy with just a little time and effort.

Step One: Assemble all of the things that you want to hang. You can pick a theme, like black and white photos or maybe all of the art you just bought on your trip to Italy. Or you can always just run with your favorite pieces for a fun, mixed look.

Step Two: Lay each object you’re going to hang out on a piece of kraft paper and trace around their frames. Label every shape and cut them out.

Step Three: Grab some painter’s tape and have fun — arrange and rearrange the paper silhouettes on your wall until you get a grouping that’s just right.

Step Four: Hammer time! Now that you’ve got the perfect arrangement, start hanging your pieces and watch your wall take on new life. Whew! No extra holes AND a fabulous new place to showcase your favorite paintings and pictures.

Emmy Fashion for the Home!

Last Sunday we tuned into the 65th annual Emmy Awards and as we expected, the small-screen sirens brought some serious style this year! Although there were several stunners, we managed to narrow it down to three leading ladies. Here we show you how to translate their winning looks into award-winning decor!

Kerry Washington 1. Aidan Gray Pillow O No. 2 Flax 2. Aidan Gray Pillow French Scroll No. 4 Ballet Pink 3. Southport Sage Green Wrought Iron Chandelier 4. Zentique Furniture Medallion Dining Chair Natural Linen 5. Demilune Buffet in Mushroom

Kerry Washington was recently named “World’s Most Stylish Woman” and for good reason! She looked positively radiant in her blush-toned Grecian gown from Marchesa. The breezy chiffon was sprinkled with rose blooms for a look of pure romance. This is a perfect palette to emulate in a boudoir. Think French vintage, a la Zentique Furniture’s Medallion Dining Chair in Natural Linen, and soft hues like ballet pink and washed sage. We love the elegant charm of all things Aiden Gray, and their French Scroll No. 4 Ballet Pink Pillow is key to nailing this look. What would a romantic retreat be without a gorgeous chandelier? Our Southport Sage Green Wrought Iron Chandelier perfectly mimics the floral motif of Kerry’s dress and will be a simply sweet finishing tough in your space.

Black and white will always be a classic combination in both fashion and interiors. So it’s no surprise Julianna Margulies turned to this fool-proof pairing for her big night out. With clean lines and a graphic floral, her dress has given this combo a modern lift! To bring this look home, try furnishings in sleek black lacquered finishes. We love the lines of the Bungalow 5 Jacqui Three Drawer Side Table and the gold pulls pack an extra punch of style. To tie in a graphic element, we recommend the Thomas Paul Zinnia Ebony Cream Tufted Wool Pile Rug. The over-sized print is a polished take on mod 60’s style, which we can never get enough of! Complete your look with a classic geometric print like our COCOCOZY Oxford Black Embroidered Pillow. Remember, whenever in doubt, stick to the basics and give them a little make-over for a fresh, updated look.

She balanced the radiant hue with vintage gold cuffs and kept the rest simple. Take a cue from Allison and try our Worlds Away Emma Navy Dresser. The color is bold enough to make a statement, yet versatile enough to withstand the test of time. Like our muse, there is something regal about the design of Lili Alessandra Onasis Linen Navy Decorative Pillow. Complement your royal space with gold-leafed accents. We are especially taken by the Barclay Butera for Mirror Image Home Madison Mirror who’s Greek key design is the ultimate finishing touch to your design fit for a queen.

Today we’re thrilled to launch our new “Design 101” series! Once a month, we’ll dive into the backstory behind specific furniture styles and show you the best way to use the pieces in your home. You’ll be an interior expert in no time! There’s no better way to start this series than than with a furnishing that’s both versatile and beautiful. Demilune tables (French for “half moon”) are a standby in the design world for their ability to add a touch of personality to even the smallest spaces.

Crafted in a variety of sculptural styles and a half-circle surface, the demilune sits flush against a wall in hallway nooks and staircase landings. In these homes, the tabletop makes the perfect place for displaying floral arrangements, treasured collectibles or a lamp for extra lighting.

First appearing in France in the 18th Century, the demilune table seems to fit anywhere with ease. While designers traditionally place a demilune in entryways, hallways and living rooms, you can think outside the box! We love it in unexpected spaces like a master bedroom or bathroom, where it’s transformed into an elegant vanity when paired with a vintage side chair.

While the term “Industrial Chic” may at first conjure up visions of something mass made and sterile, this trend is anything but, instead focused on items that have a sense of history dating back to the early 1900’s when the industrial age first began. Metal plays a big part of the style with machined iron and steel paired with unfinished wood for a look that is delightfully nostalgic. We’re loving the look of adding one or two key pieces to transitional interiors, giving rooms an injection of the unexpected. Think accent tables or storage shelving that have a functional, chic “old factory” look, or the simple shapes of metal pendant lighting. These cool vintage inspired finds accent interiors with rustic, utilitarian style. Ready to add some personality to your rooms? Check out the latest in Industrial Chic

You’ve helped the kids create their own Easter eggs, now it’s time for mom to break out her mad crafting skills and blow everyone away at Easter brunch with eggs that are both functional (you CAN eat them after all) and decorative. Silhouette eggs nested together make for a charming accent placed at either end of the table, or bring a little sparkle in with glittered sticker eggs. Mark the place of each guest with their own monogrammed egg or jot a personalized message on a chalkboard egg. We’re also loving the idea of keeping little ones occupied during the meal by placing a few pieces of colored chalk tied with raffia beside their egg as a handy “blank canvas” to unleash their creativity on. Decorate, celebrate and eat up!
