Styling Tips

It’s the age-old question: do you buy art to match a room, or design a room around your art? Most of us fall somewhere in the middle, but buying and styling art can sometimes feel overwhelming. Here are a few tips straight from me, and follow me on Pinterest for ongoing style inspo.

Plan ahead

Know the spaces you’re trying to fill. Keep their measurements in your phone and a tape measure in your car. You never know when you will come across a perfect piece of art, and there’s nothing worse than getting it home only to realize it’s too tall for your mantle.

Budget-friendly framing

To save on custom framing, buy art in standard sizes so you can buy off-the-shelf frames. Here’s a handy reference for standard sizes. (Most of my prints are standard sizes, btw!)

You can’t ever go wrong with classic black frame and a 2” mat. A big mat = chic, elevated. No mat = bold

Gallery Wall tips

A perfect gallery wall always seems effortless. Good planning can get you there. And while there are no rules, here are a few helpful tips:

Pick a lane: find photos of gallery walls you like and determine the common thread. A color story, consistent framing styles, or total eclectic.

Plan it out: lay the pieces out on the floor to arrange them then take a photo. You can also cut out paper templates of each piece to play with the arrangement on the wall.

Have fun: there are no rules. Frame old postcards, matchbooks, napkins, book covers. Anything that is meaningful to you can be a part of the art in your home and a gallery wall is the perfect way to bring them together.
