HOME DECOR: GALLERY WALL

This weekend I decided to get off of my behind and put together a gallery wall in my closet/office space. I will be filming a room tour soon which should be exciting! I wanted a gallery wall for multiple reasons: I wanted to put up images that inspire me to either work harder, dream about, and be centered around images I love. Also, the gallery wall would be a setup and background to film most of my YouTube videos on. This could be an ever changing background option for anyone interested in creating one and is such a minimal cost. I printed all of these images from my computer and found them on Pinterest. I tried to go with a cohesive black and white theme. I found these frames either at IKEA or the dollar store which was extremely inexpensive but gives off such a high-end look. I’m so glad I put this together. Here was the process that I took to create my gallery wall:

1. Find images that you want to create a gallery with and pick a theme, you could choose family photos within the same color scheme, black and white photos, or random images that inspire you but keep the color scheme in a similar range.

2. Purchase eclectic frames with different sizes or designs.

3. Print your selection of images with the frame sizes in mind.

4. Lay out your frames on the floor.5. Cut white pieces of paper to match the size of your frame and tape them to the wall according to the placement you laid them out onto the floor. Measure everything out!!
6. Start hammering nails into your wall where you set up your pieces of paper. Make sure you center your nails correctly and you have enough space between your frames.

7. Hang your frames with their prints.

8. Now stand back admire and adjust your frames if they are crooked. That’s it!

For those of you that are looking for a quick and easy solution check out these gallery wall options:

PIN THAT THURSDAY: SUCCULENTS

Bringing succulents indoors can be a great way to add some life into your apartment or home. Having greenery in our space can brighten it up. Recently I’ve become a sucker for the look of them and can’t wait to add some to my apartment. You can put them in coffee mugs or teacups that you may have stored away in cabinets and even cute bowls and glass vases.

Some succulents that I love the look of are cacti, aloe vera, and echeveria. They do require about 6 hours of sunlight but its the perfect season to pot a few of these around your place. I know this seems like a strange topic for my blog but plants can be a lovely addition to your home decor.

PIN THAT THURSDAY: MINIMALISTIC

For months I have been starring at my closet uninspired, I used to split it as an office/closet but moved my desk to my bedroom. I honestly regret that because I feel like I’m getting less work done. It is important to keep your work space and sleep space very separate. Its difficult living in NYC when we have small apartments and have to remain as minimal as possible.

I’m going off on a tangent here but my main focus on todays post is to remind you that spring has arrived and its that time of year that we clean out our closets and homes and start off fresh. I like to do this a few times a year but over the next few months I want to completely rearrange my closet and only hold onto pieces that I actually wear. I find that I hold onto some items of clothing because it has good memories but that shouldn’t  be a reason to keep them because it can seriously become a hoarding situation. Can’t wait to clear it out and show you the final look.

What are your thoughts on closet clean-outs? Let me know in the comments below.

My apologies for lack of ‘wknd recap’ and outfit posts. I have a few looks to shoot, some YouTube videos, and also an event filled weekend. Be back soon!
