OK, so I just have to share…. My friend sent me this pic of the gallery wall she did with all of her finds, treasures, and memories! The cool vintage furniture, the accessories, the rugs,..everything. Now if that’s not some serious flea market, junking, thrift store scoring, treasure hunting inspiration I don’t know what is! That’s Mollie Mae on the sofa and Vixey on the floor, her prize possessions… they were found and rescued too!!
She is an expert thrift-er and you can follow her on Instagram, she always has fun things for sale! @thethriftydarlin
So all my DIY friends…If you want to create your own gallery wall just do it! Don’t try to lay everything out and match each side or make a template…. just start hanging! A gallery wall should be as unique as you are! Mix it up with memories, mementos and all your fabulous finds! If you only have a few items hang them up and then start searching, you will fill your wall up in no time! See you at the next flea market!
Wow, what inspiration to start your Fall decorating… It’s no secret that Fall is my favorite time of year! I have always thought it was because I like cooler weather and seasons with colorful landscapes. Its like mother nature just turns up the color in Fall. It is also because Fall is the start of all things cozy, warm and fuzzy. Everyone seems to gather more around the holidays and find more reasons to spend time together. Its apple picking, pumpkin patches, football, haunted houses, baking, Christmas decor, favorite holiday movies, fun drinks and cozy spaces.
In my world of design, crafting and DIY projects this is when we turn it up for the next four months. As if I wasn’t already working on enough projects! At my house there is lots of decorating and much more baking. I start my end of year decorating plan in August and have all my Halloween decor up before Labor Day with the exception of my front door wreath which I keep on the inside of my front door until the day after Labor Day, so the neighbors don’t think I’m crazy. This year I have already made 2 pumpkin pies and I can’t wait to watch Hocus Pocus.
Yes, I am obsessed with wood beams and their beauty. I also like my modern farmhouse with a little less modern but there is a fine line with doing farmhouse style to keep it current. This brings me to my texture rule…. Too much wood and texture seems outdated. But just add a touch of modern and you can pull it off. balance to pull it off. In this case obviously the wood features take center stage and the accessories pull off the balance factor. This is the perfect style if you like a rustic feel without a lot of clutter.
