ADD PERSONALITY WITH ART & PHOTOGRAPHY
When selecting art and photography for your home, be sure to choose pieces that speak to you and that you truly love as you will likely see these pieces every day.

Consider how a piece will fit into your home both stylistically AND spatially before investing in art and photography. We typically recommend that going bigger is better, but that isn’t always the case when you’re styling spaces like hallways, bathrooms, and kitchens. Getting the scale right is just as important as selecting what subject matter you’re looking for.

Designer Tip: Consider styling them directly above furniture to really make a space feel complete. We often place large pieces of art or photography above sofas, consoles, and on the wall directly behind dining room tables as a way to tie the entire room together.

BRIGHTEN YOUR SPACE WITH MIRRORS
Mirrors are a great way to open up your room and make it feel bigger than it is. Include them in locations like smaller front entryways to widen the space and give the illusion of additional space.

Hanging a mirror somewhere natural light can be reflected will make your home look brighter by illuminating more of your space.

Consider blurring the line between mirrors and art by hanging uniquely geometric or organic shaped mirrors. They have the ability to bring a new level of visual interest to a space.
Designer Tip: Think about what the mirror will be reflecting when choosing where to hang it. You want to either reflect something you love, or a window that lets lots of light in!

ADDING INTEREST WITH DECOR & WALL HANGINGS
We encourage you to bring out your personality with different types of unique decor and wall hangings that go beyond art, mirrors, and photos.

In large living rooms with an abundance of wall space, we love to hang a blanket or rug on the wall. This immediately adds warmth and texture to a living room and can elevate your design.

Consider decor options like baskets and planters to introduce an organic and natural ambiance to your space. We like to style elements like these in transitional spaces, like hallways and staircases.

Designer Tip: Wall baskets are a great way to decorate with intention, even if you’re decorating a rental property. They are light and easy to move!
