THE PERFECT GALLERY WALL

I love the idea of creating a galley wall in your home or office, it's a great way to show off your personal style and artistic taste. Mixing various art styles with prints with paintings, and family photos, magazine covers,  with black & white photography, as well a sepia hued photos, framed and unframed pieces are great to, a mixture of frame styles and even textured frames. Enjoy and Be Inspired!




 My favorite gallery walls are those that incorporate different shapes, various styles of art, they combine colors and black & white; a sort of creative mix match of if you will, mixing photographs, paintings, graphic design, etc. Why limit yourself to just one piece of art especially when you could have a whole wall full of art?

I threw down everything,
And ran into the open world
To sing what I could sing...

WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY

 This ad campaign for Louis Vuittion has me daydreaming of turquoise waters, clear blue skies and traveling in luxury. That image above is everything. Visit here to explore. Where will your journey take you? Enjoy and Be Inspired!





 I love these vintage inspired pieces, reminds of movies like Agatha Christie's " Death on the Nile or Evil Under the Sun" ( I am a fan of the Monsieur Poirot movies with Peter Ustinov) where everyone dressed up to traveled, the destinations were exotic and far away, and luxury was the norm.
