Room Overhaul: Gallery Wall

When it comes to my own home, it takes me months (okay maybe years) to make decor decisions. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to put any effort into designing our room since we were renting. However, I have quickly come to realize how important it is for your house to feel like a home. We are working on a few rooms in the house, and our bedroom is one of them.This is just phase 1 one of the overhaul. We started with painting the walls from a dark neutral to a light ivory which immediately poured more light into the space.

Next step: Wall space. I admit, I have stacks of frames looking for art and stacks of photos looking for frames. I have the hardest time pulling a gallery wall together with the right mattes and sizes. Thankfully, I was introduced to Framebridge, and I am pretty sure hours of my life were saved. (No, seriously.) It is a new site that offers one of the easiest most effective ways to frame art, prints, and photos.

I actually really enjoyed the process. I was able to dream up a gallery wall that was a combination of instagram photos, art prints, and digital photos. (You can both mail in the art or digitally upload.) After your artwork is uploaded you can “try on frames” and see how your work looks in each style as well as change up matte color and size. Brilliant right? They even have an option to have the Framebridge team suggest a few frames for your work.

Once you order, the art is custom framed and shipped. I could not get over the quality of these frames. I say this because a few of my larger frames fell of the wall and broke due to poor quality. It was so exciting to actually have a set of frames that accurately reflects the value of the photos and artwork.

You all will have to head over and play around with your instagram photos or trip pics! I am a little hooked;) And BONUS, you can take 15% off your order with code: FRAME15:)

Stay tuned for full bedroom reveal!

Tiny Home Dwellers

As my own family is working on living a simpler lifestyle, I have complete respect for those doing this so well. When I heard about Aurora’s family and the life they have chosen to live in a tiny home on wheels, I asked her to share her story with you. So happy to have her as a guest today…

Since I work from home, I have to have be pretty self disciplined with time management. (A look into our day to day schedule here. Need to update that soon!) I would usually rather take a nap when my little ones are napping, but that is the time I make things happen. Sooo, the next best thing is to make your work space inviting. If it is visually attractive, I don’t mind pulling up a chair and getting to it. This goes without saying it is rarely in perfect order – I’ve got a messy artist mind and lots of busy toddler hands around;) I change up the space often with different photos or artwork, and always a fresh notepad.

I met Jeanette at The Brand Market NYC and found out about her fun shop! So many fun desk du jour goodies to spice up my space. We decided to team up to offer the same goods to one of you! Shop Manhattanite is giving away the following bundle will go to the lucky winner:
