Accessorizing & learning to love snakes!


I am having a ton of fun today designing a client's blank wall with a collage of frames, art and accessories!   

The key to a successful eclectic gallery wall is balancing a variety of sizes and shapes, colors and styles, to create a look that reflects your personality.

One of my favorite sources for unique and original accessories is the fabulous Furbish Studio, just down the road from us in Raleigh NC.  I have yet to step foot in their shop, but covet it from afar via their online shop.  

I've purchased Sarah B Martin's watercolor prints here before and keep coming back for more of her playful themes and pops of color.  Super well priced too, @ $40 unframed.     

Here are her feathers...

Here are her snakes, yes SNAKES!

(because everyone needs a picture of a sweet dog in their home!)

 

Finally, we'll add personal objects and photographs in a variety of frames

I have been using these with flax linen matting from West Elm for years

gallery frames

wood frames

And these ash wood boxed frames which add dimension when hung on the wall


Annnnd my search continues for more great finds...
