Vintage Gallery Wall

My gallery wall is continually evolving and getting filled in with decorative elements as I see fit. As it is becoming fuller, I must be even more selective with what I add to make this wall well balanced and aesthetically pleasing. Recently, I added the brass birds (top center) to give this gallery wall some movement and contribute an organic element, bringing more life to this gallery and breaking away from the linearity a bit. I also added the botanical art to the far right, also contributing to an organic feel.
The botanical art was purchased from an IG account I discovered recently based in Scotland. I fell in love with this product because it is very customized. What they do is gather the names and birthdate of members of your family and create a botanical art with flowers representing the birth date of each family member. At the very bottom it highlights the family name and when it was established. Such a sweet and sentimental idea. I am also sharing it because it makes a great gift for the holidays. It arrived very quickly too! @summerlanest (Not an ad) Enjoy and have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈβ£οΈπŸ˜˜


Fall Dining Table Ensemble Inspiration

Creating an entire dining ensemble has it’s challenges. But it isn’t too bad if you get creative utilizing what you already have or maybe adding just a little more to tie it all together.
When I began to put this fall ensemble together, we had the tablecloth, the ivory plates and the napkins.
Although I do love the paisley patterns on this fall tablecloth, I wanted to break up the tabletop decor from the tablecloth by using a solid runner. This will separate the two and give each feature the individual attention it deserves. The charger plates were a simple and practical additon to blend with the runner and highlight the plates. I opted for orange as opposed to white napkins to further add to the contrast from the plates and keep the ensemble feeling festive. Last but definitely not least, I picked up white pumpkins and variegated ivory for a natural cooling effect to this rich and warm ensemble. Thus, balancing this arrangement and making it aesthetically pleasing to my eyes. πŸπŸ‚What do you guys think?

How to Mount Plates or Trays on Walls

Hi everyone! I always feel that I have so much to share but not enough time to do it as often as I would like. Well, I finally got a little free time this afternoon so there is a video up about how to hang up plates and other decorative trays without the need for the common mounting hardware.

I purchased a few of these chair plates at a furniture exhibit at the Getty museum years ago. I own a chair similar to one on the upper plate so I was drawn to it. I wanted to hang them up seamlessly without the wire frame. So, I came up with this method using accessible tools and scrap fabric laying around. Since, I have been able to put all types of plates and trays up like you see on my vintage gallery wall. I was addicted and I know you will love it too. Enjoy!
