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! 🙋🏻♀️❣️😘
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. 🍁🍂What do you guys think?

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!
