Gallery Wall: Hollywood Glam

About this series:

Gallery wall can be a scary combination of words. There's stress around selecting the right pieces: coordinating the themes, colors, sizes. There's stress around framing: all the same frame or a variety and to mat or not to mat. And of course, the worst part, putting those nails in the wall to actually hang. If your layout isn't pre-planned you could end up with holes you didn't want. Have I thoroughly stressed you out? 

Finding great art online is a fun hobby for me; I could browse instagram accounts and shops for hours looking at all styles, mediums, and collections. While some designers have very specific taste in art, I think every piece of art could be used somewhere, it just needs the right setting. What I love about gallery walls is how it gives the home owner a chance to show their personality and style. This series, which I'll share throughout the year, will hone in on a decor style and find images that would look great in a room together. My hope is to inspire you to seek new sources and curate a style that uniquely reflects your personality. Have a style you want me to focus on next? Be sure to drop it in the comments below. Also, check out my insta-stories where I'll occasionally use a poll to curate my next post.

This Hollywood Glam vibe features a stunning, tufted sofa in a lovely dusty blue shade with thin gold legs. Not quite mid-century, not quite a chesterfield, this sofa is the perfect choice for a Hollywood Glam room. The gold legs encouraged a warmth in the art work and a art deco flare. For this room, go for brass and black frames - simple in profile to let the artwork shine. bring in shades of white to keep it light, and shades of blue to compliment the sofa. This large marble piece sets the tones and anchors the collection. Balance the other pieces by considering the main color in the image and dispersing them around the center piece.
