As much as I love a good gallery wall, I think it’s sometimes fun to pick a nice accent piece and let it tell its own story. When decorating my apartment for my Apartment Therapy shoot in June, I decided to order a colorful piece from Furbish Studio (shown above–it’s sold out on Furbish’s site now, though), and I love the dimension it added to that little nook. I had originally wanted to place it in a white frame (and it’s in one now), but the frame I wanted didn’t arrive in time for the shoot. I like how the black frame looks with my bar cart, but I’ve moved the print to a new space now (#typical) and it looks better in a white frame where it is now.
Since I’m now considering how I’d like to decorate my future place, I rounded up a few pins and would love to get your input on looks that you like best! I can be so indecisive and love to move stuff around over and over again, but I also don’t want to nail a million holes in the wall. 😉
Image 1: Funny story–this is actually Shannon’s apartment (I LOVE all of her design work!) and I had pinned this image because I absolutely loved the white mirror and how it looked over her bar cart. I had been searching and searching for a similar one when Shannon announced on IG that she was selling the mirror. You can guess who messaged her right away! I picked it up a few days later and it’s now hanging in the bar cart area. It’s a great mirror and the huge size makes it great for #ootd pics (if we’re being honest!).
Image 2: I’ve almost always done gallery walls over my couches, but this large abstract piece is making me want to go simple. This is actually another home that Shannon designed in DC, and I love the elegant, simple look. Who wouldn’t want to come back to this living space after a long day in the office?!
Image 3: I love a good witty piece of artwork, and this black and white photo looks amazing over this couple’s bar cart. I’ve been trying to incorporate more photography into my home and this show-stopping piece is a great find!
Image 4: For a preppier look, see above! This Slim Aarons photograph definitely makes a statement (I’ve gotten a few of his prints recently and love them), and I really like the simplicity of this look–gallery walls are my jam, but there’s nothing wrong with highlighting one really good piece.
Image 5: Last but not least….This abstract face piece is amazing and kind of reminds me of my Furbish print. I love how it’s so dramatic and truly makes you stop and stare!
