Nail the Perfect Gallery Wall

gallery-wall-ideas

Gallery walls are the perfect way to create a focal point in any room. They allow you to use your creativity to find pieces that work cohesively together to create one giant piece of art. They are great for large walls that need a little extra help. Executing your gallery wall can seem a bit daunting, so here are my steps that make it fool proof.

Step One: Find Your Wall and Decide on a Theme
Figure out which wall you want to showcase your gallery. Take notice of the feel of the room, the colors and the design aesthetic. You want your gallery wall to make sense with the design of your room. Use your creative instincts to decide what kind of art would look good in your room. Whether it be all black and white photos for a modern minimalistic look, or a tropical theme like the photo below. Make sure you have a defined theme.

Step Two: Sketch Out Your Wall
No artist skills needed here. Just a blank piece of paper and a pencil will suffice. This process will help you visualize your wall and make it easy when it comes time to finding art. If you already have the art you wish to use, look through each piece and then sketch it out.

Step Three: Find Your Art
When I decided I wanted to create a gallery wall. I found a website called Desenio that sells posters and frames. They have an incredible selection and frames to fit your posters. They make it super easy to create a theme for your wall if you’re finding it difficult to do it alone.

Step Four: Measure and Tape
A partner comes in handy for this step. Use your sketch as a guide and depending on your spacing preference, measure your layout. Mark the measurements with pencil or tape.

Step Five: Hang and Voilà, You’re Done!
This step pretty much defines itself. After hanging your pictures, take a step back and make sure everything is level and to your liking. You can always make adjustments later.

Get Lucy Hale’s Look for Less

Actress Lucy Hale, best known for her role as Aria in the popular tv series Pretty Little Liars, is quite the little fashionista. At just 5 feet 2 inches, she knows how to rock fashion on her tiny frame. I am 5’4, so I look to her to see what pieces work best on a shorter stature. See how you can get her street style for less.

Spring Makeup Wishlist

I felt like this entire winter I have been in a makeup rut. I barley bought any makeup and my day to day looks were minimal to no makeup. Now that it’s March and technically kind of, almost Spring, I am more inspired and excited to get back out in the makeup game and pick up these beauties listed below.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk

CT Matte Revolution lipsticks are one of my favorite formulas. I have the shade Bond Girl and I’ve been wanting to get another. Pillow Talk is the most popular shade so I feel like that’s a perfect next purchase.

Ofra Cosmetics Rodeo Drive Highlighter

Although this highlighter is not new by any means, it’s a cult favorite that has been raved about online for years. I have always wanted to try it but never got around to it. I think this Spring I am finally going to purchase.

Jouer Cosmetics Bouquet D’Amour Six Shade Blush Palette
JOCO0238F_1_L
Jouer is a brand that I have been so intrigued by. I recently bought one of their highlighters and I love it. I have heard amazing things about their blushes and this palette looks perfect for Spring and Summer.

Hourglass Caution™ Extreme Lash Mascara

I am always on the hunt for an amazing mascara. I have tried so many and still only have one absolute favorite. I heard great things about the Hourglass Caution mascara and Hourglass is one of my favorite beauty brands.

BH Cosmetics Brillance Bronzer

2537911

Bronzers are my favorite makeup product, so I am always eager to expand my collection. I find that some of my favorite bronzers are my drugstore or inexpensive ones. BH Cosmetics is an affordable brand and their Brillance Bronzer seems like the exact satin finish that I like.

BECCA x Khloé Kardashian & Malika Haqq Glow Letters
BC_98895_800x800_0
I have to admit that the packaging on the Glow Letters is what first drew me in. A few brands have done these “rock” type highlighters like Physicians Formula and Guerlain. I have never tried anything like this, so all the more I’m curious.

What’s on your Spring makeup wishlist?
