5 Ways to Create a Wall Art Gallery

You’ve picked out the perfect furniture and even found a few accent pieces to bring it all together, but something’s still missing. Your eyes look up, and you see it: an empty wall, begging for artwork. You know you should fill the space, but you might be wondering where to begin when creating your own gallery wall. At Wisteria, we believe the best place to start is with inspiration. Here are five design ideas to spark your creativity.

1. Hang High with Frames Flush

One gallery wall trick to make a space feel taller is to hang your wall art a little higher than eye level. It draws the gaze up, giving the illusion of higher ceilings. And for a contemporary design element, let frames sit flush against one another. A collection of four matching pieces works well for this.

TIP: Choose vertical pieces with similar colors that are part of the same collection.

2. Scatter on a Coffered Wall

Art doesn’t have to hang on flat walls anymore. A new trend we love is incorporating a coffered wall or even bookcases or built-in cabinetry as the backdrop to your wall art gallery.

TIP: Scatter pieces of various sizes and subjects at different heights, but keep things in harmony with a matching color palette.

3. Curate a Mix of Themes & Sizes

Tell your guests a little about yourself with an assortment of pieces featured as a collection. The goal here is to take what inspires you and display it for all to see.

TIP: Mix subjects, orientation (vertical and horizontal), and mediums, while balancing the look with matching frames or by sticking to one color palette.

4. Add Dimension with a Mirror

If you like a more minimalistic look, a monochromatic collection of the same subject and medium is cool and contemporary for your wall art gallery. Make sure, however, to bring in some dimension. An easy way to achieve this is a split grouping with a mirror in the middle.

TIP: Hang pieces symmetrically for a clean design. Also, remember your monochromatic theme when choosing a mirror – this ensures the mirror is part of the ensemble.

5. Choose Neutrals for Large Spaces

To cover an especially large wall space, you’ll need quite a few pieces. To prevent overwhelming the eye, choose a collection with the same subject matter in neutral colors. This allows you to sufficiently adorn the space without being too obtrusive.

TIP: Arrange these pieces in a grid or symmetrically to keep the collection understated and allow other design elements nearby to stand out.

How-To: Make the Most of Small Living Spaces

What if we told you that you can make your apartment or dorm space look twice as big? There's an art to finding pieces that can transform a small living space into an area that feels double the size. The key is knowing what type of products to include and how to include them.

Deck Out Your Desk

A desk serves an array of purposes in college. It’s where you eat dinner, watch Netflix, put on your makeup and even where you fall asleep after studying into the wee hours of the night. Desks somehow always manage to take up space and appear bulky in small rooms. Choose an Acrylic desk to fix this problem! Their lucite qualities blend into your room seamlessly.

Utilize Multipurpose Pieces

It’s important to make the most of your space when you’re living in a dorm or apartment, therefore, having versatile furniture is vital. Think about breaking up space and putting a console table in your room. You can place a stylish lamp, decorative accessories, or even a television on the top of the console while utilizing the drawers below for storage. You can choose a sleek, modern look or a more classic, wooden approach, to add style to your room.

Choose Sleek Storage

Having trouble keeping things neat and orderly in your small space? Add in a side table with storage capabilities to help with preventing clutter. Our designers recommend hiding things away in the drawers, displaying accessories on the shelves, and using the top surface for a lamp.

Reflect on Mirrors

By creating an illusion of larger space, mirrors are magical additions to a room. Add a mirror to an entryway, or an empty wall above your couch or a seating area to create more depth in the place. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes, so use a mirror as a way to express the style you'd like to achieve for any given room.

4 Ways To Personalize Your Space

In every living space, whether it be a house, apartment, or dorm, it is important to add accessories that radiate your personality. These personal touches can make your living space unique and allow for additional self-expression on top of your own personal interior design.

Monogrammed Pillows

Monogrammed pillows are always an easy, great “go-to” when it comes to personalizing your space. With a variety of sizes, patterns, and colors, the personalizing possibilities are endless. Our designers recommend adding in a few vibrant monogrammed pillows to brighten up your bedroom, living room, or even just simply adding one to your desk chair.

Colorful Throws

Adding a few extra throws in a woven basket or draped across a couch can add a soft, personal touch that feels like home. Plus, when you add in vibrant colored throws, you achieve a brighter room with pops of color or patterns that are easily interchangeable. (We know your guests will also love to have the option of curling up with a cozy throw next time they’re visiting!)

Wall Art

Art truly radiates your personal touch. By adding wall art, your space will come alive and express your style. You can choose from an assortment of genres from a vibrant, abstract painting to a beautifully crafted sketch. Our designers recommend selecting a style that personally resonates with you and tells a story. (We love including decorative pieces that serve as conversation starters!)

Decorative Accessories

To personalize any small space, decorative accessories provide subtle, yet heartwarming, personal touches throughout your home. From picture frames to petite pots with succulents, to jewelry stands for displaying your favorite pieces, there are so many stylish accessories that help personalize your space.

5 Must-Have Products To Organize Your Space

Summer break comes and goes in a blink of an eye, and before you know it, preparation for going back to school and work is in full force.

We've put together a list of must-haves to ensure you're ahead of the game for creating an organized environment that is conducive to being at your very best, most productive self. We're firm believers that organization and a clean, well kept space is key to starting off the new season.

Whether it be adding in a sleek acrylic bookshelf or a variety of stylish boxes to keep clutter at bay, there are always ways to keep your space neat.

Here are five items that can help get your space spick and span for your new working season:

1. Acrylic Bookshelf

With each school year, we tend to accumulate more and more books, but there never seems to be enough space for all the old and new. Our designers recommend adding an Acrylic Leaning Bookshelf. This piece is truly the ideal combination of beauty, form, and function, giving those extra books and decorative accessories a home, while maintaining a chic and clean look.

2. Stacked Boxes

As school and work begins, so does the build-up of knick-knacks around your space. To manage the clutter, add in a variety of decorative boxes. Each box could be designated to a specific category, thus creating an organized work space.

3. Acrylic Trunks

Finding new ways to store the items you've collected can be a challenge. For a unique twist on organized storage, try adding an Acrylic Trunk, as these trunks offer more than extra space - they also function as a side table or a coffee table.

4. Desks

Arguably the most important component of getting organized for school and work is your desk. The Alton Trestle Desk or Contemporary Lacquer Desk are options that offer more than just good looks. They have great storage capabilities which will help keep your desk top spotless.

5. Acrylic Easel

Technology has increasingly become more integrated into education (and our daily lives). While reading an E-book or online article for work or class, the Acrylic Easel allows you to multitask when needed and maintains a light and airy presence. Place the easel on your desk while you are hard at work, or move it to the kitchen counter so that you could easily see the new recipe you are trying. The useful possibilities are endless!
