Gray Malin’s Breathtaking Master Suite Redesign, featuring Wisteria

When you’re Gray Malin, U.S. fine art photographer and New York Times bestselling author, your house needs to be photoshoot-worthy, and the master suite is no exception. When he purchased a new Los Angeles home several months ago, he knew the space needed to be special. So he teamed up with interior design company Homepolish and found the perfect designer for the project – Shana Wardle of Sloane & Studio Interiors.

“Gray is a storyteller, so before even meeting him, my goal was to create a room that felt warm, inviting and full of micro-moments,” Shana says. “Thus, I was so excited to hear him say - patterns please! He knew he wanted to juxtapose various patterns from a similar color-family, and the room had blue written all over it in my mind.”

“Considering it was the master bedroom and a place where I spend a considerable amount of time, I decided to go all out on this project,” he says. And that he did, carefully selecting luxury pieces that worked with the space and theme, including two Wisteria bestsellers.

Over the next six months, Gray and Shana worked to bring their vision to life: universal coastal vibe, inspired by Gray’s love of the beach, the primary subject of his photography. Shana brought a light and airy, blue and white ambiance to life via patterns, textures, a cool color palette and, of course, Gray’s own photography.


Featured prominently on either side of the bed is Wisteria’s own Pagoda Mirror in white, which is reminiscent of traditional Chippendale design and Asian-inspired architecture.

Just to the right of the entrance, take a peek inside the walk-in closet and you’ll catch a glimpse of our three Happiness Pots, beautiful representations of traditional Chinese blue and white pottery. Here, they are artistically grouped and bursting with bright and colorful flora.

Two of the three pots are also used in the bedroom, decorating a white shelf and matching perfectly with our Hand-Painted Chinese Cache Pot, an exquisite vessel for lively green palm plants nearby.


Gray notes that pieces from Wisteria and a few other select companies are “represented in other rooms in the house, which I feel brings a continuous flow throughout our home’s overall design.”

While this was the largest personal design project he’d ever taken on, Gray says, “I can wholeheartedly say that the effort that was put into each and every inch of this room was 100% worth it.” We couldn’t agree more.

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.

4 Ways to Make Your Space Feel like Home

Ah, home. It's the place that has the ability to make us feel at ease simply by hearing the mere utter of the word. The idea of it embodies comfort, relaxation, and warmth. The question is: How can you create a space that feels as cozy as the thought of "home"?

Here are four tips:

1. Include Diffusers & Candles

The sense of smell is highly linked to memory. Scents can mentally take us back to various times and places. Take advantage of this, and incorporate diffusers or candles that ignite special memories or feelings.

2. Treat Yourself with Trays

You can never have enough trays in your home. Their versatility makes them the best accessory to have in a room. Use one as a bar cart, welcoming guests by showcasing light bites and cocktails. Use another to treat yourself to a little breakfast in bed. Does anything feel cozier than breakfast in bed?

3. Frame the Family

Photos of family and close friends sprinkled around your space can be the key to making a house feel like a home. Use the opportunity to collect beautiful frames that complement your decor.

4. Pick the Perfect Pottery

According to Chinese traditions, newlyweds were often presented with intricate, blue vases bearing the Chinese symbol for happiness. Legend has it that they would bring happiness into your home for years to come. Add a little happiness to your new living space by including blue and white pottery. On their own, these pots are beautiful and a great decorative addition to your home, but they can also work as a vases for a vibrant flower arrangement.
