Frame by Frame: Creating a Salon Wall

So, you have that one empty (and consequently massive) wall that’s been staring at you far too long. Or maybe you have a collection of decor pieces, photos, and prints that you have yet to find the perfect place to hang in your home. Well, there’s a solution that may initially seem intimidating, but just might be what your polished home is missing. Enter the salon wall (AKA the gallery wall). A salon wall is a great way to infuse some personality into your space and really make a statement. You may not have all the right pieces laying around and find they may take some time. But don’t get overwhelmed—we have some tips and tricks to help you along the way.

Start by selecting a consistent color palette or theme. In our example, we’re highlighting all things avian in a range of natural hues. We suggest starting with a piece or two that you adore, then build your collection around that. Ultimately, your salon wall should reflect your personality and showcase your favorite things.

Once you’re happy with your collection, it’s time to play with the layout and put it all together.

First, anchor the collection. We think this is best done with one large piece. A dominant piece will serve as the foundation and dictate the flow of other smaller pieces. There is, however, an alternative if you don’t have this piece. In it’s place, use two to four pieces hung at matching heights to establish your focal point.

We suggest starting from the center then working outward and upward. This will help maintain balance within your designated space.

Vary the sizes and orientation of each piece. A variety of shapes and sizes will help the wall feel balanced and keep the eye entertained.

Be sure to keep the distance between the pieces consistent. It doesn’t have to be exact but you don’t want it to look cluttered and completely unplanned. Also, take time to make sure each piece is level. Creating a salon wall is no easy feat, so details matter.

Our favorite part of creating a salon wall is watching it all come together. It may seem like a daunting task at first, but trust us, you’ll love it. An added bonus is that you can break up the gallery at any time and rehang the pieces throughout your home (although we suggest you enjoy the finished product for awhile first)! Love our salon wall? You can purchase all pieces as a set or individually to suit your collection (at 20% off until 9/21)!

Stylish Storage: Our Reclaimed Wood Hutch – Small

Seeking stylish storage? Look no further—we’ve got the perfect piece for you! We’ve taken one of our most popular pieces and slimmed it down, making this storage unit even more versatile.

Constructed of recycled wood and iron, our Reclaimed Wood Hutch is modeled after early 20th-century cabinets that were once used in vintage-era banker’s offices. Though its façade is faceted with what appears to be several small drawers, this piece actually features five bottom drawers and two top slim drawers built into the iron frame—perfect to store small-scale items.

Multifunctional, this piece can be used in a variety of settings. With an abundance of drawers and shelving, this hutch works well in the kitchen to store dinnerware and dining accessories, or in the living room to hold blankets and tchotchkes. We especially like the idea of using this piece in the study to hold office supplies—harkening back to its origin of use.

Everything Old Is New Again: Our Antique Moroccan Sconce

There is a saying that an antique is anything old with class, and we find this to be true of our Antique Moroccan Sconce.

Wisteria has always been influenced by unique, worldly items—some that have an intriguing story or interesting history and some that don’t. And sometimes we are able to create meaning and beauty by giving new life to existing pieces. Every Antique Moroccan Sconce is made from a collected antique mirror, revived with a simple iron candleholder, giving each one a completely unique identity—varying in size, color, and style. This sconce features an emblematic Moroccan arch, a distinct characteristic of Moroccan architecture and design. Made of wood, this antique piece has a naturally weathered and distressed façade that is an organic result of its age. The subtle flicker of a flame from a small pillar or tealight candle will accentuate its heirloom quality—and your wall space.

Style Tip

Our sconces are sold separately, but we recommend buying multiples—especially with these—to create a curated gallery wall. Alongside the right pieces, our Antique Moroccan Sconce will deliver an antiquarian feel to a wall space and leave you reveling in its rustic charm. We chose our Rajasthani Mirror and our Moroccan Repeating Mirror for a complete Marrakesh look.
