Gallery Walls

Create a room that’s uniquely yours by making a gallery wall with items of your choice. Display an array of mirrors, framed family photos, sketches or even postcards – the key is to be creative and make it personal.

‘60s Mod Inspiration

The retro panache of mid-century modern décor perks up rooms with soft, sculptural lines, woven upholstery and bright accessories in geometric shapes. Search for vintage furniture pieces like rounded chairs and button-cushion couches with short, tapered legs to add a sense of authenticity.

Copper Touches

Small pieces make a big statement, so pepper in copper pieces through light fixtures, planters or table settings. Display copper cookware in your kitchen – it’s a great way to add a touch of glamour without going over the top.

Organic Elements

It’s easy to bring nature into your home. Leave linear styles out of the equation. Instead, think of free-flowing shapes, colors found in nature and the peaceful serenity associated with the outdoors.

Mount antlers above your mantel or create centerpieces with shells, metallic leaves or branches. Juxtapose earthy components against woodsy furniture and ivory tones for an outdoorsy aesthetic.
