My home has always been my sanctuary; it’s my happy place, a reflection of who I am, and a place where I create cherished memories with friends and family. Adding a gallery wall to my home has been on my to-do list since I moved in, but it has repeatedly fallen to the bottom of the list when deadlines, due dates, and life gets in the way.
Among other things, I’ve decided that summer 2014 will be the summer of decorating; it’s time to tie up all those loose ends that nag me every time I see them: invest in a new set of super-soft bed sheets, create a gallery wall, find a bright and cheery shower curtain, and incorporate more plants and flowers into my space.
The first (and biggest) project I’m tackling is creating a gallery wall above my couch. I’m slowly collecting prints, quotes, and art that I’ve been eyeing for months now, carefully curating the Curated Taste HQ gallery wall. I picked up a print this past weekend at The Cross, my favourite Vancouver décor store, and have been searching for prints that resonate with me.
I can’t stand bare walls, so I’ve hung a few pieces to act as placeholders until I’ve collected everything. It’s pretty bare-bones at the moment, which is exactly what I want. I’ll be posting updates, inspiration, and photos as I go, so be sure to follow along on Curated Taste, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. To start things off, here are a few prints that have caught my eye during the research phase of my gallery wall; I can see all of these fitting in perfectly above my cozy couch (with me on it, of course).
