I love the feel of live plants in the home though I am quite terrible at live plant care. Low maintenance plants such as succulents, airplants, and ferns are great options for us hurried horticulturists. Since these plants require so little care, creative options are abundant.
If the idea of time-consuming and labor intensive wall writing makes you shiver, these great pretenders just might do the trick. Script wallpaper is an option which will yield the same look and feel without all the planning and man hours associated with the handwritten displays featured in yesterday’s post.
Let me start by setting the scene…you’re awating company, you’ve cleaned your home for what seems like hours, cooked a divine meal, and set a gorgeous table, only to ruin it all by pulling out those dingy metal hand-me-down folding chairs. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way any longer. Say goodbye to those rusty old basement dwellers and hello to these seriously stylish seats.
I’ve configured and reconfigured imaginary gallery walls throughout our house since becoming a homeowner. While renovating our foyer (blogged here) allowed me the opportunity to create a small wall of photos and art, it did not calm my craving for the real deal.
I first fell in love with the concept of a gallery wall while perusing images of Kate and Andy Spade’s home tour over on The Selby.
Though gallery walls come in many styles and compositions, I tend to favor walls that are composed of art, personal photographs, and unique finds, yielding a more eclectic look.
What types of galleries make your heart pitter patter?
This weekend, my amzing mother started painting our front porch as a much needed aniversary gift to my husband and I. The transformation is causing me to appreciate the space and wish we put it to more use. I hate to admit it, but the front porch swing has gone unswung since we moved in four years ago. Well, thats all about to change. As the air begins to get crisp I invision our family sipping a cup of coffee or sharing a meal our on that wooden throne. In the meantime, I leave you with some front porch inspiration.
