I have been drooling over the concept of having my very own frame gallery in my home. Whenever I have free time I find myself stuck on pinterest looking at the different types of frame galleries I could have, (follow me on pinterest!) Big empty frames, frames with paintings, frame galleries with pictures, frames that are the same color, frames that are multiple colors, the possibilities are endless! I've had a large collection of odd frames in a box under my bed for a least a year and they have sat there just collecting dust.. You have to understand one thing about me, I'm slow to decorate simply because I want to see if a trend will stick or if I still really have strong feelings towards a project after a couple of weeks. So I began by gathering up all my frames that I've had for months and choosing the ones I thought would work the best for my frame wall.
Is there a big blank wall in your home that is intimidating you? Maybe the thought of large work of art or photo seems like a good idea, because you know the space needs something larger, but you are afraid to pick just one? Maybe, you have you been admiring those lovely collages of photos, but can’t seem to figure out a way to put them on your wall? I understand your dilemma. I recently wanted to fill a blank wall of my own. I had wanted to make it personal, but flexible. I also didn’t want the task of lining up all the pictures just so, creating a bunch of holes in my wall. So instead I decided to have a collage of interchangeable photos, so I decided to put the frames up on shelves.
After Wednesdays Pinterest Challenge I've been sorting through the hundreds of Pinterest projects DIY'ers all over the globe created this week. There are so many talented people behind the pins on pinterest and many were inspired to get up off their behinds and create something beautiful. Many of the projects created from this challenge I've pinned myself, it really just inspires me so! Join me as I count down my favorites from ten all the way to number one from this months challenge!
Last week I received this beautiful picture frame from The Zhush, an online store owned by Sue De Chiara. Sue also writes a blog you can frequently find me on (click here to check out her blog) about all things home decor and fashion. *Side note* I sooooo wish I knew enough about fashion to write about it, but alas I must follow the fashion blogs to even begin to know what to wear in the morning. But I digress, the frame I was sent is a brilliant turquoise color and made of a very sturdy hard plastic frame. It comes with a glass inset (not the plasticky kind of picture cover like some places include) so it looks elegant. The frame has a really vintage retro feel in its shape while the bright color keeps it extremely hip and modern.
Here's a fun fact: the first recorded use of the word Pumpkin as a color name in English was in 1922. When you really get to thinking about colors, especially in the realm of paint chip swatches, you hear things like papaya whip and shell brook and poisoned apple. Crazy how people come up with these names and call them colors.
There is just something so invigorating to me about fall. I love everything about it, the occasional rain, a slight chill in the air, and the holidays that come with it. It's the only season I actually make an effort to welcome into my home decor every year. I went on a googling mission to find autumn-themed DIY projects that not only bring nature indoors but incorporate fallish things in a stylish way. Here are 3 simple projects that involve stuff you have around the house and a few things from Mother Nature.
