Update Your Gallery Wall With These ‘Queer Eye’-Approved Picks
When you’re as obsessed with Queer Eye as we are, you’re always looking for new ways to insert some Fab Five-level glamour into your life. But if bingeing season 2 didn’t give you enough amazing design inspo, worry not: Art.com has partnered with impossibly endearing decor master Bobby Berk to make his signature style accessible to all. How, you ask? In the form of seasonally curated art collections that will help you upgrade your space. Just add a few framed masterpieces to your walls, and you’ll be that much closer to living in the crew’s stunning Atlanta loft.
“Whether it’s redesigning my own home or transforming spaces for my clients and Queer Eye makeover recipients, it’s clear that life is so much better with art,” Berk says of the collab. “Art is the finishing touch that makes a space truly unique, and I’m excited to help people discover, own, and enjoy pieces they love.” Berk’s ever-changing selections on Art.com will be grouped by theme, making it even easier for aspiring home designers to channel the most on-trend vibe for their space. To get started, here are the top three trends Berk is loving right now and his picks to help you steal the look.
Not-So-Basic Black and White
“I love black and white art because it’s classic but also versatile, working with all color palettes and furniture styles,” says Berk. And as much as we love color, we totally agree that there’s nothing like the impact of crisp black and white. “My favorite look is a large, statement-making photograph coupled with mid-century furniture and gray decor accents. A large-format piece adds personality and a focal point, tying the room together.” Scroll on for his top picks.
Berk is just as in love with Scandi design as we are, and his picks prove that the look is here to stay. “Scandinavian design is airy and fresh,” he says. It’s also versatile: “Stick to an ultra-light color palette and minimalist prints in simple white frames. A small, neatly arranged gallery wall won’t look cluttered and adds significant visual interest,” Berk recommends. Check out his faves below.
We’re all about the boho look, and as it turns out, Berk is too (provided it’s done right). “The new boho is organic and lush, with wood and wicker elements complemented by a neutral color palette and pops of blues and greens,” he says. “Choose art with textile-inspired patterns and shapes, and prop framed prints against the wall for a natural, casual feel.” As non-committal decorators and frequent apartment-movers, we have to say, the leaned-against-the-wall look is a personal fave. See his boho finds below.
