3 Things to Know When Making a Salon Wall
In our book, Homemakers (which you should pre-order now!), we take you through every aspect of the home, room by room: From the kitchen to the dining room and, this week, to the living room. Though many of us juggle multiple careers, hobbies and kids, the home is still the center of our lives. We may be hopping furiously in and out of it based on that day’s meetings and activities, but it will always represent home base.
Today’s super special sneak peek is one of Brit’s favorite interior design hacks.
Also dubbed gallery walls, salon walls have always been our go-to when trying to figure out what to do with a totally blank wall. No matter what size your space, there’s always room for this style of hanging art, photographs and more because it’s so improvisational. It’s an easy-to-create collage of things that don’t necessarily go together, and you can keep adding to it after you’ve hung the initial collection of art. You can mix personal photos, postcards and fine art as long as you follow a few simple rules.
1. Choose frames that go well together. We chose all white for this scene, but you can mix and match colors so long as nothing stands out.
2. Avoid going too symmetrical. You don’t want a center image that is surrounded by the same number of images on each side.
3. Don’t be afraid to mix quirky with beautiful. The great thing about this type of style is that you can group pretty much anything together.
Be sure to pre-order Homemakers for over 1,000 tips and tricks for living more creativity, inside and outside the home.
Itching for more info? Here’s what the book is about, straight from the back cover:
The rules of homemaking have radically changed. Today’s generation is digitally connected 24/7 and often more focused on climbing the career ladder at the office than the stepladder at home.
But the home “maker” evolution has just begun. Thanks to advances in technology, tomorrow’s men and women will find themselves using new gadgets and apps to cook, clean, decorate and even manufacture everything from decor to clothing, from right inside their homes.
In Homemakers, Brit Morin, founder of the wildly popular lifestyle brand, app, and website Brit + Co, reimagines homemaking for the twenty-first century, making it as simple as possible to go from amateur to pro with easy charts, tips, recipes, DIY projects and tech shortcuts. Simple, beautiful and stylish, it offers the digital generation a wealth of innovative ideas and how-tos for a more creative life.
