- our favorite picture hanging hardware + hacks
Featured Product: Prickly Pear | post contains affiliate links Hanging art is often a chore that's on the bottom of everyone's to do list. Why? Well, because it can be a real pain in the rear. Gathering all of your tools and supplies, measuring, and then the dread of that moment when you realize you've driven a drywall anchor into the wall IN THE WRONG SPOT and now you either have to spackle a hole or just leave your art hung in the wrong spot. I've never taken the lazy route and just hung it in the wrong spot before. (I'm lying). As Interior Designers, we have hung A LOT of art over the years. And we've also paid very close attention to the professional art hangers who we (blessedly) get to bring in on larger installations. We've picked up some great tips and best products and we're spilling our secrets with youuuuuuuuuu! HACK 1: KEEP YOUR SUPPLIES TOGETHER This is true for most anything in life, but the more you can let it be easy the more likely you are to do it. Get a bag or box and gather all of your art hanging supplies there so they're easy to find when the hanging mood strikes. HACK 2: MONKEY HOOKS - YOUR NEW BFF Guys, these are literally life changing. You can see me using these bad boys here. It acts like a drywall anchor by grabbing against the back of the drywall, but requires NO TOOLS to install and makes a tiny nail-sized hole. There are varying sizes that can hold up to 50 pounds. Great for most of your art! HACK 3: USE PICTURE WIRE Ever wanted to hang a piece of art, found out that it has those D-rings on the back requiring you to perfectly install 2 nails at the same height or else your art will be crooked? Yeah, I hate those too. Fun fact - you can use picture wire and string it between the hooks! That way you can install just ONE nail (or Monkey Hook) in the center. Sometimes on the back of art it will specifically tell you NOT to install picture wire between the rings. In that case, listen to the manufacturer's instructions. They probably have a reason why. Be sure to use a lot of wire and wrap it around itself tightly on both ends. You don't want that wire slipping.

THE GEAR Here are our go-to products that we always have in our Install Bag! And they're all cute and color coordinated, because we are designers and that's how we roll.

- combining styles with saguaro: south western + mid century modern
Post contains affiliate links. We have been a lot talking about mid-century modern on the blog this month! And we are not stopping now. But what do you do when maybe your personal style doesn't align with one specific genre. In this case, mid century modern was the overall decor of the home; but, in the guest room we added South Western touch through Saguaro. The couple being from California and moving to Texas was totally represented in the mid century modern preferences and a touch of South Western here made it feel true to them. Saguaro was styled into the guest bedroom of a really cool and fun design process that happened virtually throughout covid. You can read that on Tara Lenney Design's website. The bright orange and green really make a beautiful statement while tying the room together. A guest bedroom is an oasis of sorts for your family or friends who are in town visiting for a weekend or the holidays. You want it to be cozy but not too cozy. Giving them the hospitality they want without over staying their welcome, you know what I mean?! It's like a mini hotel room in your home. So, when the styling of this room began; we knew we needed art that brought warmth and happy feelings to the space. Saguaro was just that. With the midcentury gold accents and beautiful walnut tones in the sideboard and side tables, the orange background and green cactus really pulled the hues together. We threw an ombre knit throw blanket over the cozy bed and the room felt complete. Choosing wall art can be tricky but if you know what style you are looking for you; you can always head to our Shop this Style page and match a piece to the room you are styling. Maybe mix and match from multiple styles so it accurately represents you!

- shop this style: mid-mod wall art
Post contains affiliate links. Let's talk about a style that seems to re-sweep the nation over and over again: mid-century modern. Walnuts, curved but clean lines, corners, bold colors, funky shapes and jewel tone accents. It's one of those styles that can pull everything together. Mid-mod has the cool factor; the messy bun look; the "I just woke up like this" in a believable and fun way! On Instagram today, we shared a reel showing how you can put together a mood board for a home office based on the mid century modern style. We incorporated some art that we think is absolutely essential to add in the room. These days, your office, or really the wall behind your desk, is a very important part of your work life balance. It is your zoom background. It is the first thing that you see when you walk in and it can change your mood. Nobody feels motivated by empty walls and uninspiring interiors. So here is our shop this style: Mid-Century Modern edition! On our website, we have a whole page dedicated to different art that fits into the mid-century modern style. It's a great place to shop for a gallery wall because we selected everything to fit together. We hope you feel inspired to refresh your space. It's going to look great!
