If you have been following me for a long time already, you know just HOW much I love spring and interior design. Both things make me so happy.
Spring mainly because I get to read in the sun, stay outside longer and see the little flowers grow and Interior design because I can express my creativity, create something which is me through and through and since it is temporary and I can change it up as often as I want.
So, naturally, I was very excited when Juniqe reached out to me and asked if I want to style some of their prints.
As you might know, I went through various wall designs over time and this time I wanted something bright and light and something which shouted Spring and Happiness. I definitely think I found the perfect pieces to finish up my little gallery wall and I am so happy how the whole thing turned out.
So, now, let me talk you through my creating process.
FIND THE RIGHT PIECES
From the beginning on I knew I wanted pastel colors with a few touches of strong mustard yellow and a little bit green since this color goes perfectly with my plants. The cool thing about Juniqe is their trend collections. I went through their pastel collection where I already found a lot of pieces and filled up my shopping cart with different prints from collections like Living Coral or Line Drawings.
As soon as I thought I had enough, I reviewed the pieces I decided on and also asked my sister if they go together from her point of view. We paid attention that one color was in at least two or three other prints. Same with the sizes. After we adjusted some little things and after the hundredth time of reviewing the cart, I hit the buy bottom and couldn’t wait for them to arrive (which was so quick, btw!!) 🙂
FRAMES OR NO FRAMES?
I asked myself that question so many times and was so sure about getting frames this time. Now you might be asking yourself “Oh, Franziska but what made you change your mind?”
Well…..honestly I was too scared to hammer a lot of nails into my wall when the possibility of me wanting to change up my wall design in a few weeks is pretty high. That’s why I went with glue pads in the end and just got one golden frame for my flower bouquet print.
Another argument, why you don’t necessarily need frames is that they are expensive…even the ones from Ikea or Amazon. Glue Pads are waaaay more affordable and easier to remove from your walls.
HOW TO ARRANGE YOUR ARTWORK
There are a billion different ways to arrange art on your walls. You don’t believe me? Then just type Gallery Wall in the Pinterest search bar and you will get thousands and thousands of different layouts and styles.
I laid out my posters + my two Mapiful maps on the ground beforehand to see how everything would fit together. It definitely was a good thing to do but the person I am, I changed up the layout while sticking the posters on the wall. Now, you can do that when you are using glue pads like I did. It’s probably not really working with nails, so just lay out your posters before and see what you like. You can also use a template from Pinterest, like this one to make the arranging process easier. Prints of the same size can be switched afterward as well.
SHOULD I USE ONLY PRINTS or CAN I INCLUDE DIFFERENT PIECES OF ART AS WELL?
YES! I even think you SHOULD do that. As you might see on the pictures, I included two different calendars, a few pieces of my Monet collection and other sentimental cards which mean a lot to me and just need to be in close reach. I love that not everything is just from one brand but that it is a great mix of everything. Different meanings, different textures, different brands. That’s what makes my wall so me and so special 🙂
And there you go. I bet you just created your own perfect gallery wall 🙂 I hope this was helpful. More pictures of my wall coming your way ↓
