Recently my mom bit the bullet and ordered a Frame TV, and she couldn’t be more thrilled with having interchangeable art on the wall instead of a large black rectangle hogging space in her living room. We talked about doing a gallery wall to give that space even more visual interest, so a couple weeks ago I spent an evening shopping and installing it for her. It was so much fun!
I can’t pop by and visit often since we live a couple hours apart, so rather than waiting for art from various places to arrive, we headed to Target. Although I know they have really stepped up their home decor in recent years, she and I were both surprised we found everything we’d need.
She’s been loving pinks, peaches, and warm neutrals lately. I was smitten with this line drawing portrait as soon as I saw it months ago, so that was a top pick for sure. My mom is thrilled to be traveling to Europe soon for the first time in years, so some travel photography was an obvious choice, and the graceful curves of this abstract gave a nice variety of mediums as well as a serene spot for the eye to rest. I peppered in a lovely rose-colored African woven basket and a pair of 3-D printed planters she had found on Etsy, too, for even more texture and visual interest.
We managed to leave an item behind in our cart (ooops!), so while she went back to get it I had the apartment to myself to hang her gallery wall and surprise her. And *spoiler alert* — she LOVED it!
The addictive quality of new throw pillows is a constant joke between us, so that was another fun little living room update. We picked a couple new pillow covers to mix with a few older favorites, and now she has this delightful combo on her couch. Super pretty AND so lounge-y soft. And voilà! An easy January living room refresh.
