home: found this [ gallery wall set ]

It’s lovely to create a gallery wall, a collection of great art and prints or pictures that mean a lot to you – but if you haven’t the confidence to bring a selection together – Ikea have done the hard work for you.

We love this 8 piece set from Ikea made up of varying frame sizes and a curated set of prints that work beautifully together. It’s perfect and ready to hang – and create that feature gallery wall with ease.

Super priced at just £35

Gone are the days of hiding everything behind cabinet doors and wardrobes, it time to embrace what you own and show it off.

This Autumn furniture is to be admired not only by how it looks but also whats on it. Open clothes rails instead of wardrobes in the bedroom, doorless cabinets in the kitchen and drinks trolleys in the living room is where its at.

Going for this kind of look will obviously mean some serious de-cluttering and organising. Pick your favourite pieces to display on shelves, your best dinnerware out for all to see in the kitchen and neat hung clothing on rails. Its much more of a curated feel, almost shop like with minimal designed pieces of furniture.

Of course there is still a need to for some closed doors for those items you just cant live without but perhaps are less appealing on the eye. But generally if you can invest in some key storage you will start to embrace it and destress knowing you have a place for everything, and it looks good at the same time.
