the gallery wall: s+s style

Since our last segment on gallery walls, we at S+S have been working hard on our own take of the fabulous form of decorating. 
As you can see, I used a lot of silhouettes, mirrors and vintage accents to complete my wall. We also added our initials for a personal touch. The silhouette on the left, was actually an original made of my mom when she was a little girl. So obviously, objects with special meaning make perfect additions to the wall. I felt the iron mermaid I found at the Raleigh Flea Market was a necessary touch for completion.

This gallery wall also incorporated many personal keepsakes, mirrors and vintage pieces. Loving the mixing and matching of colors, textures and sizes. We love us some initials. We both used the Home Sweet Home print from Couture Prints.

Also pictured, a fabulous cabinet that is soon going to be painted red. This was an amazing find on Good in Hood over at Nuestra Vida Dulce. If you haven't checked this blog out yet, I recommend doing so. Each week, she features a different city and she finds the best pieces at the best price on Craigslist.

The key to making a gallery wall is mixing and matching. I think I ended up moving my pieces around a total of 82 times. But hey, ain't no thang. I am loving the finished product.


You are the best, the most, the everything.
