Of course it helps if you have a home that allows you to move further on this path of serenity. Even if you are not the quest a peaceful home makes your life a whole lot more productive healthy and easy.
Pick a singular element or feature that binds the different elements of your gallery wall together. It could be the color of the picture frames their shape size or just the general style.
In the tiny apartment a flood of natural light makes a big difference and placing the dining area next to the window gives it that additional cheerful panache. It also allows you to enjoy the view outside and take in the city skyline after sunset.
Even in the open plan living the gallery wall gives the dining space in the corner a distinct identity and style of its own. Most importantly it brings warmth character and a ‘bit of you’!
Just pick a picture frame that you love and use it for all your prints photographs and artwork to create a common thread. Once you have this you can either pick a common theme for the gallery wall or make one that is just eclectic or even bordering on the eccentric.
A window seat next to it all with built-in storage can make this tiny dining area even more efficient while a punch of bright color also seems apt in these light-filled areas.
A common style helps immensely and or those who do not really need an exclusive and spacious dining area a small breakfast nook will do just fine. It can double as a convenient dining area for a couple and you will not have to spare additional area for an exclusive dining room.
Sometimes it is obvious and on other occasions it is understated. But there are few things that bring a ‘personal touch’ to your home like photographs artwork and framed prints hanging in the wall.
