After home decor with a feminine flourish? Look no further.
A fashion-inspired gallery wall is the ultimate in feminine decor, and a classic styling trick that’s proved to have serious staying power.
Kerrie Hess (pictured above), one of Australia’s renown fashion illustrators, boils it down to three simple steps:
“Start by choosing art in tones that complement each other (including the frames) and the room. Once you’ve decided on your prints, lay your artwork on the floor and plan it out before you start hammering hooks into the wall. Lastly, frame your wall with French-inspired arm chairs, some coffee table books or simply some fresh flowers – it really brings the space together.”
Her secret weapon? Removable picture hanging adhesives.
“If your frames are very light and you forgo glass covers as I often do, you can use hanging adhesives. They allow you to position the image on the wall, stand back to check how it’s sitting and move them before finalising the location.”
As far as colour predictions go, Kerrie is all about millennial pink: “It is the perfect shade to add a modern touch of femininity to any space, and pairs well with most colours — especially neutrals, green and metallic.”
Here, we share eleven fashion illustrators to know if you’re planning a fashion-inspired gallery wall of your own. These include extremely talented Kiwis Georgia Black, 21, whose creative work has featured in Miss FQ, as has the work of 25-year-old Charise Geyser whose graphic design and typography are equally stunning when showcased at home or in the office. Georgia and Charise’s prints are available free with Issue 2.
