Wait no more!!! The #Stephensonspechome pictures are finally here! These were taken when the people were LITERALLY on their way over with their moving truck. I wish I could have spent more time taking super awesome pictures, but I am just thankful I was able to take any AT ALL! The family wanted to move in before Christmas, so they moved in before landscaping was even finished! But I hope you enjoy the tour! This was SO much fun designing and planning from begining to end!

Let’s begin. Shall we???

Here we go!!

Emily gets a Gallery Wall

Emily has this absolutely gorgeous house, with HUGE walls. And she has done an excellent job at decorating her home! But she hired me on to help her make her living room feel like a place where she can go and relax in the midst of the chaos you have when you are a mom! So the two of us started brainstorming.  We both agreed that a pretty gallery wall would be so cool on this blank wall. We also thought of some ways to hide the kids toys, and we would also change out the rocker to a more fancy chair that would tie the room all together.

 

Our first step however, was going on the search for things to put on the gallery wall. Through several trips to the store and picture messages, we met and started placing out what we had so that we could see what we needed and what we could return. This is what we finally came up with.

 I always lay it out on the floor first, right below the wall. This gives you an idea of how much room you have on the walls, and you can move things over and over again without putting several nail holes in the wall. Next, once you have the layout set, take a few pictures of it on the floor. I referenced this photo for spacing when it came time to hang. This helped me get an idea on spacing from one object to the other.
