African Juju hats have become something of a necessity in stylish homes across North America in recent years - and for good reason! The hats (worn by tribal chiefs and dignitaries during royal court affairs in Cameroon) are made up of large, vibrant bird feathers, and come in a wide variety of colors. The feathers are considered to be symbolic of prosperity, and they represent all the many positive qualities associated with birds, such as freedom.
Sometimes one piece just isn’t enough. This is when gallery walls can really save the day. A photo gallery can allow you to create a really dramatic impact and it saves you from having to choose just one piece. Just remember when hanging pieces to create a gallery wall that all the items together will act as one unit. The center of the entire display should be at eye level. It's always best to plan this type of display before you start hanging. Place the pieces on the ground in front of the wall and play around with the arrangement until you find one that satisfies you. If space doesn't allow for this use graph paper.
Maps are a fantastic way to add a sense of history to a room. They’re also great for paying homage to the places you've been or places you want to go. When it comes to decorating with maps you have a ton of options - colorful, black and white, sepia toned, new, vintage, city, country, transit, nautical - the list goes on.
