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.
When you measure a sofa, don´t just stop at the length or the width because that will not give you the full picture and the measurements can be incorrect. Here is how to measure properly: Width: Measure the width from arm to arm because that is usually the widest part of the sofa. You need to make sure that you are taking the width measurements at the widest point. For instance, if the sofa you selected has rolled arms, measure from outside the widest part of one arm to the other arm and not at the bottom near the legs.
