As the visual marketing and merchandising lead for Gallery Direct, a major part of my job is keeping an eye on interior design trends. That means I get to spend part of my day trolling design blogs, Houzz, Pinterest and Piccsy for the most stunningly inspiring images to share with Gallery Direct customers (I know, poor me).
I thought I'd start sharing a few of my absolute favorite web haunts for great design inspiration, and today I want to talk about Lonny Magazine.
Lonny is an an online design magazine that's chock-full of to-die-for products, great decorating tips, and house tour photo arrays that make me want to climb through my computer screen and make myself at home.
If you're an art and design junkie like I am, I highly suggest adding Lonny to your daily reading list.
I completely fell in love with two images in Lonny's November issue; both feature oversized artwork with a graffiti-esque, gritty feel:[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="476"] Image Credit: Lonny Magazine[/caption] [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="476"] Image Credit: Lonny Magazine[/caption] Amazing, right? I'm considering a similar look for my new living room. If you're inspired too, check out our Urban Edge collection on Gallery Direct. I also took the liberty of pulling a few of my favorite pieces for your consideration: [gallery order="DESC"] Want one? Find them here...
- Try grouping in odd numbers, it creates more interest.
- Decorate with a series, use multiples of the same print in varying colors.
- Choose art in the same color scheme but vary the size and shape
- Choose colors that are opposites on the color wheel like blue and orange and purple and yellow they will really pop against each other.
- In a neutral room add interest with only one or two bold pops of color either in art or accessories.
- Use a white wall to really accent a colorful painting.
