How to create a colourful gallery walls with Etsy UK.

Whenever the long Easter holiday weekend approaches, I get that urge to redecorate my home. Is that the same for you too?

If you, like I, don’t have much time for a major refurbish, nor want to spend too much money, then there is another way.

I find using a few key pieces of home accessories, can really refresh a space and give it a different look. This can all be achieved without having to break the bank.

My favourite place to hunt for those unique and quirky cool pieces, is the online market place that is Etsy UK.

I have redecorated a few rooms at home, with my new buys. Hope you enjoy seeing the transformation. I have mainly focused on gallery walls in my Spring refresh.

There is so much to find on Etsy UK. Here’s a little corner dedicated to all lovers of pink, cats and donuts.

The confetti cat plush is by Julia Staite, the pink yellow party ring cushion is by Hey Kitsch Kitty, and the cat mug is by Prints made with love.
Here’s my workspace. I spend a lot of time in here, editing photos and writing blog posts.
I love to surround myself with the happy, creative and inspiring work of others. What do you think of my new colourful gallery wall? gallery-walls I have replaced some of my old prints with these new finds.

From top left to right:

Top row

My existing mint ink’d print by Sketch.inc. I’m not sure if these are still being produced, but I highly recommend Becky’s super cool Etsy store.

WTF print is by Molu type shop , ‘Thou shall get her money’ print by Girl Visual, Heroes David Bowie print is by Kittys Prints GB .

Middle row

Cactus print by Alice Potter, Good Vibes print by The Native State, Baked Beanz print by You Make Me Designs.

Bottom row

Colour block print by Studio Onto, Floral print with peonies by And smile, Botanical print by Hej And Hello Creative Here is a better view of the space. gallery-walls What do you think? Do you like it? How does it compare to the old gallery wall here . This sunshine yellow shelf sits adjacent to my other workspace, above a sofa.

I wanted my shelf to be fun and full of life. I was so excited to have discovered these colourful pop art style prints.

The Beanz and bubble gum prints are by You Make me Designs. The Adventure Awaits print is by Colours Prints.
I have added a large cactus print from Seventy tree next to the shelf and a few fun pastel cushions from Etsy UK. The Custard cream and Jammy heart cushions are by Nikki Mc Williams. You can see the whole room here. The cactus garland is from Confetti Day.

What do you think of this gallery wall? I bought this vintage American desk a while back. My kids loved sitting here to do their homework. They have now outgrown it, but I’ve still kept it.  I’ve styled the desk to show you how it would look like now. I really feel that decorating a child’s space, need not always be superheroes and child centred art. They appreciate a space, as long as it feels fun and happy.

The London illustrated map is by Livi Gosling, the pen pot is by We are paper planes, the Mini plant book is by This Way to the circus, the Sprinkles zip pouch is by Julia Staite and the mini cactus face planter is by Big Fat Dreams.

gallery-walls Now we go downstairs, to peek at my living room. Here is another one of my gallery walls.

I have replaced the oversized art that normally sits over my sofa with these A3 sized art prints. I have bought some new cactus theme cushions to add to my existing collection. The cactus cushion at the far left is by NJS Boutique Co. and the cactus kitty cushion is by The Blue Rabbit Gifts. These beautifully painted cactus pots were sent to me by Mary-Ann of Hello Marilu. Aren’t they so pretty? Mary-Ann also runs workshops on how to create these pots. Here’s my whole living room refresh. How do you like it? That Fiddle Leaf fig tree in the corner is  one of my most favourite possessions. It was a Mother’s Day gift from my kids. The plant really pulls the room’s decor together don’t you think? Anyway, hope you have enjoyed seeing my Spring refresh at home, and how I have styled my gallery walls.

I have also re-styled my son’s bedroom, but will show you the full tour next week.

Have a lovely holiday weekend. (All photography and styling are by Geraldine Tan, editor of Little Big Bell. This is a sponsored collaboration with Etsy UK. All selections and opinions are my own).

Little-Big-Bell-workspace-3 So, I have two creative workspaces. You may wonder why I need to have two.

Well, my husband has somehow gravitated to the room above, when he is working from home, so I had to create another area that inspired me.

We are lucky to have so many rooms at home, to allow me to indulge in my love for decorating.

The workspace above has been my most popular photo on Instagram. I wonder whether workspace number two will live up to expectations? Here goes, see below:

Gallery-wall-styled-and-photographed-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell Ta-dah! What do you think? I have only in the last 24 hours completed the wall gallery for this area.

I started with 20 framed prints and the 13 prints here were selected when they formed the visual palette that appealed.

Workplace-gallery-Little-Big-Bell I love the gallery for its imperfection. The mixed sizes of frames and the differing gaps between the prints.

Design-blogger's-workspace-Little-Big-Bell The monochrome calendar print above is by Sarah of Coco Lapine Design and the gold foil pressed ‘Magnifique’ print is by Minted.

Creative-work-space-Little-Big-Bell Here’s another view.

Colourful-gallery-wall-1-Little-Big-Bell The pineapple and papaya prints are from Hello Pants.

The stripy bunny print is by La p’tite madeleine.

The ‘find the wonderful’ print is by Zoe Murphy.

The Brooklyn and ‘Why the hell not’ prints are by Alphonnsine .

The mint rabbit print is by Ham.

The Coco Chanel print is from Annechovie.

Colourful-workspace-Little-Big-Bell The bottom right pink print is one of my favourites. It’s a collage of pictures taken by moving the camera in a room full of projections and you can buy it from Coco Lapine Design.

Free-computer-screen-saver-Little-big-Bell Did you spot my desktop wallpaper? Well, this is a collaboration between myself and fine stationery designer Nadine Picone of Pinch me moments, based in New York.

Nadine designed the screen saver from how she perceived the Little Big Bell brand represented. She looked through my Pinterest account’s Sayings to Inspire category and picked this saying ‘Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle’.

What beautiful calligraphy and such an on trend colour palette, which goes so nicely with my wall gallery.

lbb-dullsparkle-iPhone-by-Inch-me-studios Cool thing is, you can download this screen wallpaper for FREE courtesy of Nadine and myself.

Here is the  Desktop or i-phone  versions to download. 

Bando-keychain-Little-Big-Bell Ooh la la! Here are my pencils and pens from my favourite shop, Kate Spade.

How-to-create-a bright-workspace-Little-Big-Bell Hope you’ve enjoyed viewing my new gallery wall. How do you think it compares to my other study area?

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
