Creating the Perfect Gallery Wall with Dillon

A few weeks ago I posted a photo from the “Commercial Street” room in the shop that featured a lovely gallery wall display curated and hung by our very own talented art (and chandelier, and really anything that requires hanging) specialist, Dillon.

He has traveled from coast to coast on behalf of Nell Hill’s, hanging art for customers from Palm Springs to Washington D.C. and is always in high demand (when he can sneak out of the shop, that is 😉). This is why, when I started receiving some questions on how to create the perfect display, I knew I needed to corner him and get the inside tricks and tips that he has collected over the years to share with you all!

Meet the Artist Jan Fellers

The other week I had the pleasure of visiting local Kansas City artist Jan Fellers in her beautiful studio. Let me tell you, if you haven’t met her yet, you won’t want to miss your opportunity when she is at the shop April 26-28th! She is a treat, and so is Dave, her hugely supportive husband. I learned so much about Jan and her work – I can’t wait to share it with you all in this weeks post!

A House Isn’t A Home Without Art On The Walls

Just like adding jewelry to the perfect outfit, nothing pulls a room together like impeccably decorated walls. I’ve found at the shop that people are either very excited to buy art, or very intimidated. While art speaks differently to everyone, I can offer a few tactics as to how to incorporate pieces into your decor seamlessly and effectively.
