Back in the early planning stages of Sarah’s homework room, we attended a party at our friend Brooke’s house, and were completely smitten with her incredibly full and vibrant gallery wall full of her two kiddo’s art and started talking about incorporating one into her homework room design. Fast forward a week and while sitting at Sarah’s kitchen table she’s all “I have to tell you about this product I found” and I’m (as usual) interrupting her with “No! Me first! I figured out your gallery wall!”. I’m sure Sarah gave me something to eat at that point, because the next thing I know she’s pulling up the Indie Mats website and telling me she has a better idea.
Come to find out, Sarah and I had stumbled upon the same company while looking for a solution to her gallery wall. No expensive frames that took forever to hang and left holes in the walls. No commitment to the included art so it could be easily changed out. Pretty much perfect for how Sarah envisioned hanging the kid’s art.
So Sarah did her Sarah thing and reached out to Indie Mats – and explained her vision. Sarah thought that white mats would help tie together the hodge podge of art the brought home from school – and she didn’t want to hang it in the study room but rather in the main entry way to their house where the kids could see their work on display every day!
The whole process couldn’t have been easier – literally tape the art to the back and mount on the wall. How amazing would these white mats be decorated by little hands or with meaningful words on them? The mats come in a huge variety of shapes and colors – I can’t wait to show you what else we’ve come up with for them.
We’re so grateful to Indie Mats for partnering with us on this little vision . Pop on over to their site or take a peek on InstaGram or Facebook. Since Sarah’s mats are now packed up on a boat somewhere on their way to her new house in Alaska, I had a little funny putting some of Vivi’s art in the entry to the studio. We can’t wait to see them on the walls there filled with art from their new schools!
