When Eva Mendes' Instagram posts aren't gushing over hubby Ryan Gosling's portrayal of Ken in Barbie, they're serving up endless style.
The actor, fashion designer, and mom-of-two took to the photo-sharing app to express how much she misses designing accessible clothing for women (a passion project she's put on pause) all while modeling a flowy, floral dress in front of an equally floral gallery wall.
The cogs in our brain started turning and before we knew it, we began mapping out small entryway ideas to recreate Eva's sophisticated springtime setup. Hey, the warm weather will be here before you know it!
How to recreate Eve Mendes' Instagram snap in your home
Luckily, it's easy to wow guests with Eva's elegant look. Not only are her large framed wallpaper prints a showstopper, but interior designer Nicole Cullum says it's chic, easy, and renter-friendly to recreate, something you'll appreciate when hanging things in an apartment.
Find your preferred photo frames, get some heavy-duty hanging strips, such as the Command 20 Lb XL Heavyweight Picture Hanging Strips on Amazon, and peruse wallpaper patterns that speak to you.
"Repurpose some vintage or found frames and cut your wallpaper to fit," Nicole says. "There are so many wallpaper options now it’s easy to find a couple of patterns that flow with your color scheme."
You can also ask around your friends and family and see if they have any leftover wallpaper to help give those scraps a new lease of life and save your pennies. If florals aren't for you, pick any wallpaper you like.
Before you know it, you'll have a brag-worthy small entryway DIY.
"If you have smooth walls, you can place your peel and stick wallpaper directly on the wall and simply hang your frames over them and you’re done," Nicole adds. "If you have textured walls, it’s best to get a nice foam core board such as a 20-pack 0.2inch poster board from Amazon to mount your wallpaper on, and place it inside your frame to hang."
If you like switching small decor touches up from season to season, these frames will be the perfect spot for timely swaps.
