Black and White Staircase Gallery Wall - @SuzyHomemakerUK

There’s a phenomenon called The Instagram Effect. In interior terms, it’s what a space in your home used to look like before Instagram and how it looks after you’ve been grammed to within an inch by the most gorgeous and inspirational Insta-worthy interiors.

Such is the way with the OneandSeventy staircase.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE a good gallery wall and OneandSeventy is home to several. From the gallery made of wallpaper to an almost fully-covered chimney-breast.

I can’t help it. A bare wall just screams DRESS ME!

And I do hate to disappoint.

Creating a Staircase Gallery Wall

Our staircase started out like any other plain old boring wall. Before Homesense blindsided me with an Instagram favourite – The Neon Peace Sign. Now we have a full-on staircase gallery and I think it might actually be my favourite yet.

Once I had the peace sign placed and plugged, the rest followed pretty quickly. From Insta-favs courtesy of Nickie Kelly and Pati Robins, to the obligatory hanging plant.

Because as every interiors grammer knows, no insta-worthy home would be complete without greenery.

Then, of course, there are the Suzy makes.

Well… it wouldn’t be a OneandSeventy gallery without a few of my own creations, now would it?

Maybe it's Because I'm a Londoner Art - @SuzyHomemakerUK

Like a very special date immortalised in ‘galvanised’ wooden numbers and “Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner” – a lyrical reminder of my roots dreamed up on a journey home from London.

Hogwarts Gryffindor Patch framed with Platform 9 3/4 Paper - @SuzyHomemakerUK

Art inspired by Harry Potter that makes use of the Gryffindor badge from a Halloween costume (had to get the H-word in there somewhere!) It’s also a two-finger salute to The Bestie who went to a la-di-dah private function at Warner Brothers WITHOUT ME and thought Platform 9¾ tissue paper would make up for it.

No. No, it didn’t.

There’s my little piece of dark Alice whimsy.

And memories of Hawaii – “Kuuipo” means “My Sweetheart” and Ku’u Aloha means “My Love”.

I made a surname and zip code monogram in celebration of our wedding venue.

And an ombré skull – the pre-cursor to the one in the bathroom… only better.

Then last but not least… the finest damn word in the entire English language.

I have more frames laid out in the office, waiting to be filled but you know what? I think it’s done. I really like how this staircase gallery has come together and I’m happy with the shape and content.

For now.

What do you think? Does it need anything else?

Maybe you have a space in your home that’s been forever changed by The Instagram Effect. As always, let me know by dropping a comment below, or coming over to Facebook or *ahem* Instagram for a chat.

A hui hou,
