This small gallery wall in Tin's living room offers a kind of Cliff Notes to her personal style, combining floral and moss elements; shades of white; salvaged, vintage materials and a romantic, feminine theme that continues throughout her Georgia home.
By sticking to a minimal, white color palette Tin creates not just a feeling of continuity from room to room, but a restful quality.
