Lately we’ve been thinking about all the ways we nest and our instinctual desire to make our habitats feel like home. We've covered the foundation of a great night's sleep – from choosing the right bedding, pillows and even rugs – but for expert tips on nesting, we turned to our friends at Artifact Uprising. Known for their high quality and elevated design, they print the stories and memories that matter most. Here are their tips on building your nest so you can hibernate until spring…

Give the Bedroom a Simple Reminder of What's Important

Whichever art you choose to hang in the bedroom, it will be the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see before drifting off to sleep. Thus, it’s important to select pieces that are personal and keep the bedroom calm and serene. Framed photos of everyday memories are a great way to infuse personality into your space.

Add a Photo Holder to go from Nightstand to Nest-stand

A little character goes a long way – add a small frame to an end table or nightstand for an easy decorative touch. This brass display is not only chic but it allows you to swap photos periodically. 

Create a Gallery Wall of the People Who Matter Most

When it comes to nesting, are you really at home without a signature gallery wall? While the process of choosing the right frames for your wall can seem overwhelming, Artifact Uprising has a selection frames perfect for each photo. Their effortless style and premium prints make conquering this decor trend far less daunting.

Turn Your Photo Books Into Coffee Table Books

Personalize your coffee table book selection with photo books of your favorite memories. Revisit last year’s family reunion, that trip to Paris and baby’s first year — all from the comfort of your couch. 

Make the Home Office Feel a Little More Like Home

A well-designed office space is crucial for productivity. Whether your home office is a proper desk or moonlights as the kitchen table, prime your space with the essentials. Updating your daily calendar is a functional and creative opportunity to showcase the photos you love. 

Use Frames for More Than Photos

Beyond photos of your family, memories and most likely self...frame prints, posters, paintings, drawings and vintage art that showcase your interests and style. Art doesn’t need to be expensive, so now’s the time to pull out those posters and flea market finds you’ve been collecting. You can also look for travel mementos, postcards, photos, love letters, concert posters, pages from your favorite book, family heirlooms, etc.

Install Floating Shelves to Easily Interchange Prints

No frame – no problem. A wooden photo ledge is an architectural solution for an elevated and interchangeable photo display.
