Art tips into the quarantine days_Stay home with art

Have you find yourself stuck at home; For a week; For 14-days quarantine due to coronaVirus COVID-19; These days all of us we have to adapt to the new circumstances and facts. We, in the online gallery give you tips and creative ways to spent your free time at home; with your family or roommates with your partner or alone, it’s a chance to learn new things and skills to focus on your mind and to travel (for now mentally) throughout to beautiful images... Make a gallery wall the right way at home..

1: Get inspiration. 

First up is to determine your personal gallery wall style. Check out the slideshow at the beginning of this post to determine your gallery wall style. Do you like randomness or a grid? Matching artwork or varied? Matching or mismatched frames? Objets d’art? The sky’s the limit.

2. Lay it out . Lay out the pieces of your gallery wall on the floor. Start with a large centerpiece and build out. Make some arrangements, take pictures re compose until you get your final decision.

3. Mock it up. Next, to be sure that your composition looks good on the wall and that the height of it feels right, mock it up on the wall with paper. Trace each frame onto a piece of kraft paper, tape to the wall in your desired order. Ask yourself, is it grouped around nearby furniture appropriately? Is it a comfortable height? Does it fill the space appropriately?

4. Frame. Now it is the right time to do so before hanging them up.

5. Hammer and hang. If followed the previous steps this shouldn’t take long. You can mark each paper with the spot, mark them with a pencil, check the heights once more- then comes the favorite part hanging those frames to the wall.

6. Enjoy of course!

Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

An interesting movie with eccentric characters and sceneries by director Wes Anderson.

It is situated to a ski resort to the fantastic curious Democracy of

Zubrowka.during 1930's

A writer encounters the owner of an aging high-class hotel, who tells him of his early years serving as a lobby boy in the hotel's glorious years under an exceptional concierge.

The plot is about the investigation of a murder that is surrounded by various events as the stealing of a work of art, and prison getaways.

Besides the exsiquite acting of Ralph Fiennes, browse the beautiful middle age town Gorlitz and its pitoresque alleys.

Harry Potter and the Philosophers' Stone(2001)

All the Happy Potter movies are a unique journey to the mysterious and dark world of magic.

To the movie, the most of the places filmed are imaginery ex. the palatform 9 &3/4 to the King's Cross Station of London but other locations are inspired by real places in England U.K.

The trip to Italy (2014)

To this movie you will be guided to an impressive road trip of 2 old English actors Steve Coogan and the Welsh Rob Brydon.

The starting city is Piemont and from there you will reach through Rome (Eternal city) to the magnificent and -my personal favorite- Amalfi, then return to Naples to end up at charming Capri island.
