make a grid, break the grid
i have a good friend who is a stylist. once, i was watching her style a bookshelf for a photoshoot, and i asked her “how do you do that? it seems so obvious to you, but i could have never pulled those items together like that to look both casual and elevated at the same time.” she replied, “oh, it’s easy. make a grid. then break the grid.” elevated, and causal. boom.
