Master this trending shot and earn hundreds of double taps


What's not to love about Rose Quartz and Serenity? These two are a match made in color heaven—with both giving a soothing effect. We're sure that you also cannot want wait to use these shades at home so to kick-start things and give you just the right dose of color inspo, we've scoured the Web for lovely flatlays that you can use as pegs.

Let these three beautiful flatlays inspire you to create charming vignettes and table setups worthy of a like and a double tap:

Experiment, experiment, experiment!

You don't need a specific equation or formula to be able to achieve the perfect flatlay. Experiment and move things around until you get the picture-perfect setup. You will know if something looks awkward or if the photo is ready to be taken. Try the formal look with everything neatly lined up or you can simply fix your things how you would normally place them on the table. Check how it will look on the photo and make adjustments from there.

Choose your favorite products

What makes a flatlay even more fun and memorable to shoot is if you work with things that you collect and love. If you have a whole arsenal of makeup and beauty products, choose the ones in pastel colors and lay them out on a flat surface. You can do the same for books, too. Choose those with interesting covers or similar colors. This would make it easier for you to finalize the look and layout of your photo.

Use your everyday things

Do you have colored pencils in soft shades of pink and blue? You can include these in your flatlay! Place it parallel with each other to show the contrast between the two. This would look best against a white background so that the colors will stand out.
