Picture Wall – Part Two – The Process

Okay, so I know these shots aren’t too exciting, but I wanted to show process images.
The installer is going to hang the mix of vintage and new family photos next week! I’ll be sure to share the finished walls. I strongly suggest using templates, hanging them was less painful then I thought! {sorry about the blurry shots}
{ I am going to tweak the second wall a bit, but I’ll wait until the install. The images themselves will effect the balance}

Three styles – Picture Walls

I’ve been cutting craft paper templates for what feels like days!! I’m working on two picture walls for a client. I’m off to hang the templates this morning {wish me luck}. I’ll post the process, and final results soon!
In the meantime I thought I’d inspire you with three different approaches!
+ The formal grid – image 1
+ Loose Salon Style art work (mixed media) – image 2
+ A clean approach – meandering photographs with slightly different frames – image 3

Have a great day!

Sneak Peek

Here’s a quick peek at a project I’ve been working on with a lovely client in Boston. We are adding a bedskirt to the crib, a rug, a glider and artwork to the nursery! Of course my quick photos don’t look great! {it was raining out, so I had to use the flash, for instance you can’t see that the cut velvet pillow also has turquoise in it and the window seat is a great tweed with all the colors!}. When the project is finished I’ll have it professionaly photographed!

The color palette for the room was inspired by this fun crewel fabric from Clarence House.

The office nook

I love adding a grosgrain ribbon detail to pillows

Manuel Canovas’s Bengale in Paprika

Lulu DK’s chant, looks so amazing as a roman shade!

A NEW favorite…

I was meeting with one of my wonderful clients today, and we both decided that this yummy fabric was a new favorite; so we’re using it in her guest room! Amanda Nisbet, the queen of color herself, used this print on the walls in her office.

Speaking of… If you haven’t seen Amanda’s site lately, she’s added some new project images. Here’s a peek.

I love the coral and pink combo!
