Puttin' up the art - gallery walls

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

In the past few days I've managed to do a lot of unpacking of all of the art that was sitting in our garage and found the time to hang a few key pieces.  It really helps to have the parents come to visit so they can look after Bryan and I can knock these things off my to-do list.  And I've also gotten a lot done on the decorative hardware line as well - more on that in a separate post.  In any case, I rounded up some of my favorite pieces and created a gallery wall in the living room. The coloration in the framed artwork really ties the whole room together (not that I intend to keep the orange floral crewel on the wing chair).  I love the mix of pieces.  That large abstract is something my dad bought in college. How cool is that? The abstract botanical prints are something I did in a college print making class and then the others were are gifts from friends and such.  I'm thinking I might add in a few more pieces flanking the main grouping later down the line, but right now I really like how it's working out.  Now, I just need to figure out what to do with those stand-in IKEA parsons tables...

And I hung our orange pumpkin, previously over the fireplace in LA, over the piano. It adds some lightness to a dark corner.
 How are your spring projects shaping up?


  1. It looks beautiful! The art adds so much to the room. I love your style & your colors (& I'm lusting over that sofa!).
