You know….that wall you have been planning on building the collage on…the one to hold years worth of your favorite family photos? Well let’s do it! You have those precious photos from your family’s past few sessions that you had printed and may or may not be waiting to be framed, you have some of your own favorites that you have taken and cherish that moment….move it up on you ‘to do’ list and it will get done this summer!
If you would like my help, please don’t hesitate to email or call me! I love designing galleries and sending you ideas using YOUR PHOTOS. I know it is hard to visualize how they will look, but by doing a wall plan with me, you can see the difference of impact between an 8×10 and a 16×20 or 20×24 canvas or framed print. HUGE DIFFERENCE.
Use Pottery Barn’s great examples and guiding website to help you! A few months ago I posted my foyer renovation and modeled it after this photo from Pottery Barn that I had torn out at least a year prior! Visit Pottery Barn for many, many, many beautiful ideas!
Here is a wonderful example of how to start your gallery and make some easy templates for rearranging to please your eye before you start hammering! Credit goes to the blog Felt So Cute.
Here is a fabulous dynamic wall arrangement from RED ENVELOPE that I have seen many clients use. It is very easy to update the photos as well as hang the initial arrangement since it is a simple bar system with three mounts. LOVE EASY AND QUICK!!! One client took a huge hallway, mounted 4 of these systems and filled the frames with beautiful bright colorful photos. On another wall in their kitchen they used an additional 5 systems around their eating area and filled it with gorgeous black and whites! LOVE this idea!
And finally, here is a great idea for four large images, beautifully framed and used as a focal point in a room where they will be viewed and enjoyed on a daily basis:) This came from BHG.
