Archive for the ‘framed groupings’ Category

Today’s post features a Manhattan apartment from the October 2011 issue of Elle Decor…I was immediately attracted to the warm earthy palette and walls of framed art…in fact, the homeowner/designer likens the frame to frame compositions to wallpaper…from baseboard to ceiling, the frames fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle…collected over three decades, each piece carries with it a memory and a story…put them together, and they transcend their own individual beauty…hanging art takes a skilled eye and a tremendous amount of patience…for me, this is one of the finest displays of frame to frame art I have ever seen…you might be thinking to yourself, the homeowner must be a museum curator or own an art gallery, but the brilliant mind behind this artful home is William Frawley, accessories designer and sought after fashion consultant…what an incredible talent…I can just imagine his eye for detail when designing a shoe or a bag…amazing…

I discovered this wall of art while exploring interiors from skona hem…I just had to post this Danish country home for its raw artistic vibe…certain walls were stripped down to the mortar exposing a sepia colored collage, a beautiful counterpoint to the white walls and ceilings…the sketches are by Michael Kvium, beloved pieces that homeowners Henrik Busk and his wife Stine have collected over the years…the Poul Kjaeerholms daybed is a flea market bargain and fits perfectly beneath the art…I truly love this home for its artful soul…no pretense, just a true love of texture, art and design…wishing you a wonderful spring weekend!

above, my living room

A few years ago, my husband and I purchased a small sectional sofa for our living room. Positioned in the corner opposite our main entry, I knew we needed a strong statement on the walls. After many weeks of research I decided on a large grid of square frames. Mathematically, they echo the “L” shape of the sofa and draw the eye up, creating the illusion of increased ceiling height. Initially I had intended to frame some of my black and white photographs but I ended up falling in love with the brown MDF backing and white mat! The high contrast and exact repetition turned out to be the dramatic statement I was looking for!

I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite framed groupings. Whether the same size or different shapes and sizes, many or few, colorful or monochromatic, framed groupings have the power to transform a space!
