I had such a fun time working on this project! My cute client/friend is a very talented photographer and she writes for the popular blog 'Click it up a Notch.' She asked for my help in styling her entry way for her blog post, 7 tips for choosing which images to print for your home. It was a great article, so be sure to check it out!
The only thing she knew she had to have was a gallery wall to display her photography opposite this black credenza in her foyer. I made sure to pick a few black frames to balance out the heaviness of this furniture piece. Adding in these current colors and graphics gives this other wise traditional piece the updated, trendy look my client was after. I love how it turned out!
Creating a mix & match gallery wall like this one is a lot of fun! I always have one or two larger frames to anchor the center and to have the eye immediately go to. Then I will create a circle of frames around the center piece. It doesn't have to be perfectly symmetrical, just let your self have some fun with it! I buy a bunch of frames and bring them to the space and play around for a bit. More times than not I will end up taking a few frames back, but to be safe get a few more than you think you will need. Be sure to try and balance out colors and shapes also. A trick I use to make sure it's balanced is taking pictures to see how it looks on camera. That always does the trick in really knowing how it looks. The good thing about a project like this is there is no wrong answer!
We decided on the color scheme from the family room that is just around the corner from the foyer. Here is a sneak peak of this room we are decorating. Just waiting on a few pieces to arrive to finish it! And check out this mantel! My friend's husband did all the handy work on this beauty! Absolute PERFECTION!!!
