Laura from Burlington, Ontario just sent us some photographs of my work in her third floor hallway and has agreed to let us share them with you, hooray! She was looking for two prints to hang side by side so we helped her figure out what would look great. We ended up custom cropping a vertical image into a horizontal so she could create a nice clean arrangement. She framed her 8 x 10s using 14 x 17 inch silver paint gallery frames from West Elm in Toronto, doesn’t that textured mat look sophisticated?
When it came to where to hang her art Laura centred them on the wall between the two doors to give a nice symmetry to her hall. She positioned them close to each other to unify her display, and hung them about five feet off the floor, it’s a really nice height for viewing, especially in a narrow space.
Such a nice stairway too! I love the wood steps with the white risers and that chunky moulding makes me swoon.
Thanks for letting us peek into your home Laura!
We’d love to hear about your favourite picture frames, do you like simple black wood with a white mat? Do you prefer wood frames that look like wood? Or is metal more your style? Do you like wide mats, thin mats, or no mats at all? What are your favourite sources for frames and mats?
