I am happy to be back to my blog (August totally disappearing due to

laptop collapse) with a new HDD up and running!  Here is a great

example for hanging multiple prints/paintings. which is always a

challenge.  This can very inspirational if  you are a collector of special

pieces of framed art, but are in a quandary as to how to display them

tastefully.   Your collection will not look exactly like this, but it will

definitely show your own personality! I, myself, am faced with this

problem, being one of those with an art ‘stash’ which I have recently

perused!

Happy Hanging!

I haven’t been posting for about one month because I was fastidiously

moving into my new apartment in a 100 year old house in

downtown Ann Arbor, and have been facing ‘new space’ challenges…

what this blog is about!  I have discarded, ruthlessly purged,

kept only the useful or beautiful and am finely able to find cyber time

(also important for yin yang in one’s apartment).  Here is an

arrangement I just hung of Bulgarian photos which I framed recently,

and love dearly, purchased from the photographer’s wife.

This photo is an iPhone photo, not perfect, but you get the idea.  The

chest of drawers holds my CD collection, stationery and hats and

scarves.  The ‘Zen of My Flat’ is a new challenge, and one that I am

enjoying.  More photos to come!

<p>prints + art

pop-deco:

Being a framer, I always have an over abundance of framed prints, and drawings.

The trick is getting it all out of hiding in a sensible  and attractive fashion.

This is one way…using the shelves to group framed prints, interspersing objets d’art.

It is not too formal, and can be added to or taken away easily.

White as a background

always works for me!

Not only do I love the white drawing-like painting in the room, but I especially like the splash of orange.  It is a ‘feel good’ color.  I relate it to the Sacral Chakra, SVADISTHANA, ones own abode (if you are into that). But if that is not  your thing,  it just adds a great punch to a room.  I use it in my space and it definitely has a pleasant effect.

Modern vintage works here with a fresh, solid colored new rug, light floors, new pillows and freshly painted walls and floors.  This is great!  I especially love the way the art is displayed.   Hanging a collection can be tricky, and here it is treated centering the three main paintings, then using the top edges of the bottom row and the bottom edges of the top row to create a cohesive look.

Black & White Collection

This is one of my favorite groupings. I would love this in my next ‘appartement’.

No Christmas is complete without a trip to La Belle Maison, Ann Arbor, MI.  After working at the gallery, I pick a local store each evening to Christmas shop in the week before Christmas.  This is one of my favorites.  They have French and British accessories for the apartment or home, along with bath and beauty items and French jewelry.  I especially like their vintage prints (Chanel framed print in photo).  The third photo is Megan wrapping my finds…two clear glass French Spencer cups and a lovely silver Good Luck Ring.

This is a great look look…the ultimate in clean lines.

I love everything about these rooms:  calm color scheme and eclectic accessories.  This stunning home belongs to Maria Øverby, a Norwegian ceramist.

This wall art is simple and effective.  The height that the pieces are hung works nicely as a backdrop to the seating in the room.
