I spent this past Saturday helping pick out the finishing touches on a decor project in downtown San Diego. This Monday’s tips are inspired by our wall art project that we finally chose! We’ve been going back and forth about what we wanted to place on the wall behind the sofa. This (only a peek!) is what we chose and a couple of tips on artful grouping.
Tip: “Choose a theme, such as nature or travel, to link each piece to the others. Or, group the artwork by color. An eclectic series of photos in multiple sizes, for example, can still look unified if they’re all in black and white.”
Since the clients live in San Diego and directly across the street from the harbor, boasting harbor views, we wanted to bring the outdoors in and chose artwork with a beach/ocean theme. All the frames are the same, yet each photo is of a different shade in order to keep it from being too “matchy-matchy”. The farthest on the right is in color, the middle is a sepia tone and the left photo is in black and white. The 3 are unified by the underlying ocean theme, yet variety is created by varying the colors.
Tip: “Odd numbers of frames (3,5,7) create the most pleasing effect in a display. Place central pieces at eye level or slightly above on the wall, then expand your display outward from there.”
The space we were working with allowed us to hang 3 pieces of art, knowing that we wanted about each piece to be 2’x2′. We hung the artwork at eye level creating maximum viewing pleasure.
More project photos to come!

Its simple, yet effective. A lot of times its difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal view. GHB or gamma-hydroxbutyrate, navigate here penile implants.

Jami, I LOVE this. The photos behind the sofa are PERFECT and so gorgeous! I'm so glad you posted this because I have always wanted these types of decor tips. By the way, are you trying to kill me?! I miss San Diego soooo badly and so jealous they live by the harbor. I ADORE that place. 🙂

I love how it's the little pieces that anchor the larger pieces, and really put the finishing touches on everything and make it feel *cozy*.
Oh what a good idea, a very effective way to mix sepia, monochrome and colour.
