A colorful art wall

I installed the art wall in the new dining room I am working on today. Remember the project where I am moving the dining room into the living room and turning the dining room into a sitting room?

To remind you, the inspiration for the new dining room colors started with a stunning painting that my clients acquired on a trip to Cannes. The plan was to hang the painting above the new sideboard.

But after having it framed it was decided that it would look better in the new sitting room.

They have a lovely eclectic mix of art that we have had framed over the years and so with the new sideboard in place, I was able to put together a collection to hang above it. I started by measuring the width of the sideboard and then laying out the different pieces of art on the floor until I got the look I wanted.

I photographed it with my iPad so I would have a reference if I forgot my "plan".

I love that it is colorful and unique. What pleases me the most is that the clients love every single piece of art and each one has a special meaning to them. Bringing their art together in one place not only gives a huge visual impact, but makes this new dining room a special place for their family to gather. 

Happy Saturday everyone!
