Art School

Friday, December 01, 2006

One regular feature on this site that won’t have to do with the renovation of the apartment in Brooklyn will be called 'Art School.' All these posts will be great ideas that I have come across for wall art. To kick things off here are two unconventional twists on a salon wall.

I love this idea from the December/January issue of Metropolitan Home. The owner of the home that this wall is in was inspired by Graham & Brown’s Frames wallpaper, which was not available stateside at the time. So instead she just used a marker to draw frames directly onto her wall. The article notes, “Many of the photos were blown up to fit the unconventional frames and mix nicely with wrapping paper scraps and the children’s artwork, all of which were stuck to the all and sealed with gloss medium (available at any art supplier.)” Love, love, love it.

I’m also crazy for this clever framing project featured in the December issue of Living Etc. (which is my absolute favorite magazine, by the way). All the frames have been painted to match the wall for a unique look. What a great way to make a collection of mismatched, inexpensive frames into a dynamic display, no?
