Welcome back! As you know, I LOVE art -- it completes a room, makes a visual statement, evokes emotion and brings joy!
I'm excited to tell you a little bit about the process of how we selected art for this project. If you missed the previous posts - be sure to check out Part I- Bedroom Update and Part II - Behind the Design to see how this bedroom design came together.
After we came up with the final design concept. I sat down with my client (she's actually my client's daughter -- a young adult in college) to have a conversation about what type of art appealed to her.
She's very adventurous and loves to travel and art relating to places that she's been or dreamed of going to, inspired her.
We spent several hours, going through the art on Minted.com and pinning things that she was drawn to on a private pinterest board. We looked for muted tones so that the art would not compete with the bold blue and lavender that we already had in the room. Once we had all of the art selected, we reviewed each piece and made a graphic to see how the art would look together. We selected five pieces total.
We selected the top two pieces to flank the window and had them framed in the same size and in the same color frame. To balance the opposite wall, we created a grouping of the bottom three pieces. The Empire State Building and the French Architecture photographs are pulled together visually with the addition of the small abstract painting.
And that's how we completed the art process!
