Parlor Installation

This installation was a 6-month project in the making. The client and I decided that their collection of b&w photos was the perfect fit for the polished plaster walls. By framing the photos with new silver leaf frames, light and reflection brought the necessary pop to the dark corner. Throughout the project, tolerances were a constant reminder to pay close attention to detail. We also had to take into consideration the soon to be installed parlor lights. Using some blue tape to mock up the walls helped us with our spacing decisions before ordering the frames. For the best results, it is always better to have an overall odd number of pieces. This way your arrangement doesn't appear too ridged. We decided four on the left side and 5 on the right side made for the best appearance. It is also important to consider a balance of landscape and portrait orientation in an arrangement of art. As you might be able to tell from the photos there is a greater amount of space on the left wall. These choices were intentional and allowed for the best arrangement without having too busy of a wall. It also created the best effect when entering the room with consideration of foreshortening. Our results are subtle upon first glance, however, they are elegant and considered

without taking away from the plaster walls. Please let us know if you have any questions about a similar project you might be doing. Thank You! -Dustin
