Do Your Walls Make You Happy?

Well, do they?  I think the things you hang on your wall should make you happy.  They should reflect your interests and your tastes.  They should put a smile on your face when you walk in the room.  



 


Last week, I worked with a client who had lovely art that wasn’t being displayed to its best potential. 




 

The client and her husband had lithographs and prints from their travels in Germany that had yet to be hung on the walls.   I created this grouping and had it hung in less than half an hour.   This is now the view when you walk in the front door and into their living room.


Even though there is more art on the walls, the overall look is less cluttered and much more interesting.  The art grouping makes you want to walk over and find out more about the story it has to tell.




Here’s an architectural nook of bookshelves on the other side of the living room that needed some attention, as well.  It was filled with momentos from their travels, as well as some family photographs.




By grouping objects meaningfully and adding books, this nook is more visually pleasing.  Each grouping tells a story.  Hopefully, it puts a smile on my client’s face when she walks into this room.



Are you having difficulty making your rooms come together?  Do you keep buying accessories but just aren’t satisfied with the way they work in your home?   Stop shopping and contact  The Decorologist to schedule home styling using all your own furniture and accessories.   I can help you use the things that are important to you in a more meaningful way and save you from making more costly purchases!

my walls do not make me happy. we have been in this house for over 6 years and i still do not have a lot on the walls. i have a hard time finding things i love enough to look at every single day…so instead, i look at large, empty walls. or i buy things but then never follow through with hanging them. hopefully this is the inspiration i need to get out the hammer and nails and just go for it.

Alexandra, thanks for the sneak peak – fun grouping!!! Jen, what do you have to lose? I say, just go for it. When you tire of it, you can change it or move it around. It’s not a tattoo!!! 🙂

so pretty! thanks for this inspiration. i know i can do this but have just struggled so much lately with my large scale walls. i just put up a plate grouping in the dining room but hate it. maybe i should have you do it instead.
you rock!

So nice! More purpose and less knick-knacky. The before picture made my eyes tired but the after is calming and pretty!
