stacked art...

domino




 

I do like art walls, but I really like the effect of a vertical row of art.  My favorite antique dealers/friends recently featured two modern art pieces stacked one on top of another with an antique starburst mirror at the top. All of this was over a mantel. Heaven....

I like the different frame sizes stacked and with a starburst mirror at the top, I'll bet that is amazing! Have a terrific day Donna.

HI Donna

I love a vertical hang and a salon hang!
and you know what else I like?...A picture rail 'hang'...and I also adore art just nonchalantly leaning against the wall!

I don't know which I love more - the first or the last photo.
I had forgetten about the Domino photo and it's just so well done - interiors are gorgeous and the composition of the image is lovely.
But the last photo .... jeez!! A canvas tent style canopy over a bed covered in fur (!) .... white floors, the art, the round window .... I just love love love.

I think this adds so much character to a space- especially when the frames are different sizes and different stains.

I hope you have a great week!

I don't remember that first one from Domino, so it's like a little Monday morning gift. Thank you!

I wanted to do this in our bedroom but I hadn't seen it before and I thought it'd be weird. Thanks for sharing and making me feel better about doing it!

I love stacked art too, I tend to do it with similar pieces, but recently did this in my sisters house with completely different pieces and it looks great.

I love stacked art too, and vertical can be oh so dramatic. We once hung three different starburst mirrors vertically in a stairwell and it was fabulous.

Love stacked art and these images. Would love to see the modern art & starburst mirror of your friend. The bed with the fur spread in the last pic is gorgeous!

Love this look as well! I have been collecting frames to do something similar in my new hallway!
I especially love the different styles of frames!

So needed to thank you for all of your gray resources my fiend!
The paint color I ended up with in my closet and for my new kitchen cabinets is right off your lists!

Have a wonderful week!
Donna

I share your love for stacked art (almost anything stacked, really). Lovely pics & inspirational as I unpack art that has been in storage for almost three years. j

I love to mix art as you know, but when I see that first image I feel that I need to mix even more! So lovely.

Such beautiful rooms. I love artistic homes (no surprise there..) and the way these rooms display art is wonderful.

Darling. I am spooning out a little love over at my corner today. Please pop over when you have a moe.

Lots of love and hugs
