Sunlight, Fog and Redwoods Trail….

One of our clients was looking through Byron’s images for a project they were working on and they really liked it so I thought that I would share it here. #redwoods #interiordesign #decor

Since my prints are on display all over the world, I don’t get to see the installations of my artwork very often. A few of my clients have sent me some images of how they have used my artwork!  Here is a small sampling of the places my prints have been installed:

We all have a favorite piece of nature photography that we love, or home decor photos that we want to display to beautify our homes and just simply enjoy.  Some of us are collectors and buying that next gorgeous piece of art photography that we’ve found is just too hard to resist.  But now we are left with the question of what to do with it all.  We only have so much wall space, right?  Well the good news is, there are a number of ways to display these cherished pieces without taking up every square inch of wall space.  When you need something a little different, be sure to try out one of these cool ideas for getting your art off the wall!

One obvious solution that has become very popular is to display art on a shelf.  There are even specially designed shelves available that have an edge on the front to keep your art from sliding off.  Arrange a single photo or an arrangement on a shelf and see how effective it is.

Take a hint from the artist himself, and try displaying a piece of art on a freestanding easel.  An unused corner of space can suddenly become the focal point of the room.  Easels come in a variety of materials from shiny aluminum to highly polished ebony.  Choose an easel that compliments your art and matches your room for a very dramatic effect.

Another thing to do when using photos for decorating is to try and downsize your prints somewhat so they can be placed on bookshelves or other decorative shelving.  Arranging a few photographs among the spines is a great way to break up the monotony of a bookshelf.

Try putting some art in chunky freestanding frames that can sit proudly on a piano, in a curio cabinet or even on open kitchen cabinets.  After all, looking at our art gives us pleasure and should be all around us.

Large pieces of framed art can even be displayed on the floor.  Lean a large picture against the wall and arrange some smaller pieces in front.  This type of display is especially effective with country style frames in a more rustic setting.  Create a little vignette by adding a vase, sculpture or other decorative piece to the arrangement of pictures.

Floor screens that are designed to hold photos or art are another option for displaying pictures once your walls are full.  The advantage of one of these types of frames is that they allow you to display a large number of photos in one place.

If you’re both an art collector and a craftsman, you may want to create a table that displays some of your favorite pieces.  For this, your art is displayed under a piece of glass that is fitted to the top of your coffee table.  Instead of picking up that coffee table book, you can admire your mini art collection every time you sit down to relax!

For various reasons, most of us are timid when it comes to arranging art on our walls.  We love to use photos for decorating, whether they are our own or purchased art, but we tend to procrastinate before getting out that hammer and hangers.  It is a fear definitely born out of uncertainty.  What if we don’t like where we put them?  What if we make a mistake and make all those holes for nothing?  How can we be sure they won’t be too high or too low? What if they just plain don’t look right? Here are some simple guidelines to making the home decor photos that you want to display end up arranged just the way you want them.

1.    Before beginning, try to visualize the end design.  Some people cut out paper shapes that match their art pieces and do a mock arrangement on the wall to test it out.

2.    Art should be hung at “eye” level.  Obviously everyone’s eyes are not at the same level so an average rule of thumb is between 54 and 57 inches from the floor.  Art is generally hung a little lower in dining rooms where most of the time is spent seated.

3.    Arrange similarly framed pieces together for a formal presentation, and mismatched frames for a more casual look, but all the frames in an arrangement should complement each other in some way.

4.    If you are hanging a single picture over a piece of furniture, the art should not be wider than the piece.  Half the width of the furniture is ideal.

5.    Smaller home decoration photos look best arranged together rather than grouping with larger pieces.

6.    Pictures should be hung no closer than three inches together and no farther apart than eight inches.

7.    When arranging art over a table, remember to hang it so that the bottom pictures are not blocked by items that will be sitting on the table.

8.    The “heavier” pieces of art should be placed in the bottom of the arrangement.  Heavy can refer to the size, framing materials or even the color of the photograph.

9.    Art arrangements do not need to be symmetrical.  Here’s where using the paper shapes you’ve cut out can help you choose the best layout for the wall you are decorating.

10.    Finally, remember this is your art.  You are the one who is going to be looking at it the most.  Arrange it in a way that you like and that will make you smile every time you’re in the room.

When you first move into a new space, or when you redecorate a space you already live in, choosing the right artwork for the walls is one of the best parts of it all.  One of the things many homeowners enjoy is decorating with realistic, eye catching and inspirational works of art photography.  With their warm, natural colors and striking composition, these works of art make exceptional photos for decorating.

Too often, however, our artwork sits waiting to be hung because we are intimidated by the process.  There are ways to guarantee picture hanging success.  Here are just five of the most valuable.

1.     Sometime ahead of picture hanging day, assemble all the artwork you want to hang.  Decide which style of hangers you will be using for each one and make a list of supplies.  Visit your local framing, hardware, or craft store and purchase everything you need.  There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding which type of hangers to use.  Heavy and large pieces of art and objects like mirrors should be hung with mirror hooks.  Smaller photos for decorating can be hung with wire and eye hooks on the back.  Picture hangers are packaged according to the weight they will support, so be sure to buy the right size.

2.    Your next step is to think through your arrangements and placements of all the pictures you are hanging.  Be certain of how and where you want them before you begin.  This would be the time to arrange paper templates of your artwork and get everything just right.

3.    The next step is the tricky one, and one that many people debate over.  Do you measure out where your artwork goes, or do you just put it where you like it.  The choice is really up to the individual.  If you have used paper templates then you only need to mark where the template is to know the location for your hanger.

4.    Now that you have the picture hook in the right place, hang your art and see how it looks.  Straighten and level all pictures, either by sight or using a small level.  If a picture is a little too high or low, you can fix it by adjusting the wire on the back a bit.

5.    The final little touch that many people overlook is adding the small rubber or plastic bumpers to the corners of your pictures to keep them in place.  We all know how annoying it can be to have a picture that we have to constantly be straightening.  These little bumpers make that a problem of the past!

Now there is nothing left to do but stand back and admire your picture hanging talent, except maybe to get online and start searching for your next awesome piece of nature photography!
