The magnolia buds are on the trees, the forecast is for temperatures in the 70’s this week, and we’re beginning to peel off layers of outerwear. Spring has sprung in New York City, at ILevel Studio, and in the homes and offices of many of our clients. Walls are a perfect canvas for bringing a bit of that spring feeling inside. Here’s some inspiration to help you refresh and rearrange your walls to celebrate this lighter, brighter season.
Display the Props of the Season
Time to trade snow shovels for canoe paddles and stocking caps for straw hats. Or you can display these and other reminders of spring on your walls, as in these two great installations by ILevel. Select what reminds you of spring, whether it’s birds’ nests, collectible flower pots, or antique gardening tools, and imagine an arrangement that will revitalize your rooms.
Bring the Outside Inside
It’s best to get out and experience nature firsthand, but if you can’t make it outside, you can bring nature inside. This group of photos was shot by Jack Stadtlander, ILevel professional art installer and photographer. You can see his photos at ILevel Studio. You can find inspiration from the immense variety of nature-related wall art that’s out there, whether it’s botanical water colors, nature photography, or Clare Goddard’s collaged botanicals.
Change a Wall Color
One of the easiest ways to revitalize a room is to change one wall color. This antique medicine bottle collection stands out beautifully on this spring-inspired eggshell blue wall. Or if it’s too difficult to commit to one color, add several, as in this paint swatch wall with mini installations.
Add Pops of Color
ILevel recently installed these Andrew Zimmerman pieces from the Sears-Peyton Gallery in a client’s kitchen. These sculptures, automotive paint on wood, bring life and energy to this room.
Revitalize a Salon Wall
The beauty of a salon wall is that it can be rearranged or expanded any time. Spring is a perfect time to refresh your salon installations of personal photography to include photos from recent vacations, weddings, graduations, and the addition of new family members. Salon walls can include more than just photography. You can add special items like children’s art and important personal objects.
