Perfect Picture Hanging Turns a House into a Home

Many ILevel clients come to us having just finished renovating a home or moving into a new place. We are often the last people on the scene, adding the final touches to a renovation or move. We’ve been told that after we’ve provided our professional art installation services a new space truly feels like home. Here’s how we’ve worked with clients in recent days to bring a warm, personal feeling to living spaces through art placement and installation.

Salon Walls With Variety

Salon walls are expressions of our experiences and tastes, and they are a great way to make a room feel uniquely ours. When viewed individually the pieces in the salon below might not feel related. ILevel’s designer/installers created this salon wall to bring all of the pieces together in a cohesive and striking arrangement that feels like it could only belong in this room. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salon Walls with a Theme

Deconstructed, brilliant orange Gracie wallpaper makes a statement in this themed salon installation. Choosing related images for a salon wall instantly creates a unified look. The images on each panel and their arrangement draw you in, a bit like a puzzle that you can endlessly rearrange in your mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unique Pieces 

What you to choose to put on your walls says a lot about you. ILevel recently installed this Paul Vallinksy sculpture in a client’s home. This kaleidoscope of butterflies, made from aluminum (found cans) and wire, is an example of a piece that adds a finishing touch to this space, in addition to beauty, whimsy, and a wish for flight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family Photo Walls

Few art installations are more personal than family photo walls, and this one is a gorgeous example. The eclectic mix of frames and frame sizes winds up this staircase and around the arched window telling the story of this family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art in Every Room

Spaces like game rooms and bathrooms are sometimes overlooked when it comes to art installation. This light, modern space is perfect for a ping pong table. The colorful artwork amps up the energy, spark, and personality in this room.

It’s Family Photo Wall Season

In about a month, you may feel completely overwhelmed by the 3,000 photos you’ve taken of your kids, your family reunion, that weekend at the beach. You might wish for help selecting and displaying the best of these photos on your walls so that you can remember and relive the fleeting moments of summer.

That’s where ILevel can lend a hand. You can come to us at any stage of the family photo wall creation process. We’ll help you select, size, print, frame, and of course, install your pictures to create a gorgeous wall of personal photography. Just like these happy clients.

Wall of Frame: All black frames, all color photos, sisters, family vacations, this extensive wall holds together beautifully down this long hallway.

 

Brady Bunch Grid

A bright yellow accent wall, unframed color puppy portraits in a precise Brady Bunch grid, balanced by a more fluid arrangement. Absolutely pawerful!

 

Contemporary Classic: A mix of black and white and color photos in gold frames. The contemporary wallpaper jazzes up this classic display.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under and Over the Rail: The picture rail becomes a design element in this clean, modern arrangement. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Space to Breathe: The space between these carefully selected photos allows you to consider each frame. And the seemingly random arrangement (though it’s always by design) brings intrigue to this stairway corner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Room To Grow: This diamond shaped arrangement can be easily added to as this young family grows. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We love the topic of family photo walls so much, we’ve covered it before. For a look back:

The Professional Art Hanging Process, During and After

Usually we post photos of our finished professional art hanging projects. Today we have rare shots of the process as it’s unfolding. Here’s Jack working with this collection of Damien Hirst spot paintings. First, he lays out this salon style installation on the floor where he can work with the pieces like a jigsaw puzzle to find the most appealing arrangement. He’s paired up some similar pieces by spot size and frame size, and will place many pieces with an equal amount of space between frames to create consistency. Yet there are some pieces that defy these rules, proving that this installation is a work of art requiring a designer’s eye to make it sing.

(DIY pro tip: do try this at home. Laying out your pieces first allows you to play with different arrangements without damaging your walls.)

Next up, Jack carefully installs the pieces he’s prearranged. As you can imagine, this is much more difficult than it looks. There’s tremendous technical skill involved in transferring this design from the floor to the wall. This includes accurate measuring, drilling, and leveling to maintain the integrity of the design, plus handling the pieces properly as they go up on the wall.

Ta da, flash forward to the final gorgeous installation! Of the Spot paintings conception, Hirst explains: “To create that structure, to do those colours, and do nothing. I suddenly got what I wanted. It was just a way of pinning down the joy of colour.” And this arrangement pins down the joy of an art installation job well done.
