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:

Collage Artist Clare Goddard at ILevel Studio

ILevel is pleased to showcase Clare Goddard at ILevel Studio. Clare describes her work for Remodelista. “I collect bits and pieces from junk shops and random things that people normally throw away—used train tickets, old letters and photos, packaging, rusty cutlery, odd buttons, scraps of fabric. These things have all served their purpose in the past, and I enjoy being able to bring them together to create something beautiful.”

Hand stitched paper with letter stamps

She sources objects from flea markets, from a client’s hoarding of family documents, or from friends and customers who collect things they think Clare will like. She combines the objects with natural materials like tar she makes in the Finnish forests, moose hair, charcoal, and paper. Clare recycles the objects, reinterpreting them, displacing them from their conventional situation and giving them a new contemporary role.

Tea collage with number stamps

Each piece is unique, and Clare often collaborates with individual clients. The resulting museum-like collages challenge the accepted past roles of the objects and their functionality.

Collaged botanicals, arrangement by ILevel

Clare is a British born artist/designer based in Derbyshire. A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, she exhibits and sells her work internationally with clients throughout Europe, North America, and Japan.

We have over 30 of Clare’s unique pieces at ILevel Studio, and all are surprisingly affordable. If you’d like to view her work in person, please contact David@ILevel.biz or call 212.477.4319.


8 Gorgeous Gallery Walls From Our Recent Clients

A few months ago, we talked about how we still haven’t gotten sick of the gallery wall. How, every time we hang one if one of our client’s homes, office spaces, or shops, it has a unique and personal look. It’s one of the things we love most about this photo arranging style and why we don’t think we’ll ever tire of it (or stop getting requests for it).

Further proof of just how diverse and beautiful gallery walls can be? These are some of the arrangements we’ve done for clients in the last few weeks alone.

This chic display reflects the contemporary feel of the client’s Manhattan apartment. Note the asymmetrical arrangement, which adds to the modern feel.

On the opposite end of the style spectrum sits this perfectly arranged assortment of Playbills.

This next photo mixes styles of art, frames, and media, proving one of the best things about gallery walls: there are no rules.

One of our all-time favorite types of project: The family photo wall.

We love how these photos pop against a jet-black wall. 

Here, a simple arrangement mixes a series of drawings in with the rest of the homeowner’s art collection. 

Finally, another example of a family photo wall, this time done in color with all-white gallery frames and mats.
