Before and After Photos from Recent ILevel Projects

Why are before and after photos so satisfying? Maybe it’s because we like to see order emerging from chaos, or we enjoy looking at the results of a job well done. ILevel project sites are busy places, and while we always get the shot of the finished project, we don’t always capture the scene before the ILevel art installers work their magic. In these recently completed project photos, you’ll see ILevel’s professional picture hangers transforming New York City apartments, before and after, one wall at a time.  

Family Photo Walls, ILevel’s Bread & Butter

I’ll kick things off with this multi-generational family photo wall with a mix of black & white and color photos in eclectic frames. Large portraits of the matriarch and patriarch anchor this dynamic wall that even includes the family dog. As you know from previous posts, laying the arrangement out on the floor is one key to design success (and minimizing unwanted holes in the wall). The variety of types of photos, poses, and people featured in this wall make it very intriguing to look at. Here it is on the floor, and on the wall.

Photos of Tantalizing Treats

Here we see a large installation of photos of food, from cakes and pies to pasta and a crown rib roast. While we didn’t obey the 3 second rule, this salon installation is delicious to look at, first on the floor, and reflected in this mirror after installation on the wall.

A Grid In Progress

Staying with the topic of treats, here’s a grid featuring colorful cocktails. ILevel’s mixologists laid this grid of 48 photos out on the floor, then transferred it to the wall using precise measurements to create this perfectly shaken and stirred design.

And a Pop of Color

This print of colored squares brings life to this otherwise neutral room. We love how simple changes can make a big impact.

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.

ILevel at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House

In case you missed it, here’s a chance to see ILevel’s work in six rooms at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. This annual event brings together top design talent under one roof to benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. ILevel provides professional art installation services for the designers who create these gorgeous spaces. Here are some of the designers with whom ILevel was pleased to collaborate this year.

Philip Mitchell Design created this comfortably luxurious sitting room. The focal point blue velvet sofa and surrounding chairs feature 26 pillows in 26 different patterns. We couldn’t get enough of the details in this room, including a collection of glass paperweights, brass candlesticks, and one of our favorite features, an upholstered deer head with antlers. ILevel hung 36 pieces of art on the walls including an early 60s photograph of Lee Radziwill looking as if she fully inhabits this room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson created this gold toned living room with adjacent bar. Mix a drink, take a seat in the coveted corner of the wrap around sofa, and contemplate the fabulous draped chandelier. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Alessandra Branca’s breezy sitting room, ILevel installed a photograph of a Rhode Island beach by Tina Barney. This photograph works like a window in this room. I feel like I’m in a summer house gazing at my beach view.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a glimpse of David Netto’s living room, “Cherry Bitters,” with distinctive tobacco-colored walls, white wrapped books, modern furniture and pops of color.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ILevel installed this collection of hand carved wooden canes in an alcove of Stefan Steil’s room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brian del Toro designed this peaceful, feminine bedroom using an antique screen as inspiration for his color palette of green and taupe with accents of pink, blush, and rose.
