ILevel Creates Family Photo Walls in NYC

Many of ILevel’s clients have just returned from fabulous holiday trips and family gatherings, and their phones are full of precious photographic memories. Our staff of professional picture hangers has been hard at work helping clients create gorgeous family photo walls showcasing these holiday treasures. Here’s a peek at three family photo salon walls designed by ILevel for clients in New York City.

Select and Size

Overwhelmed by the awesomeness of all of your photos? We can help you select the best shots, and choose proper sizes. For this client, ILevel created a multi-story photo wall across two floors and up the stairs.

Print and Frame

Once you’ve selected your photos, we can take care of the printing and framing. This wall is held together with black frames, and the variety of frame sizes and shapes creates interest.

Hanging Artwork in the New York City Home of Jessica Chastain

We were fans of actress Jessica Chastain long before we were lucky enough to get to work in her home. But, working in her home made us even bigger fans. In case you haven’t seen the most recent issue of Architectural Digest where her New York City apartment was profiled, it’s absolutely stunning. She worked with interior designers Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, but informed much of the style direction herself, along with boyfriend and fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.

The home is decorated in classic Upper East Side fashion — most of the furnishings are from Ralph Lauren, giving the historic apartment an elegant,  timeless, aristocratic feel that is even more breathtaking in person. But unexpected twists– a fuchsia chair here, a suede wall covering there–make it anything but stuffy. We felt like this description was just as applicable to Jessica herself: she’s a timeless beauty and accomplished actress, yet still approachable and down-to-earth at the same time.

As for the art we hung on the walls: the couple keeps an interesting collection, a mis of high-end fine art, vintage mirrors, and estate sale pieces/ The mirror above the fireplace in the living room, for example, was from the estate of actress Lauren Bacall, and the Swedish-style mirror in the dining room is vintage. The paintings hung above the tub in the bathroom are by the notable Luxembourg painter Jacques Nestlé.

Where to Find Art in New York City this Fall

Summer is coming to a close, and as hard as it is to top weekends spent at the farmer’s markets of Brooklyn, the beaches of Long Island or the mountains of the Berkshires, one of the greatest things about New York City is that there is plenty to do that doesn’t require beautiful weather. As the air turns from crisp to cold, one of our favorite pastimes is exploring the New York art scene, from museums, to galleries, to special shows and exhibitions. Fall is an especially exciting time in the art world, too, because it’s when many of the city’s galleries and museums launch their new programs and exhibitions.

Get out your calendars and make note of these top spots to find art in New York City this fall.
