Our Favorite Family Photo Walls

Family photo walls are one of our favorite projects to work on (and they also happen to be something we specialize in). We love helping families curate a daily reminder of their favorite memories, while also creating a beautiful display. Throughout the years we’ve built family photo walls in all sorts of styles, from colorful and casual, to tightly curated and gallery-like. 

If you’re looking for inspiration for your family photo wall, take a cue from some of our favorite projects from the past. 

A breakfast nook doesn’t get much more cheerful than a bright orange banquette and the shining faces of your family through the years.

Here, a selection of black and white photography in black and white frames creates an elegant display on a staircase.

This client turned a hallway into a gallery of family history. The photos, in both color and black and white, are given a cohesive feel with matching white frames. 

This arrangement is similar to the one above, but mats were added for a fine-art feel.

One of our favorite ways to add personality and fun to family photo walls? Include children’s artwork in the mix, like in this gallery below.

For a sleek and modern style, this client chose to hang black and white photography against a black wall.

Retail Store Decor: A New York City Dog Salon

We’ve talked before about the importance of choosing the right art for a retail store design. The pictures on the walls in any shop not only reinforce its brand and inform its overall atmosphere, but can affect the way customers feel about their experience from the moment they walk in.

This next project, which we recently completed in a New York City dog salon, is the perfect example of a job well done. The salon owners had gathered portraits of canine “clients” and had them professionally printed, which both showed off the work they’d done and was also just downright adorable. We’re pretty sure that any customer–either canine and human–who visits the salon will feel both instantly welcome, and instantly cheerful. Here’s a closer look at this fun space. 


We created multiple gallery walls in the space, both symmetrical and not, which makes the storefront feel less formal. To create a balance between the two walls, we opted to hang the neat, grid style arrangement on the bold yellow wall, and hang the more-fluid feeling arrangement on the simple white wall.

How adorable are these photos?

Outdoor Art Exhibits Around New York City This Summer

New York City isn’t exactly know as a place for outdoor enthusiasts. Many of the best reasons to visit or live in New York–galleries, museums, restaurants, shopping, theater–are indoors. But if you prefer to spend the warm summer months with the sun shining on your face (we don’t blame you!) there are still many ways to enjoy New York outdoors, too. One of our favorites is touring the city’s many outdoor art events that take place each summer season. Here’s a quick rundown of a few of the best.

The High Line. The High Line is always a sure bet for art lovers and fresh air fanatics alike. This summer’s art installation, Wanderlust, features sculptural works centered around a theme of exploration and adventure by a variety of artists.

PsychoBarn at the Met. This year’s exhibit on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is unlike anything you’ve ever seen … at least in real life. Artist Cornelia Parker has created her rendition of the iconic Batse Hotel from the movie Psycho.

Coney Island Art Walls. One of New York’s most famous outdoor attractions is getting a new exhibit this summer: The Coney Island  Art Walls will feature murals from 21 different street artists.
