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.

ILevel Installs for Mr. Brainwash & It’s A Thing

Poster for ItsAThing

We had the pleasure of working with friend of ILevel Nicola Stephenson recently on her collaboration with Los Angeles based street artist Mr. Brainwash. Nic created It’s A Thing, a new organization focused on changing perceptions and raising funds for head and neck cancer. 60,000 people are diagnosed with head and neck cancer each year, yet many Americans have little to no knowledge of this disease.

The inaugural event for It’s A Thing was a visual art experience of Mr. Brainwash’s work that took over 10,000 square feet of the iconic Starrett-Lehigh building.

All of the art in the exhibit pays homage to the vital functions made possible by the head and neck. Walking through the galleries you’ll see sculptures of headless angels, neon lights with positive messages like “Keep Smiling,” over-sized, multi-colored gumballs, and typewriters inviting viewers to sit down and tap away. ILevel installed many pieces in the exhibit, including the gallery wall seen below.

Net proceeds from the exhibit will be donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “Since my fight with head and neck cancer just two and a half years ago, I have been eager to give back to the incredible specialists at MSK that supported me throughout my journey,” Stephenson explains. To donate, or bid and buy Mr. Brainwash’s work and merchandise, visit itsathing.org.

The Most Original Wall Art We’ve Ever Hung

We’ve hung thousands of works of art over the years, but some works and arrangements have stuck with us because of their originality, beauty, or just plain strangeness. If you’re looking for inspiration for what to put up on your walls, take a creative cue from this list of the most original wall art we’ve ever hung.

Three-dimensional wall art always adds an extra-special element of interest to a room, but this swirling, life-size piece is one of the best examples we’ve seen.

In this home, we meticulously hung rings that resembled Life Savers candies in neat rows to create a graphic, and indisputably original wall art arrangement.

It can be hard to find a different way to express a decor theme that’s as ubiquitous as “nautical,” but these ships’ wheels strung from a ceiling is one way to do it.

This space, designed by Eric Cohler, was one of the grandest and most beautiful we’ve worked in, only partially attributed to the wall art hung in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows.

While the wall art itself isn’t entirely one-of-a-kind, it’s the juxtaposition against bold floral wallpaper here that makes this art arrangement so special.

Who says you have to have all four corners of your wall art on the wall? This perpendicular arrangement adds depth and interest to simple pieces.
