Arranging Pictures - Do You Have A Big Boring Wall??
About Renée Finberg
I have been in this business since the age of 22.
I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.
Design Challenges are great.
And because of those challenges
I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,
Designed and Manufactured Furniture,
Created Fantastic Window Treatments,
And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues
With my unique style.
If I can't find it, I create it.
My rooms would make excellent movie sets.
I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.
Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.
Just Great Design.
Just imagine how it would be if each of us,
If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be
Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,
The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

These are all fabulous.. I must say I find the 5th image interesting.. I would consider it, using a large image of an ocean view, behind my desk.. speaking of desk, image 9, the glass top buffet table as desk with those lamps..love it..!ReplyDelete
Have decided to do an entire wall in my conservatory in brown/white transferware ironstone.ReplyDelete
All walls will be getting several sconce type shelves for ivy topiaries.
Will use your method of the biggest platters in the middle then work outward.
Now, when to get the time for this project?

yes - i'm not much of a planner this way (hanging up brown paper cutouts to get the layout just right) -i had a hammer, nails and a glass of wine and just WENT for it one afternoon right after moving in. It looks just great -you just have to use your EYE.ReplyDelete
Great examples Renee! I also love the idea of one large focal work of art!ReplyDelete
Art by Karena
We adore these images. They offer so much inspiration for a wall we are working on! Hope you have a beautiful week!ReplyDelete

This is a keeper post, am bookmarking it. When I move I will want to refer back here for inspiration...so many fabulous images here, Renee! Why have a blank wall when you can have one with so much personality?ReplyDelete
I want to do something like this, just the thought of where to begin starts to overwhelm me. Darling, if I could afford to fly you up, I would!ReplyDelete
that sounds divine.
when you DO do it.
take pics and share them with us xxx
someday....you NEVER know.
I love these galleries, so much visual interest! I'm trying to make a gallery of small round mirrors in our living room. I have eight so far, but I'm thinking nine would be better, aren't uneven numbers always better?ReplyDelete
Very lovely post, poor me I keep hanging and rehanging every new painting, I have that crooked look, That's me half cocked.ReplyDelete
This is great for everyone to learn from. People need visuals because if you tryed to explain the display it would be misunderstood. My wall is in a stairway, less light is there and that helps preserve photo's, artwork, and special items from aging to much.
Sing it Sister!ReplyDelete
My Prob.....little to no wall space for the ever encroaching goodies that find me!
you are so cute!!!
I love a picture gallery, and have one myself. I must confess that I love the design of the one going up the staircase, and yes, it must have been done by an engineer...wish I could see with the actual images!!ReplyDelete
I loved them all...but...I did just want to jump in to the screen and straighten some!!!!! I, will also, bookmark this page because there will not be a blank wall in the new house if I intend keeping all the art, photos, and bits that I currently have!!!!! xoxoReplyDelete
this is crazy but true.
i was thinking of you soooooooooo hard yesterday.
and it manifest itself in you contacting!!!
there is something to this stuff!!
xxx love you - a giant long hug
Love these busy walls Renee...the more the better....xvReplyDelete
How very conceptual that stairway; it should be left just that way! We always called our less precise technique eye-balling.ReplyDelete
le style et la matière
Such nice inspiration here. I do have one big wall in my family room which is filled with probably 60 8x10's all in the same frame of different pictures we ahve taken over the years as a family, friends, our dogs,etc...and I had them all done in black and white and i never get tired of looking at them, nor does anyone else..its the first thing people go to when they come over.ReplyDelete
You are so right I have been afraid of my big walls in my foyer for yrs. I've been thinking of doing just what you showed. Not sure if all of what I have is art though? hahaReplyDelete
you have a lovely blog…I like your writings and words...Please check out my blog.I am having a Giveaway in my blog..Please check it out and partcipate in that..
I love a gallery wall but I like it to look thought out. I don't much care for the hodge podge look, or the kiddie pictures all over the place, it begins to look cluttered and I don't feel good when there is clutter all around. I will say that I DO need more on my walls, but picking out art is like picking out rugs...I get nervous!ReplyDelete
I would love to see your place!
