Gallery Walls Are Fun!

One of the most current trends in interior design is gallery walls. This hanging method is a great way to show off collections of different art items and create visual excitement in an area of your home! Framed works can be grouped by theme, size, or color, and the addition of objects such as masks, reliefs, tiles or mirrors can add some variation.

Tip: If possible, use the same type of glazing (glass or acrylic) on all of the framed pieces to even out their reflective quality. Non-glare or Museum Glass finishes can reduce or eliminate glare in areas with lots of windows. 

We helped a client install this fantastic gallery wall in her downtown apartment recently. The mix of shapes, colors, and sizes made it a challenging but fun puzzle! Even the lamp seems to be part of the final arrangement. Call us at 206.324.4742 to inquire about installation services.

Vintage Frame Repair

We are fortunate to have several staff members with talents that go beyond picture framing! Peter worked on this vintage gold frame for several hours to camouflage the extensive damage. He used silicone moulds to replicate some of the missing decoration in key areas. The casts were placed onto the frame, gessoed, and painted gold to match the original tone. A layer of antiquing glaze completed the repair. The frame was then set with a mirror and sturdy hangers were added so that the clients felt confident hanging this heavy piece in their home.
