As much as we’ve gotten done since we moved into this house a little over a year ago, I still have stacks of pictures yet to be hung and bare walls. It can sometimes take a while to figure what finishing touches each room needs. I finally took a bit of time this week to tweak the walls in the living room.
I already hung my Manet copy on the wall to the right of the large window and I liked how the touch of black tied into the curtain rods…
To balance that out, I hung a vintage clock and a pair of family silhouettes on the left side…
Jeff held up the silhouettes, so I could get an idea of how they worked before I put the nails in the wall. While he was holding them in place he asked, “Who are these people?”
“That’s your dad and your uncle.”
Again, I like the touches of black and how the wood of the clock ties into the dark wood frames on the chairs.
I also hung the sepia-toned family photos back in the stairway and mixed up the frames a bit more than the last time to give the arrangement an eclectic feel.
Now, I’m just waiting for our stairs to be finished, but that won’t happen until January…
…aaaand I’ll probably have to remove all of the pictures I just hung in the stairwell when that happens.
Working on a house can sometimes feel like taking two steps forward, one step back.
