There’s quite a bit going on in this room. It looks as though there is a little loft area next to the bed. Along that whole wall is a mural of black flowers and leaves. On the wall in the middle of the room, there are a few paintings that have the same colors in them as on the wall-that mint green color. The rest of the room is pretty simple and well designed.
Originally we started with a plasma cutter that Austin designed and built from tools and supplies he had available. It was a game changer for us and the signs created from this machine were so well made that people would ask us if they were laser cut. We now own a Bodor fibre laser cutter that guarantees quality cuts with the most intricate detail. Every new sign is pushing the envelope in design.
Everything about this room is unique. The first thing that I want to point out is the bed frame. They look like they are made from large pieces of wood, which wouldn’t be too difficult to recreate. Above the bed is a beautiful shot of city lights. If you don’t live near a city, this is a nice way to be able to look at the lights whenever you wanted to. The rest of the room is very masculine, especially with those end tables and the grey area rug.
This photo reminds me about a hot summer day lounging under the trees. I usually go hiking a lot in woods, so I see this sight many times. Looking at the image, I totally have this feeling, it is like I am lounging under a tree, almost feel the cool breeze on my face, which moves the branches of trees, and I can hear the vibration of leaves, the twittering of birds. This 5-panel image is absolutely realistic.
This is a very dark room, much like one of the ones from earlier. However, this room features a divider made from windows, which is pretty cool. If you notice, this would be the artwork that’s in the room, aside from the huge hanging thing in the middle of the room. The rest of the accents are black and grey and the window brings in enough light to make the room not so dark.
An obvious place to begin is with color. One trick of the trade many designers use it to pull an accent color from the rug, window treatments, or upholstery to work into artwork on the walls. In this way, everything in the room is subtly unified, even if you're layering with lots of patterns or experimenting with several different hues at once. Try purple wall art that speaks to the sheer curtains on the windows; violet poppies make this warm shade sing, especially when the floral plaques themselves are placed on an opposite wall.
Once you have an idea of a general spot, frame out the area with painter’s tape to visualize the spot. Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this; maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there’s a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.
