Sometimes it’s the color that gets ya!
My client and I were meeting to determine how she wanted to display her tweens’ portraits from a recent session. Although she has two big beautiful canvases upstairs that I created from her kids’ sessions 5 years ago, she was really drawn to frames from the Organic Bloom. She was looking through my color samples and came upon the color Rhubarb.
As unconventional as it may seem, the main floor powder room is where we finalized displaying her artwork. It’s the first room the family sees walking in their door, and a powder room certainly gets used every day!
The client’s home is a 1949 colonial with original burgundy and gray tile that is typical of that era. The house is set in an historic district neighborhood of the Woodward Corridor.
A long time book club participant, the kids’ mom also uses the powder room bookshelves to house all her past book club selections. It makes the space full of color, despite the primarily gray walls!
The art piece is a 12×18 Organic Bloom frame in the Ellie style in Rhubarb, which fits perfectly in scale and color with this room.
Who says portraits have to be in “traditional” rooms of the house? I personally love portraiture in the bathrooms. After all, bathrooms are rooms we use every day!
[disclaimer! I only had my cell phone to shoot these room views! I promise that these shots do not do the room or artwork justice! But hey, they always say the best camera is the one you actually have with you, right?]
