The other day, I had an interior designer stop by to give me some ideas about my new home office. In the apartment, I didn’t have a home office as I had two bedrooms and used one to allow Tony to ‘inhabit’ while he was visiting from school. Now that I have a 3rd bedroom, I will have an office, done up like I want.
The rest of the house, I am pretty satisfied with. It has neutral colors, though not ‘apartment white’, but different shades of beige, sages, browns, etc. Very peaceful. However, the walls are rather naked and I was thinking of putting up some abstract art in places, and photographs in others. The designer suggested that I do all photographs. She said: You’re a photographer. Display your work all over your house.
Well, I thought about it and, really, I’ve never done it before. When I started (over)thinking about it, I thought about overall themes, frame types, frame colors, matte colors, etc – I’m still thinking about that stuff.
The funny thing is that you might think that it would be easy to choose a few, but with several thousands to look through, that might not be so easy. Also, I realize that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choices, just decisions to make.
I’m sure that some of you have hung your work before. Frames? No frames? Stretch canvas? My interior will be mostly ‘modern’, not traditional, or even ultra-modern/contemporary. So, if I do frames, I’m thinking that they will be plain black frames. Who knows – just thinking aloud.
