Happy New Year!
Since we're embarking on a brave new era (and perhaps feeling the effects of too much sparkling cider) I thought it would be a good time to share this wonderful collection of vintage Champagne posters which we hung recently in a local home.
Look at the color on this pretty lady.
When our client first sent us the photos of this vintage art, I thought this was just a small piece like you see in poster racks at frame shops. Fortunately she explained beforehand that it was over seven feet tall. (If you're planning to hire us, measurements are super helpful to help us plan our jobs. They don't have to be 100% accurate, but it makes a big difference to have an estimate of size.)
And in person, this picture is literally larger than life. This was the largest of her collection, and it's really fun to see how a large-scale piece like this can change your experience of the room.
Collecting different posters from the same genre is an easy way to create a cohesive collection, and if you use reproductions, it can also be very cost-effective to fill a wall. Here are a few other pieces we installed in the same home... I really love the elegant couple dancing on a gramophone.
That one went in this sunny dining room. And notice how the homeowner tied the trumpet shape of the gramophone speaker in with the glass lilies on the table. Together with the golden chandelier and wall sconces, the whole effect was very glam.
Across from the stairwell, we hung this peacock-themed green poster high up on the wall... another example of using a big poster to fill up large space. This one was about five feet tall.
The only drawback to hanging large art like this is that it can be difficult to do on your own, especially when you're installing art in a stairwell.
Fortunately we've got the ladders (and the team) to make it happen quickly and easily. Give us a call to get started.
