These days, homes are getting bigger and grander, with high ceilings even in the finished basement. And that means taller stairwells.
Plus as homes get larger, one side effect is that the hallways connecting the bedrooms get longer. This raises a decorating problem: how do you make those stairwells feel human-scaled, and make the hallways appealing to walk through?
One of our clients came to us with a solution in hand. She had a very tall stairwell, so her interior designer recommended some very tall art... two panels which were each more than eight feet in height.
That's the photo she sent us when she requested an appointment... it gives a great sense of the size of these things. In fact, these pieces were so big that her husband was afraid they would be too big for the wall.
But once we put them in that big stairwell, it was clear that they were the perfect height.
The solution for a tall wall is, quite simply, big art.
But you can't hang something like this by yourself... it takes three people and special ladders to do it safely. That's what we're here for.
On the same project, the designer specified a wonderful solution for the long basement hallway: art to lead you along your journey.
You arrive at the bottom of the stairs to admire a nice trio that coordinates well with the big trees in the stairwell.
Then when you turn and walk to the guest bedroom, you're greeted by a mirror, with an intriguing diptych further along.
At the end of your stroll, you're rewarded by the depth and interest of these pieces.
Placing art is about creating views and experiences as you move through your home.
If you'd like each part of your home to be an immersive and intriguing experience, give us a call.
