I promised more artwork and this time want to show a beautiful way to display them. While a gallery wall can still be a great way to display art, for some of us it can be overwhelming to undertake. One of my favorite alternatives for displaying art, is layering selected prints on a shelf. I am drawn to this arrangement for its clean look and effortless aesthetic.
Art can be grouped by color, style, theme, or medium. It’s important to vary the sizes of the prints to layer and provide interest and depth to the arrangement. Check out these curated displays!
A soft wash of turquoise and accents of orange (and my favorites!)
This was a sample for a Chicago client, close to my heart.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I can’t get enough of the blue palette. With these pieces, I can almost feel the wind in my hair!
Romantic, dreamy prints that make me want to linger.
These bold prints are fun and energetic…would be great in an office space.

I recently finished a couple of spaces and fell in love with the artwork (there just isn’t enough wall space in my house!)
A South Loop loft with industrial accents. We used grays, yellows and blues in the design but not afraid of introducing a little more color in the artwork! For the display, two 4′ shelves were installed flush to each other for a real impact!
And there it is folks, those blues again! This time accented with gray foundational pieces. Here we installed two 3′ shelves to add more length.
Don’t forget the importance of a good art ledge. Here are some of my favorites!
Have fun in your displays but most of all start with pieces that speak to you.
