Met Monday

I have been busy with life in general and have not be posting regularly, I apologize for that.
Welcome again to Met Monday hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch. This week I am going to show you an upstairs office mini makeover. This first pictures are the before. The color had already been chosen and was painted on the wall. Such a warm and wonderful mustard color. The venetian mask was obtained in Venice Italy and is just beautiful and vibrant. It needed it own space on this wall. The Asian hand painted silk print was a gift from her daughter from Korea. I matted and re framed this print and others.

This wonderful chair and ottoman was purchased at Thomasville warehouse and my client just adores it. It needed to be accompanied by a wonderful wall of family photos. Below are some of the photos that I re matted and framed for the wall.

Here are the photos re framed and in the prominent place in the office. The lamp and table were already in the room in different areas. They made a great addition to this corner. ( the fabric in the corner are the window treatments which could not be hung yet oops)

The picture at the top in the center was an antique photo of three sisters, one of them her mother. It is a beautiful picture and we re framed this also to bring out the girls and colors.

It was a treat to be able to use the entire space for these photos. Making a wall collage of photos can be a little tricky. The easiest to find out how to place the photos is to make the collage on the floor next to the wall make all your changes on the floor with all the spacing and then transfer each one to the wall. It is better to vary the sizes and frames to add interest. There is one gap to the left for another antique photo of her dad that needed a new frame.
This cozy corner is now a wonderful reading and relaxing area away from the rest of the home. Next week I hope to had a picture of the window treatment we put in this room.
Thank you for joining me in another wonderful Met Monday. Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for other wonderful makeovers.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Thanksgiving to all.
