Baby Deer Photo Framed and Hung

Monday, December 27, 2010 · 2 Comments

After getting some of your thoughtful opinions (thank you!) on which photograph to add to the exposed brick wall in my living room, I decided on Baby Deer by animal photographer extraordinaire, Sharon Montrose. (If you’re not familiar with her work, her e-shop The Animal Print Shoppe is a must-see!)

I ordered a basic white frame and mat here to keep the look streamlined and inline with the other art on the wall. I played around with the placement of the photo but in the end settled on the design I had in mind from the beginning: one piece on the left and two aligned vertically on the right. I wanted the three pieces to read clearly as a group so even though the wall is large I spaced them pretty close together.

For now I’m content with the result and am putting down my hammer and nails. I am a serial re-arranger so like everything in our home this is a work in progress.
