What defines the Perfect Home Office for you?

Everyone has their own vision of what the PERFECT OFFICE means to them.  The color scheme, design style, and organization are all things that are brought into account when trying to plan out the perfect working space.  I have moved around a few times the past 5 years living in high rise apartments downtown Chicago to moving down south to Texas.  Each space I have lived in had a unique room or area perfect to make of my design magic happen.  I still need to upload pictures of my own home but have pulled together some inspiration boards with unique color schemes and furniture selections.   For further information on product please email me  divaonadimeinteriors@gmail.com

Make A Statement in Black & White

Gallery Walls are a fancy way to describe a collage or collection of art and or photos you enjoy to decorate your walls. I know in a previous post I said there is no”right way” to do a frame wall, and I still stand strong to that statement.   I like them neat and tidy. I like them fresh and modern or old and traditional.  There are endless opportunities to make your wall look spectacular.

Today’s post is all about Black and white photos and how to depict a certain mood from these photos.  I chose “Old Hollywood” as my main focus for all of my pictures chosen for my frame wall.  As you can see I found pictures of many old school Hollywood actors and actresses that I have found I could most relate to them personally and their films.  I have always had a huge passion for Jackie Kennedy and her personal style so I added her into the collection as well.

I have also done black and white photo walls with old pictures of family members for clients.  One of my most favorite projects was taking each family member: great grandmother, grandmother, mother, daughter, and her daughters wedding photographs and framing them in beautiful gold and black frames like pictured above.

As far as the back drop or color of the frame wall itself I would go with a neutral color or a bold pattern like the one above.  I would only do a bold pattern with 2 colors max and something pretty linear to the frames.  I would also only do a bold pattern if all the pictures are black and white because the pattern will make more of a bold statement that way.

I hope this helps all of my design divas this holiday season on preparing your home for guests and making it as beautiful as you are 😉
