Eric Cohler Design
I'm not a huge fan of picture frames (they bring back bad memories of my OU dorm room decked in Party Pics), so I don't keep a lot of photos sitting out. A couple of years ago, my mom gave me some old family photographs and they've been collecting dust at the top of my closet. So I rounded up more from my mother-in-law and headed to BWC (a photo finishing shop in Dallas) to get everything reprinted in black and white or soft sepia tones. Then off to a custom framer who helped me choose complementing white mats and a variety of frames, all in silver so the grouping would tie together.
I played around with the arrangement on the floor a few times before picking up the hammer and nails. There aren't any "rules" to follow with a gallery arrangement, but I did rely on this great read which has great pointers for hanging photos in your home.
So, I've checked off the first of many projects in 2011. What's at the top of your home to-do list this year?
