Layering


I have so many framed things at my house and not enough wall space I might just have to start layering like they did here.  I'm really liking the layered look lately. 

Do you like the look?

I love the look and have done it, but it's difficult because you are inevitably covering up part of the piece of art or photo. And I love all my art - I hate covering any of it up!

this is great! i have anxiety when it comes to hanging things, so this is a great way to avoid the panic attack...layering and placing seems less stressful! (and it looks great!)

I love this look, and what I love best about this photo is how they have layered the flat screen in there too. I think it's hard to make a flatscreen look "good" or hide it so this one does a pretty good job of making it mesh in nicely and sorta disappear a bit. like!

I do it! It looks casual, and hanging stuff can be terrifying :)

Jennifer said...

YES!

I love that look! I also love the book shelves divided by single books slanted. Nice slant all that layering gives-

I was just noticing some good examples of layering artwork in the new Apartment Therapy book last night, I love the look -- and its a great use of space!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

I like.

When you only have so many places for frames it's a great way to use a bunch in one spot.

I am going in week after next to negotiate an offer from the BAC:) we'll see.

Love it! I'm a huge fan of layering. My entry table is acutally layered this very moment because I haven't decided where to hang a piece art. It's probably going to stay like that for a while because I like it so much.

Have a great weekend. I'm heading to West Palm this weekend. Can't wait to get some sun on my buns. :o) xo, Cristi

Full House said...

Erika @ BluLabel Bungalow said...

Laura Casey Interiors said...

Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. said...

What a great problem you have to have too much art and not enough wall space! I think that is my dream. Love the layered look...can't wait to see what you do!

Amy @ Varnish said...

I think every well designed space is layered.

Creategirl said...

Layering can be so beautiful when done correctly like the photo you posted above. I think the key is to just see enough of each picture to grab your interest! great post topic!

Tonia of Chic Modern Vintage said...
