HOW TO: HANG A SALON-STYLE WALL AT HOME | Episode |

December 8, 2011



Sally talks to art consultant Cris McCall about how to create a salon-style wall at home.

Everything old is new again, and the salon-style wall is no exception. The origin of this trend - as with many - is Paris. There is an excellent, very researched acount here, but here's the quick and dirty from Wikipedia:

Salon (Paris)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Salon (French: Salon), or rarely Paris Salon (French: Salon de Paris), beginning in 1725 was the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France. Between 1748–1890 it was the greatest annual or biannual art event in the Western world. From 1881 onward, it has been organized by the Société des Artistes Français....The Salon exhibited paintings floor-to-ceiling and on every available inch of space.

...so, there ya have it.

If you hadn't seen all the press that Cris and I were speaking of, or you need more convincing of the "magic of the mish-mash," as I call it, here are a few more examples:

I love the use of negative and positive space in the colored mounting in this one:

This one really takes advantage of every inch of space, from floor to ceiling:

And this one illustrates perfectly how a thematic through-line can look fantastic:

 

So GO FOR IT, folks! And puh-leez post your results at VGL2U for all to see. Because that will be very good-looking!
