Get the picture, then visualize
How can you know if the style of a photo or a piece of art will fit on the wall in one of your room? When you think of it, most of the time we just try to imagine how art will look in our decor. This guess work is based on various aspects like the style, the size, the colors of the artwork and the colors of the wall, the furniture, the light. Sometimes we just don't have a clue.
I read something recently about this and I started to think about it more seriously. How can my clients know how the photos they buy from me will look in their environment? If I don't have a clue myself, how can they know. We both know our part of the puzzle: they know their rooms, I know my photos. Wouldn't it be interesting if we could bring all of this together and make the best choice before moving on with a print selection?
Maybe it would help if they had some sample setups including photos to visualize how it will look overall. Even if it's not their room or furniture, just to see a room with their choice of photos is a big plus in taking the right decision.
If I am asked, I can visit the client and shoot the room in which he or she plans to hang the photo. That's a case by case kind of arrangement. In the meantime, here's a series of setups I prepared, just to give you an idea of what can be done. I seriously think it's very helpful, a great idea and a big plus in the process of picking up the right photo for a specific room.
Let me know what you think!
