After repainting the walls in the lower level, guest bedroom, and the upstairs hallway, the next step was to get new art. Just like the main level redesign, I wanted to use a combination of existing and new pieces, and a combination of framed art and sculpture. I also wanted to eliminate some of the stock art I had before; the lower level was especially filled with a lot of generic alcohol-related pieces that were much cooler when I was 22 than they are now. Below is a partial selection of art that I’ve ordered so far:
One of the first pieces to arrive so far was the four panel map of London, which looks incredible in the base of the stairs to the lower level.
It also pairs well with some of the vintage maps I have hanging on the walls of the stairway, including a smaller map of London from 1836. As the rest of the art arrives, I’ll post more photos. I’m looking forward to everything coming together!
