Group the Frames

Hi everyone, I hope that you had a fantastic weekend! We’ve been really lucky with the winter weather the last few days here in Auckland. It’s continuing, so I’m making the most of it and I’m writing to you from my garden while I soak up the sunshine!

Today I’m showing you an example of how to group a straight line of frames on the wall. You also get peak into our bedroom.

We’re renting our lovely house in Auckland, so there are always limitations as to what you can do when hanging frames. Normally I would have done some sort of collage, however there were already four hooks above where the bed is. The options were; four frames of the same size in a row, which I didn’t have or a mix of different sizes.

It was really about playing around with the different frames and canvases that I had in the house, and in the end I settled for four black frames, which brings some sort of balance to this particular set up.  It’s a bit hard to see from the photo but the two outer frames are quite ornate, which adds a bit of texture to the mix.

See you on Wednesday!

  • Does 5:30pm on a Friday qualify as the weekend? Love how the streets of Auckland are full of tree swings, a bit like Australia in the 80's. Happy weekend everyone! #freespirit
  • Exciting news! Cam and Gavin of @flotsam_and_jetsam_ponsonby are opening a warehouse today at 10am! This is a secondary store to be opened on Fridays and Saturdays and is dedicated to all of the larger items that they can't fit in their Ponsonby store. Last week I paid a visit and took a bunch of photos of the many gems in store. Pop over the blog www.styledcanvas.com for details and the warehouse tour. If you're in Auckland, make sure you pop in to have a look for yourself, so many cool things, if you're a lover of interesting vintage and bric-a-brac you won't be disappointed.
  • My friend Emma from @aquietstyle asked me if I could share #onefromthecuttingroomfloor today. Here's a magical moment coming home on the boat in Russell in the Bay of Islands. Seeing this photo makes me think I should do a blog post of my photos of this beautiful place. What about you @visualstrands and @igorjosif do you have a pic to share?
  • I've joined @jocelynhefner in her #innerinteriorchallenge to try pausing before we respond and see how we go. It's been interesting. I forgot to do it a lot in the beginning but as o continue I'm more aware. I was actually worried that I'd not get a chance to speak as others would but in when I paused but in fact people listen more. Thanks for the challenge Jocelyn. I'm still working on it #pause.
  • This photo of me back in the days when I smoked is one of my favourites. What is it? The rebellion? Memories of my time in France? Or is it the glamour it portrays? I've opened up a bit of a discussion on the media and their role in glamorising cigarettes again on the blog. This is not a rant about smokers at all, it doesn't bother me at all and I quite like the smell. It's more about how we were almost there but there's a resurgence which worries me more for new generation. More on the blog and I'd be interested in your thoughts. Is it being glamorised again?
  • Beautiful baskets from a visit to Matakana markets. Hope you're all having a great day everyone, it's freeeezing here, 3 degrees this morning ❄️😁
