Vern Yip at the Gibbes

Art + Design @ The Gibbes! The Art of Design Luncheon Presented by the Women's Council featured speaker Vern Yip. Known for his TLC's Trading Spaces, NBC's Home Intervention and HGTV's most recognizable designer, Vern shared his background, travel experiences and personal style. My personal favorite tidbit were the measurements that translate to ease of living. His linens and patterns graced the tables of the luncheon.

Wall art options can be a hill to climb without the right information. Equally overwhelming is the abundance of choices in sizes and design layout. If you have huge walls you might want something that really takes up space with thick mats and large frames. If your space is more compact, you might want something smaller, with or without a frame. Some of our clients need horizontals or landscapes while others choose squares. If you have a goal before the photography sessions, please let us know. We will do our best to make it happen. Otherwise, we can see what art grabs you close and help guide on how you would like it displayed.

For reference, the space in this image was designed using an 8ft wide wall with couch height of 34in and width of 7ft and the canvases 3 in apart.

Our images start in what we call full frame. It is a 2x3 ratio (4x6, 8x12, 12x18, 16x24). From there we can crop and size to fit your space and preferences;

  • squares, verticals and horizontals
  • singles or a series
  • canvas or under glass print
  • matt or no matt
  • frames

So let your hair down. Relax. We got this. Let’s display some family art.
