Designing your portraits to enhance your home’s decor might seem like a challenging puzzle, but I know a few things that can help you figure it out. First, decide where your portraits are going to be displayed. Choose a location in your home that you spend a lot of time in, or one that gets a lot of traffic.
Next, use the colors that are in your home as a base for your wardrobe. I love how the Finch family used the cool blues in their great room as their wardrobe main color. The aqua is a perfect compliment to the oranges and reds that were prime in our fall mountain location.
Finally, try making a visual triangle in the room with multiple displays. A’Lisha has a display in her entry, next to her couch, and facing the great room. The bright orange in the photographs serves as a beautiful visual decor element anywhere you stand in her home. Using complimentary colors like this makes a bold but balanced display.
The cool tones in homes that are popular right now are perfect for fall portraits, and it’s not too late to schedule a bold fall session. Comment below if you like the complimentary color scheme, or if you are more of a “everything matches”, or monochrome kind of decorator. I’m curious what you think.
