How to Hang & Display Artwork

In this video, Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs, a high-end residential remodeling and interior design firm in Chicago, covers how to hang and display an artwork.

When deciding where to hang an artwork, you want to center it both vertically and horizontally in the space. For light artwork, you can hang it on the wall by a nail mounted on the wall. Use carpenter’s level on the top edge to make sure it’s perfect in the space. Then, adjust the piece until you find the perfect level.

You know you frame up the artwork well on the space when the spaces on top and bottom, and both sides are equal. Another simple way to hang your artwork is by using saw-toothed hangers. Just tap them with the hanger onto the back of the painting or the frame.

And last is with the use of c-rings. Mount two of them on your ceiling and two at the back of an artwork. Then, use rope or twine to suspend the piece. For industrial loft-type spaces, use thin wire.

How Do I Choose an Accent Wall Color for Interior Painting?

In this video, Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs–a high-end residential remodeling and interior design firm in Chicago–covers some tips on how you can pick a color for your accent wall.

Before anything else, the first thing to evaluate is the size of your room. Erica said that if your space is small you may not want to choose an accent wall. In this case, an accent wall will break the flow of your limited space and can make the whole room feel smaller.

Likewise, if your space is large enough, look at the main color of your walls. The undertones will guide you through selecting the perfect accent color. For instance, if the walls have grey undertones, look at your color deck and choose colors with the same undertones. And if your wall colors have a more brown undertone, then go to warmer colors.

Erica advises: “the trick is to not have too crazy or wild of a color.” You want to choose a color that can work with the main wall color of your space.

Trim Color for Vintage Gray Walls

In this video, Erica Lugbill interior designer and owner of Lugbill Designs, a  Chicago-based home remodeling firm, covers tips that will help you choose the right trim color that goes perfectly well with vintage gray walls.

When choosing a trim color, avoid matching wood stain trim with gray walls. Erica said that the combination of gray and wood looks outdated and dingy. On the contrary, a great option is to paint your trim a fresh, bright, crisp white. This is a classic combination you can’t go wrong with. The contrast it creates perfectly pops the gray tones on the wall.

Another great trim color is a deep charcoal paint. Paired with gray walls, it creates a rich monochromatic look that’s elegant overall. The combination warms up the space and effectively creates drama. To finish up, you can also consider painting your doors deep charcoal.
