What do you see in the image above?
Let’s start with style:
we are looking at an urban apartment with an industrialized style – very common where industrial parks have been converted into apartment. It appears that this apartment is fairly new or recently renovated. The occupant decided to give an urban, industrial look.
- First, they wallpapered or muraled the main wall with brick to give the feeling of a converted brick wall. Second, they painted the ceiling in the concrete style. The ceiling and brick combo gives the perfect industrial look that the occupant is trying to achieve:

And now for the decor on the wall:
you will note six portrait floating frames and three wall decor items that form a separation. Of the six portrait frames, you have an extra large, large and medium size frame on one side; three small portrait sizes on the other. Note how these portrait frames are positioned – each one at varying heights and levels.
- The three wall decor items down the middle are all of the same size. They have been positioned to separate the portrait hangings with the two bottom pieces in line with each other; the top off-centered to the left.

Make the portraits interesting:
the portrait hangings are very unique – photos of interesting children and groups that tell a story. This is most likely by the photographer who is displaying his own work.
- To replicate the same decor setup, use portraits of your own taking. Portraits that draws out curiosity from friends visiting your home. You want these wall pieces to tell a story or invoke a memory each time to gaze upon the wall. Consider taking your own portrait photos for display.
