Before & After: From Bland to Big & Beautiful

Kelly Conner, a resident of Kansas City, has been fighting with a wall since moving into her new loft. The space has always been awkward space and she never quite found an approach that felt "right" — until recently. Check out just how great large artwork can be, after the jump!

Kelly is originally from a small town and stopped to snap this photograph awhile back. For those who haven't had the privilege to live in such a place, time seems to stand still and you can stand and stare at old building for hours. Their character seems insurmountable, but hanging here in her living room, it's just the right amount of home town feel in a more modern space.

It's always great to see a space take shape and the right artwork makes more difference than you'll ever know until you find exactly what you're looking for! Breaking the piece into multiple strips plays well with the lighting and truly makes that wall the focus of the room. You can check out more of the story behind this photograph along with a few more photos of the space over at Kelly Is Loud And Tall.
