(Welcome again to Sally, one of the finalists in our SF Blogger Search.
Comment away!)

I'm a San Francisco native who has spent most of my life living in Victorians. I've always loved the Edwardian details of my apartment, but can't deny that the wall moldings have proved to be a challenge when it comes to hanging art.

The two photos I've included are snapped from the same apartment, a work-from-home interior designer (who's living in under 350 square feet!). Both are great solutions, and it's refreshing that they're drastically different! The first one (above) is a great example of throwing in your practicality hat and completely ignoring the square-esque shape of the molding and going wild with layering found objects and everyday inspiration. The result is a fantastic composition that constantly inspires this home office.

This art fits perfectly into this space, because in a way I think it needs to feel framed. This solution creates more of a focal point.

What do you think? Comment away about your experiences with decorating your home around tricky wall moldings.
