Name: Katie's Walls of Fame
Location: Montclair, NJ
Place: Fifth Overall
Jill - The cumulative effect of the 32 items on the wall is great, but I was not as moved by the individual pieces.
Alec - More than any other entry, I found myself wanting to go back to her art, and each time, I found something new. There is an art to arranging that many images, and Katie does it really well. Also, The 5 small portraits of Katie and her boyfriend are right up my alley. Love the stark white mini canvases against the old brick. I Love "love" above a bed- it just seems right.
SKGR - This was too much for me and felt cluttered, but I do appreciate her enthusiasm for all the pieces AND her boyfriend. Her excitement for her apartment was great.
Maxwell - Katie is exuberant and I loved her the most at first. But after looking at all the entries this changed. The artwork and the super bright colors would be too much for me to live with and there is a roughness in the approach. That said, since Katie is just getting started and this is her first room, she obviously is going to go far in the future.
