Black and white or Color in this space?  I  have my own opinion and my husband had a completely opposite perspective so I'd like to hear your thoughts. If you love to decorate...or even just appreciate someone elses love of really good design then feel free to weigh in.   First, A little back story on the creation of this image featuring my own family. The thing that is really cool at Studio B is that we're able to take a snapshot of your space (or in this case my own) and then do a virtual rendering of the portrait to the wall in the desired size.  This is so cool because we can really visualize the end results.  I did what I tell all of my clients to do --  I coordinated our outfits with a focus on pleasing colors, accents,  texture, and patterns for the ROOM I intended to display it in - in this case...our front room.  This is a place for us to socialize with friends and family...without a television.  When the room is finished, it will be slightly more dressy in design than our casual living room but there will still be a focus on comfort and relaxation.  If this sounds like a lot of thought for a family is and that's why you hire us at Studio B --  but this is a large heirloom piece  and investment that will be a focal point in your home...I expect for the children to fight over this some day way in the future!  (Oh and since everyone always wants to know...I shot this myself with a remote control, camera mounted from the street  :-) )
