I'm not a designer but I love great design, and the art I see around our offices -- on our walls - in our front gallery - our presentations and videos - on the scanner - coming off the printers - and being framed -- inspires me every day. It makes me think of all the rooms I want to create. Here's one I've done in my own home since I joined in May. I'm now the proud owner of two Judy Paul prints - Get Out I and Get Out II - which I had printed in custom sizes (1 horizontal and 1 vertical) to fit my space. Notice the great pairing with my new tangerine Jonathan Adler x-Benches and the 15-year old Jean-Michel Frank-inspired chocolate mohair couch. The vintage bird pillows from dwellstudio.com were not pricey and came with inserts. The room was dark and blah before - Tell me you love it now! And oh-by-the-way, Artemide's spectacular Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp is going on sale at dwr.com this week - that will brighten things up even more!!!  
Here’s Part 2 of our 3 part series. You can take a look back at how we at Gallery Direct make sure your photo uploads look great. But, as promised, we’re going to take a look at Vintage. Vintage has something for everyone. There are some very unique pieces ranging from French Posters and Asian Art all the way to Van Gogh’s Starry Night. We also have some great Americana art dating back through times in American History. One of my favorites is this French Liquor Poster. Vintage Artwork: Each Vintage Image you order has been retouched to look like new. Look at these Before & After examples...

Here at Gallery Direct we want to make sure that your image looks great. We offer a wide variety of imagery so that you can definitely find something that fits your taste. We have exclusive artists that share their wonderful artwork with us, just for you! In fact, I have many hanging in my own house. We also have Vintage prints that have grown to be very popular. And, you can even upload your own photo and create your very own piece of art. We’ll be doing a three part series on what we, at Gallery Direct, specifically offer. Our PrePress and Imaging department ensures that each image is looked at and retouched to perfection. You are getting the very best there is to offer with Gallery Direct. Gallery Direct offers: Exclusive Artwork: This is Judy Paul’s Lucky in Love – which has been perfected to look closely to the original, in color and in texture. One of my absolute favorites.         Vintage Artwork: Maybe you order a Vintage image. Each Vintage Image you order has been retouched to look like new. Just take a look at this example: Marines Recruiting Photo Uploads: Many customers upload their very own image and are able to create their own art or photograph. There are lots of wedding photos and family photos… photos from trips or even a birthday party. We see a lot back here in the PrePress and Imaging department. We’re going to jump right on into Photo Uploads first. It’s a popular choice. When you upload a photo onto Gallery Direct, you are able to pick the size you want. You are also able to pick a type. Do you want a Gallery Wrap? Or maybe have your image Framed? We also offer printing on Metal, Acrylic, Mirror and even Wood! There are lots of options. Once the image makes it to our PrePress Department is when the magic starts. Let’s look at the below example. The flash from their camera has caused the woman to have “Red eye” – our PrePress Department can take that out: Let’s say you want your photo to be turned into a B&W or Sepia tone: Maybe your photo has a certain Hue to it that doesn’t look neutralized. In this case, this photo is too blue. We can make sure your image turns out great: Join us next time to learn more about our Vintage Imagery. Cassie in our PrePress team works wonders! Go take some photos! Brittney
