Neighborhood Spotlight: Abundantly Clear Design

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 Leave a Comment

When we went art hunting in New Mexico for Spring Break, we bought some art we loved, but knew we wouldn't receive it until after the artist had a show at the gallery in July. Last week, we finally received our art, but realized we were in over our heads in terms of actually hanging it. One painting was huge (48"x48"), and the other was a diptych of two individual 24"x24" paintings that needed to be hung together.

We asked around, and several people recommended Holly Lange at Abundantly Clear Design. Holly is a Stapleton resident who started her business in 2005 and is an absolute pro! Our art came with no hardware, so she attached D-rings, a wire, and padded feet to keep it in place and protect our walls. She was in and out in an hour, and we couldn't be more delighted with the results. She was so precise in hanging the diptych, we discovered that the two paintings aren't actually identically sized - one is 1/8" bigger... Who knew?

She does much more than hang art - she also offers:
  • Paint color consultations using Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams color kits
  • Vacant home staging (with rental items)
  • Occupied Home staging and consultations (using existing items)
  • Space planning with an organizing emphasis/efficient use of space
  • Decorating and redesign services - including buying new items, rearranging, and picture hanging
In the last dozen years, she has staged or decorated more than 3,000 homes. She was telling us about her latest client, an older, single gentleman who wanted help furnishing and decorating his home. They formed a plan together, she handled all the shopping, and he has a tastefully decorated new home (pictured)!

Holly says, "I love to introduce new colors into a neutral room with art and accessories, and decorating bookshelves by combining sentimental treasures with books and small pieces of art in a layered look."

I highly recommend Holly to anyone in need of help hanging art, staging a home, or redesigning/refreshing the look of a home - she's friendly, prompt, reliable, and has a fantastic eye. Thanks for helping us out, Holly!
