Help! Oh wise ones...

I have spent much time today arranging and rearranging pictures on my rug. I went to a home show and saw this:
I'm referring to the picture arrangement, not the people. I thought it looked cool so maybe I'd try it in my own home someday.
Well, that day has arrived. But now I want your professional opinions. I can not be trusted. I have spent way way too much time over analyzing this. So here are the arrangements I came up with.
1.
2.
3.
Er...I am aware now that looking at these on the computer they all look the same. BUT THEY'RE NOT. I swear. Um, I also realize that the rug is a very busy background. It couldn't be helped. I measured my wall and was fitting the pictures into a very specific part of the rug. So. Yeah. What I would like is for you to get out your magnifying glasses, abandon your children and stare at these picture for great amounts of time until you have an epiphany about what I should put on my wall. Because that's what I did. All except for the epiphany part. Or, you can write in and tell me I'm crazy and to just put the stupid pictures up all ready.

In my professional decorating opinion....#2.

Dannelle said...

I am voting for #2. Looks like it flows better.

Wendy said...

I agree with the above, #2 is the winner.

Valerie said...

#2 for me as well!

Melanie said...

Um....I'm just going to jump on the bandwagon and vote #2. I'm not really a decorator but....looks good to me.

I just have to be different and I'll tell you why. I prefer #1. The other two have the picture of the temple in it and although I love the temple, it just kind of pops out a little to much for my taste. I realize that on your homeshow sample there is a big picture, but they seem to be having a color scheme going on there and so it sort of blends in. The temple doesn't as much.

In looking at them up close, maybe #2 is not so bad, the popping thing doesn't seem so noticable, and you could use that one. But, to me, in the far away pictures, the temple picture seems to dominate to much.

I'm going to do this on the anonymous because I don't agree with everyone else. I know, you think you'll be able to tell who I am because I'll be the only one without a post. But maybe I'll post as a voter for #2 and use my name. I can be so devious ;0)

Sheena, I stared at the pictures, and the only thought I had was---I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. The thought of measuring and spacing that many pictures evenly has given me a headache. If you only knew how long I agonize over ONE picture. YOU DO NOT WANT MY OPINION!!! That said, whatever you do will look spectacular. Let's just face it, as long as the other options are not side by side, no one will ever know there was a better option than the one you chose.
