I have been a long-time fan of Randa Salloum’s chic line of hand-made prints, I See Noise, since I first discovered them through reading her fashion blog The Unprecedented. I fell in love with her use of gold and silver foil, and how she mixed the elegant with the edgy; images of perfume bottles and lipstick go side-by-side with skulls and stag heads. Ask anyone who knows my home decorating style, and you’ll find out how much I love anything metallic with anything animal…antler horns, faux fur throws, give it to me! When my office area needed a bit of sprucing up, I just had to collaborate with Randa, and use the I See Noise Prints I was coveting. She recently came over to my home and helped me frame and style my prints, which turned into an amazingly fun day that was all captured by talented Vancouver photographer Ainsley Rose. Many know Ainsley from her elegant wedding photography, but she’s also worked with some familiar Vancouver faces through her lifestyle photo-shoots. Ainsley made us feel completely comfortable and captured some wonderfully candid moments during our office styling session.
Here’s a look at the gorgeous photos, starting from the beginning of our styling session to the end result, followed by some of my tips for styling your prints in your home:

Mana’s Print Styling Tips:
- Use unconventional frames for the prints. If the print is black and white, use a gold or silver or even a bright coloured frame to make it pop. No need to always match the frame to what’s inside of it.
- When styling your prints, use different levels for layering. Play with height and even depth for the objects you place behind or in front of the print.
- Placing frames on the ground, leaning up to walls is a great way to add character to a space without ruining walls. Great tip if you’re a renter!
