This Bethesda, MD Restaurant Opens With All New Artwork On Its Walls (And These Looks Are Perfect for Your Home Too!)

Earlier this year, I was asked to select artwork for the newest location of Gregorio’s Trattoria. The delicious Italian food from this locally owned Bethesda, MD restaurant was already a favorite in our household, so I was thrilled to take on this project.

Subscribers to my newsletter got a first look at the big reveal. Now, I am so excited to finally share it right here on my site! The best part? The artworks used in this project are all limited edition fine art prints and can be shopped on-line. These are high quality reproductions of original artworks that are available in a variety of sizes and at affordable price points!

A Welcoming Main Entrance

Whether in a personal residence or a commercial space, the front entry is so important for setting the tone of an interior. I selected this stunning coastal landscape photograph for just inside the front door at Gregorio’s Trattoria. We had this piece printed on paper and framed in a gorgeous reclaimed barn wood frame.

When printed in a large size, as we did for the restaurant, this piece feels like a window to the sea.

The Main Dining Room Wall

The main dining area includes a feature wall that runs the entire length of the restaurant. The accent lighting was designed to spotlight 5 architectural bump-outs, creating ideal places to showcase a series of work. But I am going to let you in on a little secret… these 5 pieces are from 2 separate series by the same artist! Their coordinating palettes and abstract compositions made them the perfect choice to display together.

Looking Towards the Kitchen

This landscape photograph hangs in the main dining area on the far wall as you walk in the front door. I love the perspective and how it draws your eye in, even from across the room. The brilliant pink sky is reminiscent of those fleeting moments at dusk, when the sky is ablaze in color, just before the sun dips below the horizon.

Hang this piece anywhere you want to create the illusion of more space. The vastness of the sky, coupled with the mountains in the distance, will make any room feel more expansive.

Looking Towards the Front Door

This dreamy landscape hangs in the main dining area at the opposite end from the kitchen. The composition and the palette gives it a wonderful warm glow. You can almost feel the late afternoon sunshine on a hot summer day in the European countryside.

A gorgeous landscape in warm Earthy tones. I’m dreaming about this piece in a kitchen’s breakfast nook area.

Also in the Main Dining Area

This eye-catching diptych hangs in the main dining area by the entrance to the kitchen. The coral hues pop against a neutral wall color.

In the Alcove

This abstract waterscape hangs in the alcove leading to the restrooms. It’s visually framed by stunning built-ins that act as wine storage.

Collide I by Kelly Johnston

Dramatic and moody, this piece would be perfect in a home office or study, especially displayed between built-in bookshelves.

The Bar Area

This triptych is the perfect piece for the long back wall in the bar area.

Where wouldn’t this gorgeous triptych work? In a hallway? Perfection. Above a sofa? Absolutely. Over a bed? Love it.
