Start With Art
Hanging TipsMood LightingAccessorizeTexture
Beautiful artwork can really tie a space together, especially if you take your color cues for the rest of your room from it. So to make sure everyone can enjoy your art equally, center your pieces at eye level for an average person, which is about 5'6". This height will typically place your display in the middle third of your wall, which makes it perfect for hanging above your furniture. Also, if you ever stop and wonder if a piece is too small for your wall, it probably is!
Remember, you chose your art to make an impact, so don't let the big, bad wall swallow it up! Instead, hang several pieces together gallery style-it'll be more attention grabbing, and guests will be inspired to take a closer look at each piece.
