How to make the art fit the room

Share |
A mistake I made early on with decorating with art was hanging the art to fit the center of the wall space, rather than the furniture or other items close to wall. For example:

  • Art should hang at eye level! Don't place it above a bookcase just because you have the blank wall space.
  • Hang it in relation to what's close to it. Place a large painting within a couple of inches of the sofa, not centered between the top of the sofa and the ceiling.
  • White space can be a good thing. Every available open space doesn't have to have something on it.
