Tired of bare walls? The right collection of art can transform an otherwise simple corner of your house into a focal point that shows off a little bit of your personality. So, how do you create the right arrangement?
Large pieces of art often function best alone. Single prints should be big enough to hold their own above the mantel or the sofa, without being overpowering.
Smaller pieces, on the other hand, tend to be make more of a statement when arranged in groups. Hang photographs, prints, and paintings framed and matted in complementary colors in tight clusters (no more than two inches apart).
Don’t fuss too much over placement—with a little foresight and creativity your gallery wall will become a piece of artwork in it’s own right.
