No matter your style, there are tricks that can amp up your walls and bring out your personality and taste. Whether you are an art collector, a nature enthusiast, or a book lover, your walls can be customized so that you can be surrounded by the things you adore. In addition to adding to the walls, think about decorating the walls themselves.
Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this, maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there is a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.
Styled ledges are having a moment. This is the perfect option if you are a person who likes to switch things up frequently. Do you like the idea of a tapestry but want something more glam? Go for a beaded wall hanging. Here, the beaded wall piece beautifully accentuates the teal upholstered chair. Blow up your own black and white photo, and hang it on a prominent wall to create a meaningful art piece on the cheap.
That means the center of your wall art area is about 60 inches from the ground. What if you are hanging living room wall art over furniture like a sofa or sofa table? Hang the artwork so the bottom edge is 6 to 8 inches from where the table or sofa back ends. Once you have an idea of a general spot, frame out the area with painters tape to visualize the spot.
