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?

One of our favorite living room wall décor ideas is the gallery wall, which is a fun way to fill space while showing off an entire collection of your favorite things. To make a successful gallery wall, it is important to consider how the different elements will play off one another. There are two ways to approach gallery walls. The first is to gather everything you want to hang and then create a map or plan for how you will arrange them before they go on the wall.
Display a collection of art, photographs, or add wall hangings and other ephemera. Opt for simple, cohesive frames or bring in an array of ornate variations to mix things up. A tapestry or wall hanging can add color and pattern, as well as a sense of softness to a space. Consider framing vintage scarves or other pretty textiles. It is a lot easier to move than framed paintings when it comes time to head to your next home.
