Wall Decor / June 13, 2018 / Sadie Brumfield.
Instead, choose smaller pieces that can be laid like a collage or gallery wall like the contemporary living room above. Hang wall art in a diptych or triptych pattern, which is basically two, three or more panels of art that flow. Be sure to leave at least 2 inches between the pieces. You can do bigger spacing if you have a huge wall, just keep it consistent.
We have all been there. Blank walls can be a total headache when you do not have time, funds or ideas, but they certainly do not have to be. I have rounded up some wall decor ideas for every type of person, the DIY decorator, total trendsetter, penny pincher, plant person, vintage visionary, focused functionalist and salvaging soul.
There is no better way to express your personality than by choosing artwork that will adorn your walls, and creating a personal collection is a wonderful opportunity to highlight your unique style. The first step, of course, is to choose the pieces that speak to you and draw you in. But once you have identified the wall art you love, how do you go about displaying them to the best of their advantage?
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.
