Gallery owners and museum curators, however, swear by the 60 inches on center rule. This means that you measure up 60 inches from the ground to find the spot where the center of a piece of art should be on the wall. It works well in many situations, but there are some cases when you may want to alter the height, if you are shorter than the average person, try 57 inches on center, if the art work is an unusual size or shape that looks unnatural at that height.
Salvage pieces that have meaning to you and your family. This old storefront sign is ultra charming but also tells a story of days gone by. Unleash your inner artist by transforming everyday objects, like paint chips, books or discarded branches, into pieces of art. Or, try your hand at one of our fun and easy DIY painting ideas.
Our series of embellished fabric canvases create a wonderfully calm collection with just enough sparkle to create an impactful display. For asymmetrical galleries, be sure to include 1 to 2 larger scale pieces, hanging these first and then group your smaller pieces around them. The easiest way to create an effective gallery wall is to first trace around each piece onto newspaper or kraft paper, cut out the resulting shapes and using bluetack, hang the templates on the wall, moving them around until you find the best combination for your wall art display.
The things you hang on your walls tell the story of who you are. Leave your walls blank and you will feel like you are living in a hotel. Bring in the right art, photos and wall décor and you will have a home with a wonderful sense of culture and personality. For whatever reason, many people make the mistake of hanging art and décor too high.
