Wall Decor / September 3, 2018 / Pearl Schofield.
Do not get hung up on hanging, either. To inject a more casual and calm atmosphere into the room, consider leaning your wall art like our wooden wall art on a shelf or up against a wall, if it is a particularly large or tall canvas. So hopefully with our tips today, your chosen wall art can now be displayed confidently and with pride.
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.
The other way is to start with a central, dominant piece, hang it in the middle, and then add things around it organically and over time. Whichever method you choose, avoid a boring grid like pattern by mixing in items of various shapes and textures. An oval mirror, a textile, a clock, historic artifacts, musical instruments all are great for breaking up the straight lines of square and rectangular framed photos and art.
Are you having trouble deciding what size or type of wall decor to choose or how to hang pictures? A good rule of thumb is to choose wall art that takes up the width of the wall, minus 6-12 inches on each side, so it looks like it is centered, like the image above. For example, you have a 36 inch wall. Leave about 6 inches on each side of the piece of art, which means you should choose something around 24 inches wide.
