Wall Decor / September 2, 2018 / Bianca Marlow.
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.
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?
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.
If you are trying to decorate a small home, it can sometimes feel like your options are limited. And while there is not much you can do to add square footage, there are plenty of ways to make your tiny apartment feel perfectly put together. The key is taking advantage of the largest open spaces you have, your walls. Those empty walls are filled with possibilities and a few additions can make a small apartment feel cozy and stylish, instead of stark and cramped.
