Interesting wall groupings

Interesting wall groupings bring drama and color to any home. Use these tips to help guide you in creating your personal groupings.

  1. When creating a wall composition make sure the framing, color scheme and size make perfect sense to your decor.
  2. Keep the weight evenly distributed in the composition.
  3. Make sure that the grouping fits the space. Groupings should be at least twelve inches from the ceiling and occupy 2/3 of the furniture it hangs above.
  4. Pictures should be hung at eye level sixty to sixty-five inches from the floor to the center of the artwork.
  5. When hanging pictures on wallpaper make sure that the picture frame and mat is wide enough so that it does not compete with the pattern of the wallpaper.
  6. Spacing between pictures should be 3″ to 4″ apart.
  7. Artwork over the sofa should be no longer than the sofa and should be half the sofa’s length.
  8. Artwork over the sofa should hand 8 to 10 inches over the sofa.
  9. Keep to one theme in the room. Don’t mix still lifes, landscapes, portraits, abstracts or impressionism with realism and cubism.
