HANGING TIPS: Personalize with Art and Accessories

  • Repeat a color at least three times in a room.
  • Relate your art to its surroundings.  Art placed six to nine inches above a sofa will create a unified look.
  • Cover two-thirds of the space above a piece of furniture with one or more pieces of art to achieve pleasing proportions.
  • Position the artwork at “eye level”.
  • Vary the height of tabletop accessories for balance and interest.
  • Create a formal look with symmetrical groups of art.  Create an informal look with asymmetrical groupings.
  • Place mirrors so they reflect something beautiful.  Use them to add dimension, expand space or reflect light in a room.
  • Display art on easels to create interest in corners, bookcases, or on tabletops.
