10 ways to hang the PERFECT PIECE (OR PIECES) of art in your home
“People always tell me my home is a happy place and I believe your art plays a big role in that. It brings joy to me and my entire family.” Betsy Jones, Kristi Kohut Collector
This testimonial from a much loved collector fills me with joy! THIS is how art should make you and your family feel. When choosing art for your family room, the room you spend a large amount of time, choose with your heart. There are few different ways to incorporate art into your living room. Here are some ideas for each:
TWO VERTICAL PIECES OVER A SOFA OR BENCH
This is one of my favorite ways to incorporate art into your home. The best place to start is to find a piece that really speaks to you. Then look for a piece that compliments it as a pairing. Need a hand with this? No problem…happy to help! Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can recommend some pairings for you!
Size wise, I really like two 33x45 size prints framed. Two 33x33 size prints also work well too! This is the most popular size for this placement and really handles the weight of large sofas and walls, to give you big impact.
2. STATEMENT PIECE OVER A CABINET OR CHEST
Hang a medium or large piece of art over a cabinet or chest to liven up an entryway, or a wall in your living room or bedroom. The chest will anchor the weight of the art and can really be the finishing touch your room needs! Size-wise, the art should be about 3/4 of the width of the furniture (give or take a few inches). Consider rotating a larger piece over a taller chest. High ceilings, go big and really energize your home!
