Ties in Colour
If you -like many- are seeing a massive rise in vintage artwork styled in modern interiors but aren't sure how you should be styling them in your own home, look no further. These pieces are often larger hung on a wall or much smaller styled on a shelf or console table.
If you want to go big, these oversized framed artworks look incredible hung over a fireplace mantle or couch, or as an addition to a vintage/eclectic gallery wall over a couch or in a hallway. If you want to keep that modern look, opt for a thin black wood frame or a neutral wood for a minimalist interior.
If you're hesitant, start small with a framed print styled on a shelf. Add a pop of colour to an otherwise plain shelf to create an instant focal point. Try to style the shelf with objects to bring out the colours of the print such as plants, vases, books or candles.

When hanging framed art prints, you might wonder how high up you should be hanging them? Consider these two things before making any holes in your walls:
An easy guideline for hanging art is sticking to around eye level, or about 57-63 inches off the ground. This may vary if your furniture is much taller or shorter and the distance seems odd. If that's the case, hang the framed art print around 4-8 inches above it. One of the most common beginner interior design mistakes is hanging art too far up away from the furniture.
Think about the space in terms of usage. For example, in a living room, you will be sitting more than standing, which can change your eye line. It might be a good idea to hang a piece lower around some furniture so that you're not craning your neck to look at it. Hanging art lower can also provide interesting vignettes in a space.
