“A certain blue enters your soul” -Henri Matisse
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.
Autumn is all about warm colours. Switching your art seasonally is a great way to decorate if you're not someone that wants fall decorations everywhere. Here are a few great art options for the season:
You don't have to just use a bright orange abstract for fall. Look at some of the warm brows, beiges and rust coloured abstracts. Style these framed artworks on a console table or hang as a set in a hallway.
Autumn toned landscapes are a great way to bring some warmth into a space. Go larger on these prints and hang oversized above a bed or couch for a cozy fall look. Match the frame colour to the bed frame for a designer style.
Switch your bright summer florals and abstracts with a darker more muted print. These pieces look amazing styled on a shelf or added to a framed gallery wall. Frame with a black frame to make the colours pop.
