In the Entry: Start Above the Console
Since your entryway is responsible for first impressions, hang the artwork you love in a can’t-miss location. To start, use your console table as a guide and centre a mirror above to brighten the space. Then, build up and around the mirror with favourite pieces, keeping a few inches between each one. If you're deciding what to hang, welcoming phrases and inspiring words can make this room extra inviting.
In the Stairwell: Follow the Incline
When decorating a staircase wall, your art should hang at eye-level and rise in relation to the incline of the stairs. First, centre and hang one piece of art along the stairs. Then, measure up from the step to the bottom of the artwork. For even hanging, make sure all frames have the same distance between the stairs below. Medium-sized pieces that can be seen both close-up and from a distance work well here, and hanging a print set is a quick way to get a cohesive look.
In the Living Room: Use Your TV as a Focal Point
If your television feels like an eyesore or it sits alone on a large empty wall, fill the space with art and fold it into a larger display. Hang pieces of different sizes up to and around the TV, keeping a few inches between each one. Larger canvases that don't require frames add texture and are easy to hang, and unexpected elements, like floating shelves and small mirrors, bring in variety.
In the Hallway: Begin in the Middle
When faced with a daunting blank wall, it’s good to remember that you don’t have to fill the entire thing (at least not all at once). Start in the middle of the wall and hang a few larger frames at eye-level, keeping an equal distance in between. Next, build up and out, adding to your collection over time. If you're looking to make a statement, choose 2- or 3-piece print sets to start your display.
