to add some character to your wall than with some Extremely Beautiful Pastel Watercolor Paintings. Take a look and find out for yourself!
Nothing can finish a room's interior design as effective use of wall art. But people are often surprised at what to put where. Some of the most common mistakes I see are: The art hung too high, the size of art in proportion to the size of the wall and the art connected from the furniture, benefit from it.
Here are some tips to help ensure your wall art enhancements, rather than detracting from the overall look of your room.
1. Right height
Most people mistakenly believe that images should be hung at eye level. But who's eye? And 6 & # 39; 2 "man or a 5" 4 "woman? A better way to measure the right height is by looking at how the picture relates to the furniture beneath it. A good rule of thumb is to hang a picture so that the bottom is 6-8 inches above one sofa back or 8-10 inches over other furniture, higher than that, and detached from the furniture and makes the room look out of balance.
2. The right balance
Another mistake that people usually make is a small picture behind a large sofa. An image should be half to two-thirds of the width of the furniture below it. If an image is too narrow for the site, you can flank it with two smaller pictures to fill the space.
3. Think of groupings like one picture
If you do not have enough art to fill a large space, you can use groupings of smaller pieces. The individual images must be framed in similar materials (metal, wood, etc.). They do not have to be identical, but they should not "fight" with each other.
Before hanging your group, practice a nice arrangement on the floor. You can also cut out paper in the same shapes as your pictures and tap them on the wall with the painter's tape until you are satisfied with the arrangement. For a coherent appearance, the frames should be no more than about 3-4 inches apart.
4. The mirrors triple
Mirrors not only have functional and decorative use, but they can also become an architectural element. Placed where it will reflect a window and its view, a mirror can work almost like an extra window, increasing the amount of light in a room and making a room quieter.
Mirroring should follow the same rule of thumb as art, but make sure that a mirror is high enough for people to see their reflections without having their heads cut off.
And don't lean a mirror on the mantle, as it will only reflect the ceiling.
If you follow these guidelines when hanging your art, you will see how much more coherent and balanced your room will look.
