Southern Accents online has some wonderful articles on the art of hanging art, including an article by Josie McCarthy on her tips for grouping and arranging art. There is also an article on the importance of framing (VERY important, trust me). Famed designer Barry Dixon weighs in by recommending a grouping of nine works; nine is a magical number to him, because it provides many options for arrangement. These experts all recommend to fully plan your arrangement on the floor and even better on the wall (by using cut-out paper in the size and shape of the frame) before attempting to hang the art.
A picture from an Atlanta real estate listing. Suzanne Kasler was the interior designer, and the artwork on the stairs is arranged just so. I love the stair runner and rails too!
Domino content: Victoria from San Francisco... this is sfgirlbybay blogger! This is my favorite art arrangement on theDomino site.
Original art is very desirable, and there are so many wonderful sources for art these days: etsy, ebay, flea markets, children's sketches. However, wonderful and affordable arrangements can also be made from antique prints.
