Art is beautiful to the individual person no matter how you hang it but how about letting the ‘art of hanging’ be the art in itself? Especially in many of the new homes that are open concept, there isn’t a lot of wall space to hang anything so you have to get creative.
Don’t limit yourself to the walls or propping it on your buffet – how about hanging it on the front of a bookshelf or window? Lean a grouping on the floor? Creating a room divider with a large canvas? On each door?
I once hung an oil painting in front of a floor to ceiling mirror with a buffet and lamp below to ground it. Besides keeping people from walking into the mirror, it created a wonderful vignette in the dining room.
