What type of art should I hang?

Art should be something personal to you! I see many people who try to match fabrics or colors in their room to the art that they are purchasing, of course there is nothing wrong with this. However, art can be something personal or quirky, something that may only make sense to nobody but you, and you know what? That is okay! I am all for making the art cohesive in your space, but I also enjoy seeing something that is so "OFF" in a space that it's perfect! I hope you enjoy the following examples and get some great ideas for art in your space. . .

How to hang art?

I get asked these questions all of the time, "How high do I hang it?" "How many should I hang?" "Can I hang more than one piece in the same room?" I have found some great pics that will hopefully give you some great ideas and help you feel more confident about displaying your art!

Although this is a VERY modern and contemporary room, in the following pics are good examples of how to mix the new AND the old styles!
