We wrote about using large pieces of art to fill out a blank wall, but another way to go is grouping smaller pieces together. This can be more of a challenge but have a beautiful payoff. Here are five different strategies - which one do you like?1 A Modern Family-Friendly New York Apartment: similar artwork, all of the same size, can be stunning

2 Flickr Find: Photo Wall: hanging frames without negative space between them in essence creates one larger piece

3 Julianna's Rainbow Room: the common colors of these pieces ties the look together

4 The Best Way to Hang Artwork the Wrong Way: put the level away for an intentional off-kilter look

5 Passe-Partout Photo Frame Clock: make it functional with a simple clock kit

Finally, we found this Apartment Therapy post, How To: Arrange and Hang Picture Frames Using Butcher Paper very helpful.
