Using Large-Scale Artwork to Anchor a Room

Small groups of clustered artwork have been the big trend for a while now, but nothing anchors a room like a huge painting or photograph. Behind a sofa, above a credenza, and even in a small space, large-scale art has a large-scale impact. If you're worried about affordability, there are ways to make your own art. When Arthur (photo #2) needed an oversized piece for his dining room, he splatter painted a canvas himself.
