Artwork in the Living Room

Artwork in the Living Room

Having just moved into a new smaller space, I'm re-evaluating what I want to have on the walls in the living room. So many questions: go big? Minimal? Salon Style? Grid? And, of course, hanging artwork is notoriously difficult for me, so looking back through the archives I've brainstormed some great ways to consider hanging artwork in the living room.

Top Row:

: For those that want to be able to switch things out early and often, a shallow shelf lets you casually lean artwork and change it out as often as you'd like.

Second Row:

: in a small space you can go spare or you can go maximize and do a salon style hanging of mismatched frames in different sizes and textures of all of your favorite images.

Third Row:

: blow up a family photo to be the backdrop for gatherings.

Last Row:

: Max and Gen bought this piece off of a friend of theirs in the LA art scene. It's perfect above their sofa and is an interesting piece--any guesses as to what it is ;)
