How to Make Art POP in a Room!

Make your art POP in whatever room you put it in. Whether it is your living room, dining room, bedroom, or child’s room. There are just a few rules that decorators use and I’ll give you that list as well.

I’ll be adding some diagrams and some photos to show you a few ideas on how to hang the painting or art you just purchased, and how to arrange other elements around your art. This is one way that will make your art pop!

Since my husband insisted on keeping that old mirror, I decided to spice it up with 2 of my 10X 20 art pieces.

The above link is from Country Living showing several ideas on how to display art in a room.

The Right Height

  1. Hang at the Right Height. Prints or portraits should be hung at approximately the eye level of a person standing between 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. …
  2. Create a Grouping. …
  3. Build a Gallery Over Time. …
  4. The Power of Small. …
  5. Going for the Grid. …
  6. Add a Mat. …
  7. High-Ceiling Solutions

You don’t want your visitors that come to your home to have to look up at the ceiling to see what you’re displaying. (My Grandma hung her pictures up at the ceiling) So make sure you hang your art at head height.

Choose What Would Look Good To Display With Your Art

I’m using the same picture as before to prove a point. The mirror is hung at just the right height. But as you can see, I hung the 2 long paintings at different heights. This gives the whole layout more interest!

You can always have a centerpiece of large art for the center and then place some shelves, or other paintings in the same theme or colors to match it. Put your best keepsakes on the shelves and ta-da, you’ve made your piece of artwork POP!

However you choose to decorate, please take into consideration about buying from your local artisans to use.

If you’d like to see some of my art in another way, head over to Amazon Handmade. This was the blog I wrote about getting in on that program! Trying to build your brand up is so hard to do. There’s a lot of competition out there on the web. It’s not like back in the day when all you did was take an ad out in the local newspaper.

It’s even harder right now with the virus that’s keeping all the festivals and not having any gatherings allowed.

Well folks that’s it for this one. Hope you learned a little something from this. Or maybe your thinking…”I already knew that”. You’d be surprised at the people that don’t. (LOL)

Stay COOL everyone and keep safe!
