Artful Ideas for Every Room
Make a Tight-Knit Row of Sentimental Family Pictures
Gather up photos, paintings, and silhouettes in plain frames. Begin with a large item centered above a desk or a table (or
simply in the middle of a wall) and at eye level. Add a piece to each side, hanging the frames close enough to touch but intentionally
creating an uneven line on the top and the bottom. Continue, one on the right and one on the left, building out from the center.
You can fill the width of the wall or not. Vary the subject, the medium, and the orientation (vertical or horizontal) for
a playful feel.
