6.Plan the Perfect Art Arrangement
PDT : 05/10/2016 Author : Nelson
Hdmi Wall Plate are all too common in our homes. Why? Perhaps hanging art is too much of a commitment. After all, what happens when you grow tired of the piece? Then again, maybe you're just too timid to pick up a hammer, or you fear putting holes in the walls.
Whatever the reason, enough is enough! Now's the time to take the plunge and enliven those barren barriers with an arsenal of artful arrangements.
Carefully determine your arrangement before you start banging holes in the wall. Trace the outline of each frame onto Kraft paper and cut it out. Then tape the outlines to the wall using blue painter's tape.
Think It Through
Move your paper frames around until you arrive at an arrangement you like, then gather your supplies (picture hooks, hammer, level, and tape measure) and start hanging. This same Kraft paper trick also works for tracing and placing mirrors, plates, wall clocks, and sconces.
Stay in Line
Displaying a collection of pictures requires a careful eye. As a rule, a precise grid gives a graphic, formal look. But that's not the only option. An arrangement that's hung within the confines of a square or rectangle but aligned along only one axis (center, top, or bottom) will also appear orderly -- just a tad more relaxed. Placing a sofa or other piece of furniture under the arrangement will help anchor the artwork.
Sometimes an uneven pattern can be more interesting than a precise lineup. The key to a successful stair-stepped grouping: Vary the spacing between frames. Use your eye to gauge the distance. And because stairways are a high-traffic area, use small pieces of adhesive hook-and-loop tape to hold frame corners to the wall.
Stagger the Look
Try something unexpected. Here, instead of hanging a single piece of art over the bed, we created a sculptural grouping of Faceplate and varied the shape, size, and design for interest. The plates are in perfect contrast to the headboard's boxy figure, so they attract attention and draw you into the space. The adjacent wall sports framed fabric cuttings. Bottom line: Trust your instincts. If it feels right, it will work.
