Aim low

People often have the habit of hanging pictures too high. When in doubt – hang them lower! You should never be scared of hanging your artworks low!

Mix it up

We believe that anything can be art. Try not to be too precious about art and enjoy mixing high and low styles.  It’s important to make sure the energy is right around the work. The more eclectic the artworks, the more successful. Nothing is more exciting than mixing ‘proper’ art with kids art and your own photography.

Keep it fresh

Sometimes you buy a work and five years later, it looks dated, so what do you do? You hang it in a different way. Put it in a collage in a salon hanging. It’s not the main player anymore but it still communicates something. In that sense, it’s one of the best reasons to revamp your house. Rehang the pictures, reframe them, and rearrange them. Suddenly it has a different message.
