Based on my experiences as an interior designer, there seems to be some confusion over hanging artwork. For starters, the artwork’s center should be eye level for the average person. Secondly, the artwork should relate well to the furniture and architectural details around it.
Try to see each area of a room as a composition, adjusting the placement of the artwork according to how it pleases the eye. Always go with what looks and feels right, not with an exact measurement. Still confused? Here are some great ideas on how to display your collections in style.
