Tips on Filling Your Bare Walls

Do you ever walk into someone's home and immediately feel at ease? Maybe you feel energized or relaxed, but somehow it just feels right. Often this is because the owners have hung artwork and wall decor that is the correct scale for the room as well as the right styles and colors that complement the other pieces in the room.

Dining Room Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This dining room, one of my client projects, shows how the use of artwork and wall decor can create a feeling of beauty and harmony.

This week I'll give you a few of my own designer secrets for selecting and hanging artwork in your own home. It's really not difficult once you know the tricks, but it's one of the most common mistakes I see when visiting prospective clients. Just click on each photo for more info and a zoomable image. Be sure to take a look at all of our amazing selections of artwork, wall decor and wall sculpture, wall clocks, and wall mirrors.

Feathered Beauty Framed Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Secret #1 - Make sure you hang your artwork at eye level. Most people hang their art much too high. Since the average eye level is 5 feet, a good rule of thumb is to place the middle of the art piece or grouping about 5 feet from the floor. The set of four feather prints above, hung at eye level, create a vibrant and harmonious touch.

Secret #2 - Make sure the artwork you select is proportionate to the wall on which you're hanging it. Large pieces of art are wonderful to place over a sofa or a buffet. They should be hung no more than six or eight inches above the furniture piece so that they are anchored and not floating in space. Consequently, a fairly large piece of artwork or a grouping of two or three is usually required. The three pieces above are in perfect proportion to the sofa.

Secret #3 - Always select artwork and wall decor that reflect your personality and personal taste. You can add color and pizzazz to your decor with just a few well selected and well placed pieces. The two tone contemporary wall art above adds a shimmery contemporary touch.

Patina Oversized Abstract Hand Painted Artwork - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Secret #4 - If you have a very large blank wall consider an oversized piece of artwork. The vibrant painting above is anchored by the floor lamp and accent chair creating a harmonious vignette in an otherwise large and impersonal space.

These are just a few of the many types of artwork and wall decor pieces that are featured on our Innovations Designer Home Decor online shopping boutique. Please take a look at our large variety of artwork including wall decor & wall sculpture, abstract art, coastal and tropical wall decor, landscapes, seascapes, floral artwork, and much more.
