Four killer rooms (and a lecture on walls)

Imagine each of these four rooms (thank you nice people at Decorati) with nothing on the walls. Dreary? You betcha. It would, quite simply look like a shop. A nice shop, but you want your private spaces to feel like a home. And what better way to customize and personalize your favorite room, than with a healthy smattering of eye candy. It won't make or break the room, but it will complete the look. Think of it as the decorating equivalent of crossing your T's and dotting your I's.Or adding a swipe of lippy as you dash out the door...

  1. hi gorgeousness. what oh what would i do without your blog for my daily dose? its like my crack.
    thanks for posting the bliss i need to get me through my days. ;)xo

  2. What a difference a bit of gorgeousness makes to a room! They all look fabulous! Tracey xx

  3. I love that third image down but they must have been a nightmare to hang!

  4. Gotta have some artwork on the walls - a room is never finished without it. K xx

  5. Love that mass print hanging of sepia wood scenes. I'm a big fan of "impact" hanging - structured and staggered. One of my favorite wall hangings is Kate Spade's apartment! http://sfair.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-to-hang-picture-like-kate-spade.html
    She uses so many varied shapes and styles, but the effect is stunning.

  6. Love this post. Husband and I have just bought three small prints that are really delicate works (our friend is a printmaking artist) and I want to hang them on the wall so they're the first thing you see as you walk into the apartment.

    I'm going to frame them all identically, but I'm not sure how to best hang them. All in one line, diagonal (like flying ducks of the 70s), two up top one beneath in a triangle? What's the rule of thumb for hanging small prints?

    Any advice gratefully received. :)

  7. Hi Chelsea,
    I think the biggest mistakes people make when hanging pictures are a) hanging them too far apart, and b) hanging tiny images in the middle of a huge wall.
    1. Find a suitable wall, based on size and location.
    2. If it's a tall skinny wall, hang them vertically.
    3. If it's a long wall, hang them horizontally.
    4. 5cm - 10cm between each picture is plenty for smallish frames (regardless of whether you hang them horizontally or vertically).

    I hope that helps? I'd love to see a photo when you're done!
