There comes a time in every parents life when they look at their walls and are overcome with indecision. This indecision is paralyzing, I know this because I too have been there. The task of picking out your portraits does not have to be a daunting one. The first thing you have to do is simply pick the place where you want to hang the portraits.
Picking where you want to hang portraits, keep three things in mind.
In this series of blog posts I will show you some fun canvas groupings, some require more nails in the wall than others – while some you can put up with double sided sticky tape!
The first canvas grouping is one I actually use in the studio. It hangs right in the middle of my studio. I am a lover of symmetry so everything I do has been very thought out to make sure they hang level (much to my husbands dismay as he is the one who as to make sure its even).
The portrait on the left is a horizontal 30×40 and the vertical portrait on the right is a 20×30. Since they are both 30 inches on the vertical side they hang perfectly and create a nice grouping. This would look great on a wall above a fire place, above a couch or even above a crib. When using the blank space above big pieces of furniture you have to go larger in order to not dwarf the portrait… surely the portrait should be the star not the couch!
Stay tuned for more tips on creating wall galleries in the near future. Not only will I be sharing grouping ideas, everything will have the sizes, so when you see something you love, you will know the sizes!
