We’re all looking for different and creative ways to display artwork in our homes. You
can exhibit different pieces of art at different times of the year or in different rooms, or perhaps even demonstrate your mood through the art you choose to show.
You can layer different sizes of art on bookshelves using different types of frames or frames that are the same color as the bookshelves. Alternate with books and other decorative objects to create an eclectic, yet cohesive look.
I like the look of hanging framed art in front of a bookshelf - in front of the books you’ve never yet read and won’t miss if they’re covered by your art.
Display shelves (or floating shelves) are also a nice way to rotate your art at different times or depending on your mood. Since you just prop up the framed art on the shelves, you don’t need to nail into the wall so there's no "commitment”.
It’s like having your own little art gallery that you can change whenever and however you want. (I do this in my own studio and I love the look!)
If you have the room, and you like the “studio” look, you can use artist’s easels to display your framed art - large and small. Some larger studio easels allow you to display two pieces at the same time.
Hang art in your kitchen. That’s right - you can hang art in your kitchen, and it doesn’t have to have anything to do with food. I have done this in my home.
With my large Yorkie Art Print Magnets, I created a “Yorkie Gallery Wall” on the side of my refrigerator. It makes me happy to look at while I’m cooking or doing other things in the kitchen and, after all, isn’t art supposed to make you happy and lift your spirits?
Display your art where you can see it - anywhere in your home. Art can be placed anywhere you want it to be. There are no rules that say you can’t have art in the bathroom, the laundry room, or any room for that matter, where you want a little inspiration…
