I’ve got art on my mind these days as I’m working on expansion of my own art prints online and also updating spaces around my home with personal and collected pieces.
Symmetrical grid art arrangements are timeless, as a pair displayed vertically or horizontally, as a triptych across a sofa or bed, or a large group of the same frame varying the art or photography within the borders of the mat.
I’m not a huge fan of a cluttered gallery wall with every inch filled, I prefer to see a little space around the artwork or have it cleverly hung or displayed in an asymmetrical way that still feels balanced. I gathered up a few displays that I found inspiring for their creative approach to grouping with my “notes to self” written above.
scatter frames and small canvases across brass rail shelves
arrange trio of ocean paintings in vintage wood frames
display large and small canvas paintings in vintage wood frames
cluster an even numbered set of pencil frames and hang them asymmetrically
stack smaller frames below a trio of frames hung from rails
equally space varied size frames in a larger grid
hang groups of four as a corner focal point
layer frames across a picture ledge in varied heights
arrange a collection of matted abstracts in gold frames
layer botanical prints on the wall and above a mantel
scatter art across a long console, large scale and smaller format, hanging and leaning
make the arrangement follow the staircase angle
pair landscapes, one hanging, one leaning
create a trio on the right to balance the TV on the left
vary frame sizes above a floating shelf
fill vertical space with asymmetrical arrangement
