Are these frames hung too high?

Seems like I tend to hang artwork too high up on the walls :( I'm wondering if I made the same mistake here...

Yeah, move 'em down about 6" and they'll be perfect.

Yes, and they are also TOO small. If you like this width then they need to be twice as tall. Or 2 really large pieces. Be bold.

Definitely, especially considering it's a room for sitting. I'd hang them somewhere close to eye level for a person sitting down - lowering them about 12". Make sure the center of the artwork (which is gorgeous, by the way) doesn't sit below the knobs on the glass cabinets.

You can test this idea by cutting out of newspaper larger size pieces..then just tape them to the wall in various sizes and quantities, you will get the idea. The bottom of the art, in this case should be just about 8" higher than your chair backs. Doing this will give you the visual concept and will make it easy for you.
