Art placement
All flipped out
January 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
. I have four large art pieces I would like to put on one wall. They are large as you can see in the photos. I was going to hang them in a straight line with tops lined up (they are not same size). But I would like to hear if anyone has a better idea! The wall is 15 ft at its highest, 8 ft at its lowest and is 20 ft long. Can't wait to hear your ideas!!

Hang them where you want them, then review and adjust!

I'd be happier about your plan if they were not all the same size. I'd also prefer an odd number and I definitely would not hang them all in a row.

When I hang a grouping of art, I lay it out of the floor, moving things around until I have a pleasing arrangement. Then I carefully measure and sometimes even make a drawing of the pieces so that I get them hung just as they looked on the floor.

I typically do lay outs on the floor or hang and adjust, but these are too big. As you can see, the four pieces together are almost 20 feet across!! I thought about lining the tops up, or lining the bottoms up which leaves tops in a more random pattern since they are all different sizes. I also considered putting them up in a random pattern but the angled wall is confusing me. I don't want a " stair step " grouping.

Measure them and use blue painter's tape or cutouts of butcher paper to do preliminary arranging before you get out the hammer and nails. If you will use pieces of furniture to group them with it will solve some of your angled wall issue. Art pieces above furniture should be about 75% of the width of the furniture they are with. They should visually attach to the furniture and not float away, within 5-8" of the furniture piece. Hope that helps you make some decisions.
