The Common Art-Hanging Mistakes We Keep Seeing Over and Over

2018-06-11_11-39-11

Though I’m a firm believe in the power of doing whatever you damn well want—and in fact applaud design rule breakers—sometimes design “mistakes” don’t make a room feel rebellious. They just make a space seem sad. Read on to see if either of these art hanging no-no’s is currently on display in your home. And then learn how you can remedy and re-hang the situation.

Mistake #1: Hanging art too high

I see this mistake the most often. It seems so trivial, but even a piece of art hung a few inches too high can make a whole room feel “off.”

What do I mean by too high? Because factors are different for every home—where the art is going, what it will be hanging above, how high the ceilings are—there’s no one-size-fits-all formula that can tell you exactly where on your wall an art piece needs to go. But, there are some tips you can remember that might help you remedy this mistake if you’ve realized some of your art is too high.

34506993_10160309743045005_1776390072669569024_n

Saturday, June 16th in Poughkeepsie

Fun and informative evening with Mr. Tom Ilich. He will be presenting a lecture on the history of building the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge, now known as the Walkway Over the Hudson. The lecture will cover the courage needed to overcome the challenges of creating the Bridge in the 1800’s, the design process underwent to get to the final design and the criticism and upgrades surrounding the entirety of it. As part of the lecture, he will also be presenting his documentary “Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge – Past, Present & Future”.

The film includes interviews with key players in transforming the abandoned railroad bridge into the scenic Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park that has become a world class tourist destination. Mr. Ilich’s lecture will provide an overview of the technical challenges of any major river crossing, design types and structural principles. He will also speak to the political challenges involved in building the bridge in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

We will also be celebrating Path Through History Weekend—a showcase of New York State’s rich and fascinating history and will feature hundreds of events happening at historic and cultural destinations throughout the state. You don’t have to be a historian to appreciate New York State’s rich heritage. New York’s new Path Through History helps you discover, experience and appreciate the state’s amazing past. A wealth of memorable experiences awaits you – from living history museums, to forts and military landmarks, to the homes of presidents, great writers and artists. With an unparalleled network of museums, historic sites and cultural institutions, Path Through History takes you across the state to discover events of the past and learn how they reverberate today.

Complimentary for Walkway members. For non-members – donation suggested, or take this opportunity to become a member.

THE MODERN ETIQUETTE GUIDE TO HOSTESS GIFTS

hostess-gifts-guide-2015Not all hostess gifts come equal… While you may bring a good bottle of wine or a designer scented candle to a dinner party, you’ll want to splurge a little more if you’re staying with someone for a few days to a week.

If you have no idea how much you should be spending on a hostess gift, a good guide to follow is to estimate how much they’re spending on your dinner/stay/etc. If you’re ravaging their fridge and wine cellar every day for a week, it might warrant a bigger present than if you were simply crashing their couch, and drinking their tap water for two days.

Keep your budget in mind while shopping too. While you might want to splurge on a nice gift for a friend who’s hosting you over the Holidays, there’s no reason to open a credit line for it. Make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re spending, and that goes for all gifts. CONTINUE READING AT SAVVY HOME
