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.

The Keys to Making a Gallery Wall Look Timeless (Not Trendy)

2018-05-09_10-43-45

Gallery walls have been going strong for a while now in home design. That’s probably because they’re the perfect solution for filling up blank wall space—until, well, they’re not. If we are being honest, gallery walls are actually pretty difficult to pull off. Sure, it’s your home and ultimately anything goes. But haven’t we all seen a gallery wall or two that’s awkward, either in terms of the spacing or placement of pieces, frame selection, or heck, even the amount (and style) of items? A gallery wall should really always be a work in progress—something that continues to grow until it reaches the state of being potentially wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor salon style for maximum impact. A small cluster of random artwork on a wall feels too try-hard, right? But I guess you’ve got to start somewhere and acquire works that mean something to you over time. So as you go about that process, let’s take a look at some fully “mature” salon walls that get it right and figure out why. That way, you’ll have some guidance and inspo for your own project. Keep Reading on ApartmentTherapy.com >>>

Walter De Maria: Truck Trilogy

dem-black-truck-aDia Art Foundation in Beacon, NY presents Walter De Maria’s Truck Trilogy in Dia:Beacon. Begun in 2011 and completed posthumously, the Truck Trilogy consists of three classic Chevrolet pickup trucks, which have been stripped of all extraneous elements and details. Placed vertically in the trucks’ flatbeds are circular, square, and triangular polished-stainless-steel rods. Similar to De Maria’s Bel Air Trilogy (2000–11), the Truck Trilogy juxtaposes the elegant lines of mid-century American industrial design with the geometric vocabulary that underscores more than fifty years of the artist’s practice. This installation is organized as part of a year of programming in celebration of Walter De Maria’s art, marking the fortieth anniversary of The Lightning Field, The New York Earth Room, and The Vertical Earth Kilometer, each commissioned by Dia and completed in 1977.

Support for the fabrication of Truck Trilogy was provided by Gagosian Gallery.

Add Impact Above The Sofa

11-decoration-ideas-above-the-sofa-homebncYour couch is the hub of family activity and a place that guests will gravitate to. That empty space is the perfect opportunity to make a bold, gorgeous visual statement. We’ve rounded up some captivating, inspiring ideas sure to add major impact.

That is a huge area and should be treated as a huge area when thinking of accessories that will work. It other words, think big!
