My favorite method for hanging artwork is in salon-style clusters. Learn how to combine standout pieces with other mementos for a unique look you can build upon for years to come.
ONE: Start at the center. Pick one piece to take center stage, and then fit other pieces in. “It never fails me. It always ends up looking incredible, and it brings all the pieces to life.”
TWO: Group like colors. Don’t put too much thought into which art will go on which walls. Simply combine pieces that have similar hues. Then assign them to a space and select complementary colors for furniture.
THREE. Mix valued art with ordinary pieces. Part of the fun of salon-style hanging is assembling a variety of art at different price points which also interspersing photos, vintage postcards, music posters and even mirrors or interesting tiles. “Pieces that don’t always get much attention work in well because they are next to things that demand more attention,” Sonja says.
FOUR: Build your collection slowly, “Even if you don’t have much to start with, you can add to it over the years or Sonja says. Start with small clusters and slowly add to your wall as flea-market trips and vacations prove successful.
