Take a step back and read the room! Look for colours, textures and the space you are wanting to fill. It's all about complimenting the space and adding the final WOW piece! You’ll want to gauge how it will look in your space and what size fits best. A great way to help you visualize it in the room is simply by outlining different potential dimensions with painter’s tape, sticky notes or paper. You can then take a step back to take it all in.
Alternatively, if you have a blank canvas, it's time to choose your art and create your space around it!
If you are investing in art, you certainly don't want to buy it and hang it, only to discover your room still feels bare! Remember to take into account the amount of furniture that you have in a room, if it is sparse, then a large piece of artwork will fill the room up with colour, mood and style!
Measure, measure, measure! The height of your art is not to be overlooked! As a general rule of thumb, for the most aesthetically pleasing decor, you should aim to have the centre of the piece be at eye-level.
However, if you’re hanging your piece above furniture, give it some room to breathe by hanging it between 10cm - 20cm above the top of the furniture.
Don't forget to use a leveller and tape measure to make sure your art is centred and straight! Who wants a wonky Slim Aarons right?
Mirrors can help make spaces feel larger because light reflects off the glass and back into the space. Be sure to hang the mirror opposite something you would like to see reflected back. Hanging mirrors opposite windows take advantage of natural lighting, filling the room with light and space!
Similary to art work, mirrors are best to be positioned at eye level.
P.s. A new mirror upgrade in your bathroom can make your bathroom feel BRAND NEW!
