Placing Art in Your Bedroom
"Use art to tie all the elements of your bedrooms together".
Panoramic Art works well over headboards & sofas in filling space with a large, statement piece.
Video Advice for Choosing & Arranging Bedroom Art
"Headboard or no headboard? Is it high or low? Keep it simple with three art works in a row. Or one, long,
narrow, panoramic piece. If you have a low or no headboard - a grouping of three art works can work beautifully.
Depending on the types and height of your bedside lamps; consider these options: center a great art piece, for the
restful view of the horizon and place two complimentary pieces on either side, over the lamps.
This reflects the symmetry that often works well in bedrooms.
Depending on the width of the wall, cluster smaller art works in an arrangement that extends beyond the bed
and over the bedside lamps. Its easy to use art to tie all of the elements of your bedroom together."
Bringing Art to Your Bathrooms
Video Advice for Designing Your Bathroom Art Layout
"Is the bathroom your morning or evening place? For some of us, there is nothing better than the morning sunshine
streaming in and its mixing with colorful art. This bright combination can energize the entire day.
For those of you seeking an evening retreat, draw inspiration from the soothing effects of water. Choose art in
hues of blue or images of reclining figures to create a relaxed atmosphere.
If there's a free-standing tub and the walls near it are protected from water - consider Stretched Art Canvas - placed
where you can see it while soaking or set a very large piece on the floor, to lean on the wall. Even several small
pieces, on a shelf, can have impact and be easily moved or changed to suit your mood.
If there's a wall by the sink with a bit of space, consider a pair of lush botanicals that remind you of fresh air
and nature. The bathroom, with its limited space, is still a great room to get creative when placing art."
Arranging Art in Your Dining Room
"Make sure your guests enjoy the view from your dining room table".
Video Advice for Your Dining Room Art Arrangements
"The dining room is a great space for artwork. Even in homes with an open layout, where the dining room is
part of the kitchen or family room, there's often wall space just waiting for the right piece of artwork.
The layout of your furniture can help guide where you position the art on the wall. For instance, if you have
a buffet table or sideboard - use a tried and true rule - hang the center of the artwork at approximately
57 inches from the floor. This ensures ease of viewing the art while standing or sitting.
For a wall without furniture, create an arrangement of several pieces of dining sizes to spark dinner conversation
and even whet the appetite. Though it may feel unnatural, consider hanging the entire arrangement closer to the
floor or ceiling than you might be accustom. This bold approach can create a dramatic statement that keeps
everyone at the dinner table long after the meal is done. Art and food are perfect partners in dining."
Enlivening Your Living Room
"The living room is about your personality and how you express it".

"The living room is all about your personality and is wide open, in terms of how you express it.
Consider how you use your living room. Is it formal or a place where everyone hangs out? How do you
want family or guests to feel when they're in the living room? Inspired? Relaxed? Playful?
It's often tempting to center one large artwork above the sofa - because you're done and you've only created
one hole in the wall, if you're lucky. But. Be fearless. You can really create impact by
grouping several pieces on the same wall.
Start at the center with one piece as the focal point and add other pieces of varying sizes to the left and right.
It's not necessary to form a straight line with the tops and bottoms of the frames.This is what makes it dynamic.
Keep frames simple. Use white mats and dont worry about matching the art with the sofa. Use accent pillows
and accessories to complete the look. The arrangements are only limited by your imagination."
How to Create a Focal Wall
1. Use One Big Statement Piece
2. Use Several Similar Pieces
3. Create a Gallery Wall
Option One: "Get one, big, statement piece two-thirds the size of your sofa or bed."
Option Two: "Have multiples of similar pieces of art in the same style or color palette, so that they work together.
Put them next to each other so they look like one big piece of art. Take measurements between
the sofa and ceiling and center the art vertically in that space."
Option Two: "Create a Gallery Wall. Start with an anchor piece and offset the others around that center piece.
Keep color balance in mind with accents and pops of color spaced intermittently without all your color stuck on
one side or the other, and keep it equally spaced around the gallery wall. Make sure you have different sized
pieces of art - some vertical, some horizontal and don't forget the teenie-tiny pieces."
Current trend in creating a gallery wall is making sure the pieces fit the entire wall from sofa to ceiling
and wall to wall. Don't be afraid to put them really high or really low. Just fill the entire wall."
How to Choose, Arrange & Hang Art - Properly, Easily & Creatively
"I'm not gonna show you how to hammer a nail into your wall. I'm sure there's a guy named Howie, who can show you how.
I want to show you and teach you the principle of how you make decisions on art and placement.
Tall, vertical space requires tall art. A horizontal space...you'd be better off with horizontal art.
Lesson number one Ladies: don't let your husband choose the art placement in your home.
Invariably, your art will be hanging way too high. And Sir: step away from the toolbelt."

How to Choose the Right Picture Frame
When choosing a frame - you want to enhance the image and not detract from it.
What Is Stretched-Canvas Art?
Your art piece can be ordered printed on anything from standard poster paper,
to premium museum-grade paper stock, to artist-grade stretched-canvas.
A stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which your print is transferred
to canvas for an artistic look with excellent depth and texture. Using a special heat laminate process, we transfer
the inks from your selected print onto the surface of 100% cotton, acid-free canvas.
We skillfully stretch the canvas onto handmade solid wood bars and finish the piece with a hand-painted edge.
A protective acrylic, varnish coating is added to eliminate glare while shielding your against dust, moisture & fading.
A mount is braced in the back for easy hanging and removal from your wall.
What is a Giclée Print?
Giclée is French for "to spray". It is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto
a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make Giclée prints appear much more
realistic than other prints. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution
that make Giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
What Are Wall Murals All About?
