Check out the unique way one designer brought together some art pieces, which you may not have initially thought to hang together… The frames are all similar in scale and simplicity, they also feature metallic finishes, although not in the same tones. These pieces are all relatively neutral, which is a good thing, as they’re set on a gingham wall backdrop. The picture lights bring an even greater sense of importance to the grouping. Success!

It may be oversize, but we think its perfection in this small space. This large piece of art works well with the room’s eclectic style and color palette. The simple float frame adds a nice juxtaposition to the space’s traditional mouldings. We think bigger is better, at least in this case!
