DecorBook Classic : Hangin' with Art
In this new series, let's look at classic decorating ideas - all easily adaptable in our own rooms.
I'll confess. I'm a fan of blank walls. Rooms need breathing room, especially to give your eye a place to rest. But, don't you kinda love this salon-style grouping? The secret is to have enough blank wall so that the collection becomes a focal point. Arranging art in what's called "salon-style" is a longtime classic. Another time-honored style is the "gallery-wall." Either can easily be incorporated into our rooms. Let's take a look at some rooms to understand both styles. Soon, we'll all be hangin' with art.
