How to Hang Pictures

I love a gallery wall! If you're a collector you know that trying to hang all those prints and paintings is a challenge. The image above is a perfect example that it can be done right.

What stands out to me from this image is the color first- or lack of. Even if you collect floral paintings, group together so the colors are complimentary. Another is the way the round mirrors and ram head help break up a sea of rectangles. The furniture placement isn't so bad either. Another must do: be sure the space between all the objects is the same. This is what makes this gallery wall work.
