When Hanging Small Art is a Big Problem - Revisited
Small art can be a little tricky to hang when you want it to stand-out and express your individual taste. Are you in a bit of a small art pickle?
Last September Artfinder, one of the largest online art sources, asked Shannon Kaye, our Director of Business Development, for her expert tips for incorporating small scale artwork into home design for their Artbeat zine.
Here are some of the highlights!
2. Create special moments
Another way to use small art pieces to your advantage is to create vignettes. The power of vignettes is that they organize how we look at and move through a space. On my coffee table I have an oil paint ‘parfait’ called ‘Midnight Snack’ by Maya Kabat next to an equally playful Pilea Peperomioides (houseplant) and some color reference books.
3. Turn storage into a stage
Even the most practical of storage spaces can include small sculptures and other decorative pieces to give them more style. And here’s another bonus: when people see art on shelves and cabinets, they tend to keep them more organized and take better care of the practical stuff too. Win-win!
