Fun fact about me #34: I tend to jump the gun. Case in point: last week when I posted a waffle about whether or not to paint my living room/dining room yellow, I casually mentioned that I wanted to replace the current chandelier in the dining room and purchase a larger piece of art.
But then I got to thinking…what if I hung two or three horizontal rows of pictures rather than just one large piece? After all, I’ve been admiring images like this:
So this weekend I did some preliminary hanging. With placemats. And painter’s tape. This is how the back wall could look with two rows of pictures:
And this is how the dining room could look with one larger piece of art — the room could probably take an even larger piece:
So what do you think? Would two or three rows of art be distracting or a great focal point? Is one large piece a better way to go? Obviously, a big part of the decision depends on the artwork itself, but let’s say that I could find something great for either configuration.
