Art is the easiest way to add style, personality and color to a space, and, if hung incorrectly, the easiest way to make things look off. Hanging a piece too high is probably the most common mistake, say designers. It should be hung at eye level. Art should be hung so that the middle of the piece is 57 to 60 inches above the floor. If ceilings are tall, you can go a little higher for balance. If you are trying to hang a grouping or gallery, consider the middle of your grouping as the center. Also, make sure you pit the right sized piece in the appropriate place. One or two small pieces above a sofa is not going feel right compared to a larger piece. Speaking of larger pieces, big art can be hung so that the frames bottom is 8 to 10 inches above the sofa back.
Mention color in the kitchen and many people immediately think of the old avocado and gold appliances of the seventies. Kitchens have been stark white for far too long and now designers are incorporating bold colors not only on backsplashes and cupboards, but also on appliances if that is something you would go for. Play up the color with another bold accent color, like red, or keep in calm with black and white.
Not typically included in a palette of neutral colors, new shades of blue are making their way into the more versatile set of colors used in todays home decor trends. By using darker hues in the same family along with a complementary accent color, blue can be used in a wide variety of combinations. If most of your furnishings fall into the typical beige palette, using blue is the new, more understated way to make a statement.
When meeting people, first impressions count and the same holds true for your home. When people walk through the door, the feeling they get from your entryway will set the tone for what they expect from the rest of the house. If your entryway is boring, they are not going to expect much when they walk around the corner. Depending on how much space you have, the entryway is the perfect place for a killer light fixture and some art. If you have room for a console or small table and a chair, make sure that you choose dramatic upholstery or statement accessories. No matter what your decor style, this is where you want to elicit a wow from your family and friends.
