Most of us make the mistake of hanging our pictures too high, sitting them in storebought frames on top of mantles and dressers. A grouping of most things is stronger than something on it's own and here are some great examples of how to do it right although maybe not in the most expected way.

hung where it will be seen-and that doesn't have to mean in the kitchen!

Mixing it up-classic frames and pictures offset the contemporary Tricia Guild furniture
Some of my favourites are in those unexpected places, usually lower than what you would expect and I do love a black and white animal photo
what looks interesting now is art that is interesting in itself-a mix of photography, family treasures with not much more than sentimental value, original art whether from established artists or those who are up and coming.
If this all seems a bit intimidating there are talented people available to give you a hand. Many of the local galleries also have professionals who hang the art and help you create your own gallery.
