In this episode, we share all our favorite design tips and tricks. Among the topics discussed:
-We recommend going larger in size, a 30″x 40″ print can make much more of an impact.
-Play with scale, pair large and bigger sizes in groups.
– Always hang art at eye level which is approximately 57″ from the floor. –
Mix the high and low:
-Don’t be afraid to splurge and save! Every room should have an eclectic mix of both.
-Paint is the easiest thing to change.
-Make sure you always try a sample on a blank canvas with no color such as a white cardboard.
– Always check your samples in morning, afternoon and evening light.
Here are a couple colors to try:
