To hang or not to hang, that is the question: I personally got sick of the whole gallery wall trend pretty much as soon as I had the last picture hung above my sofa. So, with that said, I quickly dissembled it and found myself with a surplus of art. Instead randomly hanging it else where in my apartment I decided to take my deconstructed gallery wall and create an overlapping and leaning group on the floor in my office. I liked the look so much that when it came time to decorate the area over my credenza I decided to go nail-free and just layer a few of my favorite pieces.
Some notes for creating this laid-back chic look…well it’s all about the mix. Mix mediums, frames and heights – place taller pieces in the back then lean smaller pieces in front. And if you don’t have a large art collection don’t fret…you can get the same low-key look with a single piece. Whether displayed along the floor, on a mantle or atop a dresser or credenza, this effortless look is perfect for
commitment-phobes renters and makes switching things around easy peasy!
