Mix and match
Shelves take up space and there’s no need for them to look boring. Insert prints, small paintings, photographs or sculptures between objects and books.

Tape it out first
For awkwardly shaped spaces such as your stairs, run masking tape down the centre of the area that you want to cover with art.

Make use of natural light as best you can or turn spot lighting to focus on your artwork.

Walls aren’t the limit
Don’t limit yourself to walls. Window ledges, mantle pieces, bedheads and breakfast bars can all be used to prop up pieces of art.

Create a view
If you have a bland wall that’s crying out for a window, hang a landscape or a collection of pieces that suggest the great outdoors can be found on the other sid.

Follow the space
If your ceilings are high, go up, if your walls are squat, go wide! Art can be hung in a stack or along in a row. You can create swarms of artwork to fit any shaped space.
