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.

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.
