How to Improve Your Interior Design with Strategically Arranged Wall Art

When artwork groupings are nicely arranged, they create a collage effect; when they are improperly hung, they become a mess. To maximize how well each piece reads as a group, decide if you need to rearrange the pieces, alter the spacing, or leave them as they are. How to Improve Your Interior Design with Strategically Arranged Wall Art Seeing your pieces too close to each other is like being in a crowded mall: overwhelming and uninspiring.
