I'm really struggling with something though, and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I hung some photographs this weekend and I'm just not sure.
Backtrack. Look at these bedside vignettes:
See how the artwork is somewhat obscured by the lamps?
I mentioned that I have a few pieces that I'd like to use in our master. We bought two black and white photographs a few years ago in Ottawa at an art show and we both love them. And I have the large painting that I gave Jay for our anniversary last year.
This weekend, I attempted to hang the photographs. I am doing this now, before I repaint the room, so that any extra holes I make can be easily filled and fixed before my pretty white paint goes on.
|Note: large painting will go in the centre of the wall here once it's framed.|
I am struggling with the placement of these photos. I have seen so many beautiful images where a light is covering some of the artwork (as in above). But somehow it just looks to me like I mis-hung these photographs!
Is this how it's supposed to look??? Should I raise the photographs and add a couple other things below? Should I lower the photographs so they sit under the lamp shade?
They look ok from some angles, but completely silly from other angles.
I'm desperate to know what you think. Please chime in.
