Wall art is changing and people seem to want real master pieces in their living rooms, trully inspired in savage, contemporary and subjective details.
DecoNewYork presents to you its top tips on to place art in your living room set:
1. Hang art at eye-level
If hanging a piece of art on a blank wall, be sure to hang it so that the middle of the artwork is about 57” high or at eye-level. Although it may be tempting to hang art higher on taller walls, this can throw off the rhythm and balance of the room design.

2. Place art 6-12 inches above furniture
If hanging art above a sofa or other furniture, be sure not to hang it too high, making it feel disconnected from the whole design.
3. Size is crucial
A common interior design error is to choose art that is too small for the wall. A good rule is that art should take up roughly 4/7 of the space.
4. Try a gallery.
A wall gallery behind a sofa can create visual interest and often looks better when extending beyond the furniture. Try using a similar color scheme, such as black and white photographs, or incorporating a focal piece. Vary the size and shape of the art for even more contrast and visual interest.
5. Hang art above a fireplace.
Don’t have a lot of wall space? Create a focal point by placing art above your fireplace. Art looks nice when it is roughly the size of the fireplace.
6. Flank the fireplace
If you don’t have cabinets or shelves, try flanking the fireplace with art. This can create a sense of balance through symmetry and be a wonderful place for art in a living room with limited wall space elsewhere.
And this is how you should handle some living room digital art. You should definitely give it a try.
