Picture Shelves and Leaning Art: Relaxed and Interchangeable

You don’t always have to hang your favourite pieces on the wall – try leaning them against it! You can also try standing them on a piece of furniture. This saves you the trouble of hanging them up and gives you the freedom to move them around at will. If you’d like to stand a work of art on the floor, you’ll probably want to choose a large-format and expressive piece to make sure it commands attention even though it’s not at eye-level. Shelves are another way to vary the height of your display. Arranging pictures so they overlap and have a very casual appearance can create a remarkable effect!
