  • double horizontal framesbalance the large mirror

    Odd number placementsare more pleasing then even

  • Opposite corners of artwork balance thevisual weight of the room like a teeter totter!

  • General Design TipsUse paper patterns to determine placement. Odd numbers are more interesting then even. Largest items are seen first in a design when prints are same color. Color is seen first when viewing objects of differing sizes in a group. Adjust gutters, the space between objects, for symmetry. Plan for the viewing height of average person, ----- not tall man or short woman. Look at the overall room for designs that balance each other.
