People often ask what size their art should be. They worry that large art and accessories will make the room feel smaller. They’ll hang 6 or 7 small items for this very reason. When we bring in a large piece of art, they’ll comment that the room “feels much larger”. Perhaps it’s because a wall that’s full of lots of items can tend to feel cluttered, or perhaps it’s because the correct size and scale helps balance the furniture. It is also helpful because tall items will draw the eye up (so the ceilings feel taller).

If your wall is large, know that large art is the best choice. If it especially large, you could add a pair of vertical art pieces (see above photo).
