Awash in warm colors and heavy brushstrokes, this brilliant painting print of Vincent van Gogh’s famous “Irises” depicts a field of flowers in a soft spring breeze. Made in the North America, this impressionist design is printed on cotton canvas, which is wrapped over solid wood bars. The purple, green, red, and yellow tones can brighten up any wall, and it arrives ready to hang so you can get right to decorating.
A floor mirror propped against a wall in your bedroom or entryway looks elegant. Go for a faceted or framed design to suit your room’s decor. Wall mirrors come in all shapes and sizes so pick the right size to fit the wall space and decide on a square, diamond, circular, oval, rectangular or asymmetrical design, among others. Mirrors are highly decorative as well as functional so, if you don’t need one specifically to check out your look, then go for a bold design that makes a statement. This includes overlapping, smoked or colored glass, a woven design or multiple small mirrors fitted together in a pattern.
What size of artwork is correct for different kinds of furniture? That’s totally up to your design vision. As a general guideline, however, many interior decorators recommend shooting for art that occupies about two-thirds to three-quarters the size of your furniture. Large art tends to get noticed more than smaller pieces. What if you have a long sofa or sectional and can’t find any art that’s big enough? One idea is to create an art grouping. Two or three similarly-sized photographs feel like a single unit. When it comes to height, it’s customary to hang art at eye-level. That’s usually between 5 and 6 feet from the floor, although you can feel free to place it lower if it feels more natural for the space. That’s often the case in dining rooms.
Where can you position art and photography in a room? Almost anywhere is ideal. One thing to consider is what you want that particular piece to accomplish. Is it a showstopper, your favorite masterpiece? Then, you probably want it somewhere it gets noticed immediately, such as in the center of an accent wall. Above a fireplace is another spot where people tend to look right away when they walk into a room. Other artwork is complementary in nature. Each painting works together to create a harmonious arrangement in the whole room. These vignettes look beautiful on top of console tables, on bookshelves or hanging above furniture.

This is the option to select if you have important elements near the edges of the image that would end up on the border if you went with a standard image wrap. This is also a way to create the look of an image wrap if you have a photo that is cropped too tightly to extend it around the edges. It works really well for landscapes and still life photography.
