You can group items by art medium, colors, or subject matter! You can use frames of different sizes or hang the items on the wall directly for a more eclectic look.
With the right combination of items, you can create a one-of-a-kind and eye-catching space that will draw attention and make your room stand out.
You can also display individual pieces, using picture rails or floating shelves, or even have a custom frame made.
