Hanging artwork in your home may make you feel like you’d need a degree in art to get it right, but it doesn’t have to be so stressful. Frames freaking you out? Use washi tape to display your art, with the bonus of no holes in the wall. Don’t want to put tape on the walls? Prop your art against walls from a position on the floor or on a bureau – even a deep headboard. Can’t pick what art to hang? Hang it all in a mix-and-match gallery wall, without worrying too much about clashing or height. Overwhelmed? Pick one or two pieces you can’t live without and let the art speak for itself. Finally, remember that art doesn’t have to be expensive – print some of your favorite photos and get them off your camera and onto your walls.
