Balancing Act: Matching Your Art and Furniture

Balancing Act: Matching Your Art and Furniture

Getting the proportions of your furniture and wall art right can be a tricky balancing act. Fortunately, decorative items can bridge the gap between what is hanging on your wall and the furniture that rests along with it. In this image 3 delicate line drawings are paired above the right side of a substantial console table while a tall vase and cherry blossom rest on the left. The vase fills in blank space on the wall behind it and leads the eye towards the wall art, which draws your gaze back down to the console, creating a sense of visual balance in the space.
