Picture arranging

I have a tutorial for today, on how to arrange pictures on the wall. This is of course a chapter to be found in many interior design handbooks. Still, we all need a refresher course from time to time, don't we?

My search today started with this post by Anna Spiro of the distinct East-meets-West fusion interiors.


The mini tutorial I found comes from Design FormuLA. It includes several possible arrangements of pictures of various sizes. I found the grids like the one below very helpful.

My most favorite arrangement, one that depicts the importance of harmony in all that we do comes from a painting by Swedish artist Carl Larsson.


It tells me that anything beautiful is even more beautiful when we see it around us, in our homes...


love, Irene

Cathrine-Hello, it is a pleasure having you over here. I look forward to seeing your staircase. I am sure it will be fabulous!

Hereself:Hello, so glad YOU like it!

Helle-Hello, yes, I do love artists such as Larsson who depict "normal" lives.

Add some sparkle!
