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

Hi Irene,
thank you for visiting my blog! The picture arranging-adwiser was very interesting, and I will have that in mind with our own staircase! Have a nice Sunday!

Best wishes

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.
