2. Arranging your art collection
3. Fill small or narrow wall spaces - Remember narrow spaces, especially around entrances or over doorways. Some artists specialize in long narrow pieces.

4. Don't insist on matching frames to your furniture or your other frames. Matching your frames to existing furniture could prove to be a problem in the future when you replace the furniture. A well-designed frame should complement the artwork. In that way, your decor can change a number of times and the art will always look as perfect as it did originally.
Likewise, choosing frames based on the other frames in the room works well with groupings of family snapshots, but not necessarily with your fine art prints and giclées. Their subject matter, color and texture will vary and the framing should reflect it.
Display some pieces in the summer and others in the winter. This is particularly true for seasonal pieces around holidays; or when the subject of the art is clearly a summer scene or an autumn landscape.
Hang a few small pieces together that you hadn't grouped before. A grouping of two or three small framed items can include a small personal item to round out the look.
Your art is meant to bring you a lifetime of pleasure. Preserving it carefully with professional framing and displaying it to it's best advantage will ensure that. Enjoy collecting and displaying your own art collection!
