Paintings above the sofa - is one of the most common and easiest ways to hang art. The basic rule is that the artwork or a group of them should not occupy more than 2/3 of the sofa area and they should hang 15 - 20 cm above the sofa. Vertical paintings optically increase the height of the ceiling, while horizontal paintings lengthen the wall. Whether we are going to create a wall in a series of paintings over a couch, or hang one large piece of art, the principle of proportionality will help create a beautiful and harmonious decor. A beautiful work of art compensates for the imperfection of furniture or interior.

It is important that the sofa and paintings together form a coherent vertical composition. This composition will make your ceiling look higher, the room is more spacious and luxurious. You can also choose a group of framed art prints or pictures, just don't forget to combine the style of the paintings - this will create a seamless and beautiful style. Mini exposition home wall of various artist's paintings is a modern interior trend.
