OVER THE FIREPLACE: How to hang your art series

One of the prime locations for displaying your favorite art piece or pieces is above the fireplace and mantle. The trick here is to make sure all the proportions are right and your art does not overpower your fireplace.

You can choose to hang one large piece or create a linear arrangement of 2, for example, just make sure that the overall width of the pieces does not exceed 2/3 of the mantle. Leave some space between your art and the mantle too: anywhere between 4 and 12 inches depending upon room ceiling height.

Here are few good examples of how this looks when done right:
