Lighting is an important consideration for wall art. Carefully placed spotlights can draw attention to an attractive piece of artwork. The lighting does, however, need to be subdued to avoid inadvertent glare. Be careful to balance the room by not placing all your wall decor in one half of the room. Experiment with the positioning before you commit to hanging the pieces. You can create a nice touch of diversity by using different sized frames in paintings and mirrors.
A large decorative mirror or a bold painting with vibrant colors is often chosen to be the focal point in a room. In this instance, the piece should be hung over a fireplace, or on a wall facing the entrance for maximum effect. Large wall mirrors can create space in a small room and can be used to great effect when hung opposite a window. They can also provide an interesting optical illusion when used along a narrow hallway.
One very popular type of modern decor is called minimalist decor. In this decorating style less is more. The idea is to keep furnishings and accents to a minimum. Generally, all the pieces in the room will have their space and function and nothing more is added. If you have ever seen pictures of modern homes where there is a small smattering of furniture in a large room and a lot of open space left, this is a great example of minimalism.
