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.

You will usually want to go for something that is 16 - 20 inches or more unless you have a specific need for smaller pillows.
