Can photography be hung in the same room as contemporary (not abstract) art? art?

I don't have any pictures that would be helpful, but if anyone has a pic or a link to a pic that shows art/photos in the same room, I'd like to see.

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but if you want photos to look more like paintings, you can have them printed on canvas. I did this with one of my photos and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

Think of visiting a gallery that sells paintings and photography. Absolutely. Not next to one another but definitely in the same room.

I think photography can go with anything, its more how you frame it and hang it. Check out my blog post here on artwork (http://www.peltierinteriors.com/artwork/) and visit my pinterest board with lots of artwork photos (http://pinterest.com/houseofpeltier/artwork/).

Thanks, Amy. I checked out your links and was inspired to do a new project-remove family black and white photos from a single, boring "collage style" frame and group them in their own individual frames for more style and interest. A great inexpensive makeover for my hall and foyer!

I think high definition photography can be very uplifting and a great decor addition. Think about it... in just moments a great piece of photography can take your mind to so many places. I awaken to St. Thomas every morning and in my family room I have an amazing enlargement of a lighthouse on Tybee Island which is near Savannah. In my office, I visit Key West. There is no limit to the beauty of photography - animals, flowers etc. Check out my Etsy.com shop, nancyhehmann.

You can use both in the same room. Either on different walls or tastefully together to create interest and difference. Try to keep the cohesiveness with color or framing or subject matter.

Sorry, old post.
