What Houzz contributors are saying:

Everything about this living room shouts "classic," except the art wall, which whispers "unconventional." I love the formal framing of informal sketches, which elevates the art and smooths the transition between abstract art and a traditional room.
Cate West Zahl added this to Decorate With Artful Leanings
Instead of centering the larger scaled piece of art of the mantel, the designer here decided to hang it off-center. This allowed for another piece of art to lean against the mantel to the right. The layered effect looks quite sophisticated, and makes the room feel less formal than it would with just one piece of art over the mantel.
An obvious choice above a mantel is a mirror. But for a more laid-back feel, hang a large piece of artwork off-center and lean a smaller frame against the wall. This uncontrived setup brings a sense of informality to an otherwise formal space.More:A Gallery Wall for Every Personality
On its own, each of the works above the mantel would be too small to fill that slice of wall. The solution? Elevate one, then prop the other to create a sense of motion and even out the visual weight.
