I need help with the size of the artwork I need above my console table. The table is 72” wide. I have 74” from the table to the highest point where I’d like it to hang the artwork. I have photo on plexi that measures 40” wide x 60” high. Would this picture be too narrow or too tall for the console? I’d really appreciate some assistance. Thanks in advance.

IMHO: Put up what you love to look at. If you feel it is too small maybe you can put things on the console on either side of it to compliment it.

Practically every room shown has either white or grey walls—bleh. As for the “focal point” room—no, my eyes did not immediately go to the artwork, they immediately went to the floor lamp on the right because it’s black against a white wall & has an interesting shape. The artwork was muted and boring.
