Stacy Weiss: Shadyside, PennsylvaniaEclectic Living Room

The feature wall in the living area sets the tone for the apartment.

Weiss took advantage of the vast wall space by creating a gallery display of art. Spanning the gamut of styles and origins, the pieces are hung asymmetrically, lending to the organic feel of the space. While the thought of fitting all of her artwork was a bit daunting in the beginning, this is now Weiss's favorite spot in her home. "I somehow managed to fit it in and actually add to it from time to time," she says.

Sofa: Charles Series, B&B Italia

    Use brown paper to capture the shapes of art, pin or tape . Or, arrange art on floor for placement.

3. Cover an entire wall. If you have an art collection that keeps growing, go all out on one expanse of wall and make a gallery out of it. Keep the other walls relatively plain to balance out the room.See more of this house

12. Take advantage of ample wall space with a gallery wall. A huge wall can be daunting, but it also provides a great opportunity to make a style statement. You don't need to fill the entire wall at once. Start building your arrangement from the center out, and you can continue adding to it over time until the wall is happily full.Tell us: Do you live in a loft or studio?

Vanessa Brunner added this to Let's Put a Price on Art: Your Guide to Art Costs and BuyingMay 29, 2013

Guidelines for Purchasing ArtBuy what you love. If you feel strongly about a piece of art or it really speaks to you, buy it, regardless of trends or expertise. "Art is worth the extra money when you really love it and feel pretty confident you won't find anything else you like as much," says Singleton. Do your research. Go to galleries and exhibits, and ask a lot of questions. People in the art industry are passionate about their work, and you can learn a lot about what goes into certain mediums and artists' work. Looking at a lot of art will help train your eye, too. You'll develop a style and start to see what costs more and why. Visit design and art websites to see what emerging artists are doing and how art is being used in homes. Take your time. "Give yourself time to develop your own taste in art and, when the time comes, to contemplate whether you really love a piece and want to live with it," says Singleton.Think long term. Alex Farkas, gallery director at UGallery, recommends using the same buying principles for other home objects when you're purchasing art. What's practical? What's worth the cost? What will you still love in five years? "A couple of years ago, everything was covered in resin," says Farkas. "But do you really want that in your home? Think about what's popular versus what's classic."

I like the idea of an art wall . . .. Adam I'm thinking one that would be just kids art work in the family (TV) room behind couch (I've saved a ton of it) and one that would be stuff we've collected over the years. . great room big wall.
