Lately I've noticed more than a few picture arrangements being hung curiously high on the wall. I'm not sure if this is due to a bona fide trend, or if individuals (close friends and relatives of mine) aren't aware that there are, in fact, some general rules to follow that bring cohesiveness and balance to an arrangement. Of course, if the high hung art is your intention, then by all means Hang 'Em High.
If, on the other hand, you are innocently unaware of the very simple design rules about hanging pictures, check out this short list of ten rules compiled by interior designer Christine Craig that will gently help you kick your sky high hanging habits.
