Picture Rail Perfection


I live in an old apartment with picture rails and I sometimes get a bit stumped for ideas when hanging small prints.  I love the arrangement above... the different shapes and sizes of frames combined with the varying heights works really well to create a gallery feel.  Never in a million years would I have hung a picture as high as the round frame on the left, but it creates a perfect sense of balance don't you think?

You're right Angela... it does look great and a nice idea even if you didn't have picture rails! gxo

This is a cool idea. I had never thought of hanging pictures like that before, thanks.

It looks great doesn't it! I think the black & White theme keeps it consistent, while the varied positioning makes it interesting.

I would love picture rails : )

Love, love, love this! I also have picture rails, & being in a rental have no alternative but to use only them, but had never thought about this! Very cool! Will keep it in mind!

Thanks for the idea! :)
