Leave paintings out of the frame (and off the wall)
Art are is a sure-fire way to elevate the design of any room, but that doesn’t mean you have to go the traditional “frame it and hang it” route. Instead, try putting an open canvas on a shelf or even propping a larger canvas on the floor. As long as the piece looks intentional, it will provide an extra layer of interest that a more traditional display would not.
Typically, the best canvases to leave outside the frame and off the wall are modern, monochromatic pieces. Opt for a large floral piece or impressionistic painting opposed to a portrait or detailed landscape.
