When I look at artwork, the first thing that catches my eye is how it is positioned
in relationship to the objects around it. Like in this photo here from a past Fast Fix Friday video.
When artwork feels “visually” connected it has a natural flow and feels well balanced in the space. You will notice that the floor lamp is creating the visual connection to the artwork. The collection is laid out on a diagonal which leads your eye up, creating balance with the tall bookcase on the far left. This vignette shouts cozy, reading nook!


This video explains the “visual” connection even further, describing the distance a piece of  art should be hung above your furniture.
