How to Decorate Stairs

Hanging art in the stairwell is always tricky.  There's just no easy way to do it.  And the more elaborate a grouping you make, the more difficult it is to get the spacing and design correct.  In the photos below you'll notice that the before pictures show some pretty chaotic-looking walls. There is no rhyme or reason to the way the art has been hung because over time, pictures have been added or taken away and replaced, and the grouping once there is no longer attractive.

However, in the redesigned grouping on the right, the "holes" in the grouping have been filled, the sizes have been adjusted to be in proper scale, the spacing is more uniform and the overall effect is much more pleasing to the eye.

We've written two exclusive and very informative books dealing with the subject of designing wall groupings, and how to hang art work, whether it be a single image or an elaborate gallery wall. The first book is called "Where There's a Wall - There's a Way" and the second is an eBook we just published called, "The Secret Art of Hanging Art".  Read on for more information on both.

I've been a corporate art consultant in Southern California for the past 20 years and I've published a book of 101 wall grouping ideas, together with the design principles you should know before decorating any wall with a wall grouping or gallery wall design.

The book is 128 pages of illustrations, including sizes, templates, installation tips and photographs.  It incorporates framed art, mirrors, shelves, plants, and objects d'art into the designs and has been used as a wall grouping textbook by several colleges.
