Just No. Or, How to Hang Pictures II

Hanging pictures that are too small above your couch is like talking to someone with spinach in their teeth. It’s distracting.  It feels wrong.  Do you say something?  Do you nonchalantly stand on their couch and ask for a hammer?  Sometimes I do.  And. heaven. help. me. if. they. are. hung. too. high. and. too. small. It’s too much. Please.  You can’t.  Help me help you. The art should be 1/2 to 2/3 the size of whatever it is hanging above.  And NOT float mysteriously high on the wall.  It needs to be hung in relation to the objects around it.

Just No. Or, How to Hang Pictures.

Unless you are living in a house full of giraffes, and by giraffes I mean the actual animals, you are not to hang your pictures on top of your walls.  I, even for example sake, could not bring myself to hang the above picture any higher. This is correct: Hang artwork in relation to furnishings. If the picture hangs in a hallway then hang it about eye level or about 57 inches from floor to center of picture.
