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. Public Service Announcement because you deserve to live in a stylish home.
