A randomly placed or poorly sized piece of artwork can make an entire room look chaotic. “It’s important to pick pieces that are to scale with the wall that you’re putting them on,” says Marissa Sauer, interior designer and founder of Design MACS. “A piece that is too small could look a bit random. And a piece that’s too big can make the room look small and cluttered.” Sauer recommends that each piece of artwork relate spatially to something else in the room. For example, if you have a 150cm sofa, choose a 120cm painting. “The art has got to connect to something,” she says.
