Hanging Small Pieces:
Grouping smaller pieces can add interest and keep them from getting “lost”. Using similar or matching frames and matting make this look more pleasing. If you don’t have a group, a smaller piece should be hung low and close to furniture.
Hanging Pieces In Groups:
The key to grouping pieces together is to space them properly. Space them about 3” away from each other. Try positioning them on floor or a table to get a pleasing arrangement before placing nails and measure carefully before making any holes.
Framed hankies should be hung with center of hanky at eye level. That means center should be about 60 to 66 inches from floor. If you've visited a gallery you will see that frames are not lined up by their top or bottom edges but that pictures are all centered at same height. If your hanky will be viewed from a sitting position – like from a chair or chaise, you should hang at eye level of sitter.
Anything hung behind couch should be placed no more than 8 or 10 inches above back of couch.
These easy tips will have you creating a unique and interesting designer look with vintage hankies in no time!
