{how to display art: take it to the floor!}

I'm loving the look of artwork on the floor! It really goes along with the current 'undecorate' trend. What I love is the eclectic/collected vibe this gives ... I'm just not sure if I'm cool enough to pull it off myself. I think my family and friends might come over and say, 'So ... when are you planning to hang those photos??' What do you think, would you try this in your own home?













I just love this look!! Happy Thursday :)

I love it too, but you have to have the right type of space to pull it off so it doesn't look undone. You found some great examples here of it done very well! I especially love the second one with the chair and bag in front of it...it takes great art and makes it less intimidating!

This just reminds me that I wish I had more art...to even be able to lean on the floor. Cute pooch.

I'm so with you on this...LOVE this look in a stylized magazine shoot...just don't know that it's that practical for my life!

Gee, I am particpating in a trend and did not know it! I have several pieces sitting on the floor waiting to be hung!

Funny, I have a few sitting on the floor now but they are sitting in the general area where I want to hand them. I like the look but the layout of my 50s ranch doesn't allow me to leave them there permanently.

So true! I think it depends on the style of your home. In a lofty apartment, art/mirrors on the floor look tres chic (think Carrie Bradshaw's apartment)! In a more traditional home, I think it would look like you are still moving in :)

I think that would drive me nuts. I only like the leaning-not-hung look on fireplace mantles.

phew - I am on trend then will all my art leaning on the wall at floor level!

Yes! It is such a care free look.

I"ve always loved the look too...it adds that unexpected layer that makes things interesting! Great pics!

I think a large piece of artwork on the floor looks good, but not so much the smaller pieces. You can't really enjoy looking at artwork that's at foot-level!

I have always done it when it was not cool..and I'm still not cool. LOL! However, I have it leaning on god-awful builder grade stair spindles. It helps hide it along wih an antique book cabinet.

I love how it is such a casual "yeah, I didn't even need to hang it and it still looks awesome" look (c: I really wish that was an option in our house, but with a 4 and a 2 year-old...not so much. I definitely am not a fan of cleaning up shattered glass! Pity. (c:

I love the look personally. I prefer to decorate "unstaged" so to speak... with a sense of ease -- not everything so perfect. Perfect inspiration :)

Sometime I like it and other times it looks too staged. Of course since I have t 75 lb. dogs that would just knock it over...it might not work for me :)

Ohh I LOVE it!! I've seen this, but I hadn't really _noticed_ it until now. LOVE blog land!!

I like it, but I think it depends on the setting. The first one with the small art and large frame really gets me excited.... but I tend to like big empty frames :)

Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my style in 7 (over at B&B)

xo,
Naomi

I must be conditioned to think pictures on the floor means they are waiting to be hung lol
