Only 800 of the 12,000 paintings submitted to the Royal Academy each year can be exhibited there, leaving the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery to display and sell much of the remaining work for the artists. The South London gallery is in it's 25th year of exhibiting the work in this way.

Aside from the colour or the interior paint of the house, there are other things that might give more life to the house. You may try to hang some wall decors in order to add more statement to the over-all design of the house. And here below are some of the most significant tips on how to choose the appropriate wall hangings for your house.

Where It Should Be Placed

In considering a wall decor or even any home decor, you should consider the place where it should be placed. The placement of the material plays a vital role in choosing an appropriate wall decor. According to acmehowto, "for convenience as well as visual appeal, hangings should be placed with a minimum of a handspan from corners, door frames, window frames and other features. Keep in mind that having a wall hanging close to the same height as a window or door frame may feel awkward."

Number's Game

Aside from the placement of the wall decors, you would also want to consider the numbers of wall decors that you will be using. It is good to see a number of decors, but of course it should be proportion with the size of the wall. Aside from that, acmehowto suggested that, "wall hangings will have more visual impact and be more elegant if at least one, and preferably both of the adjacent wall areas are clear of competing decorative elements. A good rule of thumb is that if you are standing about 8 feet away from the wall, directly in front of your hanging, competing decorative elements should be barely, if at all visible in your peripheral vision."


In choosing the wall decor, the primary thing to consider is the colour of the decor. It should likewise complement the area where it will be placed. A colour that is not fitting for a room or area in the house would likely distort the harmony of your home. That is why it would be wise to consult experts before purchasing any wall decors.
