Casa Quickie: Hanging Frames Within a Box

Hanging artwork salon style is too chaotic for some decorators. But, that doesn't mean you have to resort to leveling frames side by side. Instead, you can mix up the size and shape of your frames, but frame them within a box.
For instance, here, 10 photographs were hung within a rectangle at the Room & Board store, but their widths and heights vary. In addition to the rectangular shape the frames build, a near-uniform distance between each frame helps to keep everything looking tidy. Just get a pencil and pad, and prepare to do some math before you hammer any nails. If your artwork is already framed, you'll have to measure it and play around with the arrangements to find the perfect layout. If not, you'll have more flexibility, as you can adjust the matte and frame measurements to fit a layout you prefer.
