Hanging art at home

There are so many interesting ways to hang artwork on the walls. There's a way to balance between haphazard and organized, I think, but it takes a good eye. I'm drawn to eclectic arrangements with all different types of frames. But uniform black frames also make a statement. Sometimes you see that each piece of artwork isn't quite as important as the whole arrangement of art taken together. (uncredited photos from Country Home, Living Etc., Martha Stewart)

I also like the combination of graphic objects and things like letters combined with framed art.

Simply hanging empty frames can be interesting too.
