@Laurie Dyer - There's a b photo at the thrift store that I can't get out of my head. It's of a native woman and her daughter (Guatemalan?). The woman is looking away and the girl is facing the camera. It's gorgeous but it doesn't mean anything to me except that I like it. Do I bring it into my house or pass? What if I look it up and find out their story?
Whether you need to maximize limited wall space or simply want a fresh look, display framed art one over another, using tall, narrow wall spaces to their full advantage.
