Where you hang a picture is just as crucial as the height of it. A picture or art piece can really make or break the decor of a room. Colors from a painting are normally blended nicely with the rest of the room decor to give the impression they are the perfect match.
If you buy a painting but when you hang it up you suddenly don't like it anymore then don't just give up and discard it. You should instead hang the painting around other parts of the house or building to see if you can find that perfect fit. You will find that the picture may not work in many rooms but looks absolutely stunning in one particular room with different furniture and colored walls.
A good painting or picture should really draw the observer in and people often say they get 'lost' in a great picture. This is a great compliment and means that the painting or picture can be so gripping and shows so much depth it is hard to keep your eyes off it.
