Are you stuck up?

 

I can guarantee that most of you are probably hanging your pictures and artwork too high.  It is one of the firs things I notice when I enter a room.  Hanging pictures too high will cause you to walk around your home with “your nose stuck in the air”.  Without even realizing it, you will begin to look down your nose upon things.  You don’t want people to think that you are better then them or “stuck up”, do you?  There is an easy cure for this.  Standard picture hanging height is 57”-62” from the floor to the center of the artwork.  (That is eye level for the average person.)  57” is the standard height that galleries and museums hang their pictures at as well. By lowering your pictures and artwork you ground the energy in the room making it feel safe and cozy. (You may also notice less tension in your neck.)  In rooms with extremely tall ceilings hanging the picture a few inches above eye level, 64”-67”, will help ground the energy and make the room feel not so big.  This is also a good height to hang pictures in narrow hallways.  The effect will force you to look up at the art instead of noticing how long and narrow the passage may be. Try this simple fix and see if you feel the difference.  Live with the change for a week. If you don’t like it, raise the pictures a few inches but don’t go crazy.  Nobody likes being around “stuck up” folk.
