Cool Idea: Paul Smith's Art Smorgasbord

Cool Idea: Paul Smith's Art Smorgasbord

British fashion designer Paul Smith is always full of surprises. I couldn't help but admire the mismatched medley of art on the walls of his New York store. Be it a framed letter, poster, painting, ink drawing, or photograph, each piece carries with it a story. The styles, colors, eras, sizes, and mediums vary, yet they all fit together beautifully.

To re-create this look, scavenge flea markets, thrift stores, eBay, antique stores, or even your child's drawing stash for a variety of art pieces. Frame memorable letters, scarves — pretty much anything that makes you happy. Just pick pieces you love: whether or not they "go together" isn't really the point. Do you have any tips on hanging a grouping of incongruous art?

Ahh- I need a gallery wall tutorial. I have 4 or 5 oil paintings and 3 framed wood block prints and some stuff from 20x200 that I need to have framed but I don't know how to hang it all up and have it look good and not sloppy...
