Casa Quickie: Hang It Diagonally

It's a dream to curate a personal collection of original art, but it's not always in the budget. Sometimes, though, just the frame you use to hang something or the way it's hung is visually intriguing enough that what's behind the glass is of little consequence. Artists, designers, and art directors Jonathan and Annie Zawada made the most of a simple drawing by hanging it diagonally in their Sydney home, photographed by Todd Selby. The sketch itself isn't particularly arresting or bold, but the atypical way it's hung makes it eye-catching. Maybe framing a simple doodle, an old love letter, or the like and hanging it 45 degrees off will be just the thing to hold you over until you can afford to bid on originals at Sotheby's. P.S. How rad is that matchstick floor lamp?

Fairly certain that is a chemical structure. Not just a drawing.

We did this with a frame... we loved the frame over the peep hole on the set of FRIENDS and we'd been looking for a cool frame that we could use over our peep hole. We finally found one that was square so I hung it on the diagonal over the peep hole - we love it! (actually hubby liked it better hung straight but oldest daughter and I liked it better on the diagonal lol)
