    Your placements are fine be sure to offset them so it doesn't look so squared off and the one on the mantle should go away it detracts from the beautiful fireplace which should be the center of attention. hope this helps.

    Are there two couches? Idea: place the 3 maps in a group above the couch. The long tree painting beside the chair. The blue sky pieces on opposite positions next to the fireplace and the small tree piece over the fireplace or on the wall it is leaning on in the picture and nothing over the fireplace. Maybe add some taller organic pieces on the mantel with some color..large candles or colorful bottles

    Hi there. First of all - compliments to the painter!!
    Just a little something to think about: Sometimes less is more!!!
    If you really want to hang ALL the paintings up then I would suggest:
    Hanging the two little ones (maps) one either side of the fireplace - staying with the color theme.
    The two big cedars on either side of the television.
    The little cedar and the other little one (with a shack?) on the wall by the single chair, but not in a straight line. One higher than the other.
    The bigger one with houses I would place above the sofa.
    Well hope this helps a bit?

    One other thing is what you are going to do with the fireplace. The bold colors in the paintings somewhat overpower the candles and floral arrangement. I'd suggest placing the flowers in the center and group the candles around it. Also, you might want to find a way to incorporate some of those colors into either the arrangement, the vase or the candles. Not in a big way, but to suggest the room is tied together. You might also bring in a bit of those colors into the pillows.

    the two similar maps I think would look fantastic just rot of the fireplace, one over the the other not side by side. The New York, over on the left, maybe the two smaller pieces under it. The large painting of the tree over the couch, but look for items,to widen the space give it a gallery look, doesn’t have to be paintings. The other two paintings of trees and the cabin next to the chair, add a bench,table under and place framed photos and an interesting bowl for a catch all. Also a large mirror over the mental maybe a gold frame to brighten the Browns.

      Put that one one the wall next to the window, maybe find some antique farm implements, or gears that you can hang up also.

    First I like all artwork but the one you show over the fireplace is just not "outstanding" enough...need more color so I think the one with the trees, barns sitting over by your brown chair would look good over the fireplace. The maps would be good over your couch but color it up with pillows and throws. Then on the left side of the fireplace, the big picture of the tall trees and put nothing on the other side next to your TV. If you want, you could put the two smaller colorful pictures on the wall beside your brown chair.

    Perhaps frame the colorful paintings to make them tie in better to the other framed pics. Maybe in neutral colored frames that match the fireplace stone. I don't care for any pic on the fireplace mantel. How about various colored glass bottles lined up across your mantle to match all the various colors in the paintings displayed around the room.? And yes, brightly colored sofa pillows would also help tie in the brightly colored paintings into the overall neutral tans & browns in the room. You might even want to hang at least one of your tan & black prints next to

    ( above, below or on either side ) each of your colorful paintings to somehow tie the 2 together around the entire room.

    I think a wreath above the fireplace would look great - something with white it to brighten that area with pops of color from the paintings.
