The wall space I had to cover was 17 feet long, so I decided to do a few vignettes. I started by hanging a picture (24x20)in the center of the wall with a candle sconce on each side. This will be above the sofa. On the one side , I have a parlor table, above this I hung a mirror with a 11x14 picture on each side. On the other side, is my display cabinet(30 inches high) here I hung another mirror( 12 inches wide x 24 long)with a shelf to match. All are done it antiquey gold tones.
I hang the main pieces at eye level(not mine, I am only 5 feet tall), about 65 inches from floor. I used 2 mirrors because the room is only 11 feet wide, so the mirrors give the feeling that the room is wider.
I like it. It is not perfect, I may tweak it a bit, but I do not think so.

    Wow! That is such a huge space!! I'd love to see pics, It must have been really exciting but also overwhelming!

    Love it! A picture would help my mind's eye to see it. I probably would not put as much up, but I am older and find the prospect of all that dusting overwhelming. At a younger age I most likely would have done the same as you.

      I can't send pictures either. Have to find someone young to show me.

    Mirrors and antiquey-ness...one of my favorite combos! You must be proud, it sounds like it looks great!

    Heh heh heh. I am with Cecilla I am not real savvy with tech either on the other hand I agree with Doris I hate to dust. So I keep my decorations nice but easy to keep looking good.
