Leave Breathing Room for Sculptural Objects

Sculptural objects, like this moose, need a bit more breathing room than framed objects. The extra spacing will help to visually frame the sculptural object, highlighting its shape.

Incorporate Shadow Boxes

To keep unframed pieces from falling flat, place them in shadow boxes before hanging. The deep frame will add depth and create a look that's more graphic.

Group Kids' Art

For maximum impact, hang kids' artwork together. Pair smaller unframed pieces with larger ones, placing them next to pieces with more elaborate frames. The mix of raw and refined presentation adds to the casual look.
