Lately I've been loving art that is hung all the way up to the ceiling. It is dramatic and gives the illusion of even higher ceilings. Generally the rule is that art should be hung at eye level, but I think exceptions can be made when it's hung in a vertical grouping with uniform pieces of art. I love a good gallery wall as much as the next gal, but I often find myself craving the uniformity and symmetry of a vertical row of art. In a client's home, we are lining both sides of an arched doorway with uniform framed pieces, from the baseboards all the way up to the crown molding. I can't wait to share pictures with you!
Here are some chic rooms with art that goes all the way up.

A perfect way to implement this idea is to buy an antique book of illustrated plates and frame them.
