Mixed up art

I love symmetry and order, especially when it comes to art displays and gallery walls. I think it must make me feel like everything in the world is right and under control. But lately I've been loving art walls where everything isn't placed just so. Spaces where they've mixed different sizes, different genres and different colored frames. It's so much more interesting and it feels so friendly and approachable. Like the art is your friend and they just want you to curl up and stay awhile. Maybe it's because it's Fall and I want to hibernate, but these rooms really speak to me.

What do you think? Do you like your art orderly or a little mixed up?

I'm an orderly art person, and I like lots of art or very little art on walls. Old prints by Max Beerbohm are my current passion. I really enjoyed this!

I have to say I love both! I am a big fan of symmetry but gallery walls really draw me in too...loved these examples, especially the one with that great camel colored sofa. Beautiful post!
