5 Hanging and Framed Art Trends to Try Now | Architectural Summary

Designer Shannon Claire Smith transformed a dated-looking mirror wall with a bit of carpentry and, of course, some artwork. “The wall was a floor-to-ceiling mirror – it almost felt like a workout studio or a club that someone thought was very groovy at the time,” Smith says of his former apartment in Washington, DC. In an effort to make the space look more sophisticated, Smith added panels directly to the mirror using construction adhesive. The adhesive also came in handy when it came time to install the artwork. “I couldn’t use a nail or anything that could break the mirror,” Smith says.

“I’ve always loved hanging artwork in unexpected places: in front of bookshelves, on doors, etc.,” says artist Josh Young in Washington, DC. When searching for a large vintage room divider, which sits next to her living room sofa, Young sought to break up the linear quality of the room. “I hung a simple, understated piece of artwork in front to help layer and add a point of interest to the overall vignette,” says Young. All he needed for that was wire and hooks. “It’s unexpected, which grabs your attention, but it’s intentional at the same time, which I love,” Young says.
