Cute collection, I especially love the lamp. Have to add these two bunny prints by the artist Pascale Bonenfant: Le thé and Hop !, they're two of our most popular prints!

Good timing! I'm planning an exhibition with pieces hung from the ceiling (visible from both sides), so I was looking for something just like this. Very helpful to have the instructions and sources, I feel less nervous now about pulling this all together.

Beautiful examples. This remind me of my grandparents' photo wall - they have a collection of annual family photos (going back over 50 years), each 24x36 inches, b&w, with black frames. They haven't hung photos from every year, just the best ones, but they must have at least 25 photos displayed this way in a grid format. The presentation is stunning, I love that they've managed to display family photos in a manner that rivals an art collection.

Good point! Sticky tack definitely has a lifespan, it's not a perfect solution.

I've worked as a curator for art galleries in the past and now own an online gallery (Sur ton mur - so I don't have to hang art anymore!).

One of my favorite tips to keep artwork straight (crooked frames drive me crazy) is to use sticky tack to anchor the piece. Before hanging it, place tiny balls of sticky tack on the back of the piece, at the two bottom corners. Using a level to make sure it's perfectly straight, press the bottom corners against the wall until they're anchored by the sticky tack. Not all pieces need this, but if you do this when you hang the artwork, you'll avoid having to repeatedly straighten it later on (and if the frame is on the cheap side, it may have problems hanging straight from day one). Sticky tack to the rescue!

Love this post. I've spent a significant amount of time pondering this question - I run a shop selling art prints for kids (Sur ton mur), and have had lots of discussions with parents about when and why to buy art for kids' bedrooms. In the end I think it's important that 1) Your kid really falls in love with the item (so that it's something that brings them pleasure on a regular basis over a long period of time) and 2) It's something that can transition with them as they grow (i.e. can continue to be beautiful or useful to them at many stages of life).

My grandfather had a fragile Peter Rabbit plate that he ate from as a kid, and it really brought him joy to continue to use it for his morning toast at 90 years old. Having a few well-designed, high-quality items like the bunny lamp can teach kids the benefits of creating a home environment that you love - with beauty, comfort, and inspiration.
