So here is the couch wall - the small pictures are still going to get reframed because it bugs me that they are so beat up and the mats don't match. They will also be thicker, square frames and take up slightly more space. But the picture in the middle is awesome and the overall effect is much more balanced. And yes, that is how dim my house is naturally.
Although I really like the relationship between the three pictures since they are all similar sizes but not the same, I think I may have to move them all down an inch or two overall just because they look SO high to me. Thoughts?
