An eclectic mix of subject and style makes a space uniquely individual and projects the sensibilities and taste of the owner.  It's a balance of proportion, scale, spacing and colour combinations. Get it right and it looks great, transforming not only the space, but allowing the artwork to be seen in a new way.
