Dramatic Dining: A Shelf of Paintings

While it may not be as dramatic as this art wall, I still admire the effect this shelf of paintings has on the dining room. Because they’re leaning against the wall (not hanging), the overall feel is a little relaxed, despite the relative formality and weight of the paintings. Varying sizes and styles also keep it interesting, and break up the monotony of the white wall. What do you think?
