Given the simplicity of the silhouette (or shade) as an artform, they work remarkably well within the home and when hung in groups they can make a striking display. They can be arranged by shape, by size, by frame colour, by subject, by period . . .
Silhouettes work particularly well in small spaces such as over a doorway –
or parallel with a door frame –
or a mantelpiece –
They also look stunning grouped en masse on a larger wall space –
or on a staircase –
They work equally well in a modern setting or in a classical interior –
And they can be grouped around other objects –
All that’s needed is imagination and some picture hooks. Plus a collection of silhouettes, of course!
