Lean In
"Not all art must hang on the wall," says Swift. You can achieve a looser look by leaning an artwork against a wall (whether it's on a table, mantel or even the floor). You'll want to cluster smaller pieces to keep them from looking haphazard, and secure them with museum wax, double-sided tape or a hook.
