The St. Petersburg hanging, whose name goes back to the lavishly hung walls of the St. Petersburg Hermitage, refers to a particularly close arrangement of picture frames.
These often reach up to the ceiling and the picture frames hang very close together. The St Petersburg hanging, (also called salon hanging) looks simple, but a lot of planning goes into such a design.
It is important to maintain the "organised chaos" when hanging picture and photo frames in the St. Petersburg style. We recommend a distance of between 4 and 10 cm between each photo frame within a picture wall.
