Have a blank wall in your home or office you just don’t know what to do with? Been there done that! Here we have some tips for choosing and hang art in your personal spaces a little bit easier. Keep in mind that guidelines are just that – a guide. And there is no wrong or right as to what type of art you display. At the end of the day what looks and feels good to you is what is most important. So next time you want to bring some character into your home, here are some tips to help you choose and style them.
1. Group Art Pieces with a Common Theme
Not sure where to start? Try choosing a few coordinating colors that you like and find some art pieces that you like with those colors in common. You don’t need to stick with paintings or canvases either. You can also choose to display photographs, word art, pop art or vintage pieces like old posters or signs that catch your eye.
2. Make Sure Your Art Is Authentically You
This one isn’t as complicated as it sounds. Simply choose pieces that display something you want to convey or have a love for. Maybe you deeply believe in something or maybe you’re a superfan of something. Do you have a quirky sense of humour or love fashion and the latest trends? Choose pieces and art styles that resonate with you. Find art that you’re authentically drawn to and that makes you feel good. Never choose art or art styles because they’re popular or trending on Pinterest/ social media. The more “you” they are the more you’ll enjoy them.
3. Create A Vibe
Consider the use of the room or space you want to dress up. Do you want your space to evoke a certain feeling? If you want to add a sense of calm to your bedroom look to images or art pieces that have that effect on you naturally. Maybe you want to inject an uplifting energetic vibe to your office? Then look to pieces that inspire or motivate you. Whatever you choose make sure it makes you feel good in your home or space.
4. Go For Colour
Do you tend to go for neutrals or black and white? Try going out of your comfort zone and choosing at least one piece of art with a punch of colour. At Lovey Prints you can request any colour/ style you like!
5. Try A Gallery Wall And Play With Arrangement
A gallery wall can add a big impact to your space. Do you want a tight geometric arrangement that can give your space an organized and pulled together feeling or one that is more free-flowing and organic? Browse Pinterest to see different examples of gallery walls to decide which type would best suit your space. You can also experiment on your own by arranging your art pieces on the floor to see how you’d like them to appear on the wall. To make transferring your gallery wall display to your wall an easy task, trace the frame of each piece with paper and stick to the wall with tape. Once everything is arranged and looks good you can easily hang your pictures with ease.
6. Be Playful And Add A Little Humour
Art doesn’t have to be so serious! Find pieces that make you laugh or even uplift your mood. Word art works perfectly for this as does cheeky fun photography.
