3 Ways to Bring A Spring Vibe Into Your Space

Fresh Cut Leaves/Flowers

Now this one may be obvious, but having fresh cut leaves or flowers can really make a space feel so much more seasonal. I recommend either buying a potted plant (daffodils and hyacinths) or grabbing some wildflowers from outside if you’re looking for a more sustainable and budget-friendly option. In terms of decorating, I suggest either placing the plants on your table, counter or in your bedroom, just put them somewhere you will be able to see and enjoy them often.

Art

In terms of spring themed art, I recommend Matisse posters or prints, you could also go with fun floral themed wall art. Stick to brighter pastels to bring some spring to your walls. For frames, stick to lighter options such as maple or white for a more seasonal look. Switching your gallery wall or wall art with the seasons is an incredibly easy way to add some colour and design to your space.

Linens

It’s time to put away those thick darker drapes and sheets and switch to whites or creams. For an even lighter room, switch out the curtains to a thinner cotton or linen instead of heavy dark colours. It’s amazing how much more light will enter the space, the lighter colour palette will also make the space seem bigger and cleaner.

3 Types of Cottagecore Art

You may be asking yourself what cottagecore is, well it’s an aesthetic based on slow/rural living in the countryside. Imagine a country cottage in England with a huge garden. There has been a huge boom in popularity with the younger generations in regards to this style, so I figured I would give you some tips to decorate your walls with this popular style. I see a lot of information online about clothing and general design ideas for this style, but not a lot of art print specific information, so here it goes:

Landscape

You can’t have cottagecore artwork without bringing up landscapes. The foundation of this aesthetic is rural life. I would recommend a more muted vintage style palette, stick with fields, and forests. I also recommend using a painting or print instead of a photograph, since there is a strong vintage look to this design style. These are a great option in terms of art for kitchens or living rooms.

Floral

Another easy way to add some cottagecore art to your room is florals. I see a lot of posters or simple floral prints in this interior design style. Vintage botanical posters, as well as simple floral paintings would also work perfectly in a cottagecore space. I recommend sticking to either gold vintage style frames or simple black frames for a slightly more modern take on this aesthetic.

Fantastical

This style is heavily influenced by the fantastical (think fairies), so having a fantasy themed poster or print would fit right in. You don’t have to add mushrooms and witches to make the art fantastical though, try to add a Desiree Feldmann art piece for a more modern take on a floral fantasy.

3 Types of Figurative Art

Line

Line art is incredibly popular right now. You can either find incredible, clean looking digital pieces, or beautiful hand inked artworks to suit your space. Line art figures are a simple way to add a piece of artwork to your space, but have it stay subtle artwork for the background of your room. I would recommend these pieces if your room is busier (maximalists), that way it doesn’t overwhelm the eye.

Shape

These shape based pieces of figure art are everywhere in interior design at the moment. These pieces are solid and often colourful, so if you want a splash of colour and a modern piece of artwork, these could definitely work for you. Shape based figure art is becoming popular in Scandinavian and Minimalist spaces alike.

Abstract

Abstract figure art is a great option for rooms that are more modern and minimalist. These piece are usually bold and eye catching, perfect for a statement wall. These pieces tend to be abstracts with figures that are more hidden within the piece, less focused on the figure, but more the overall abstract shapes.

4 Frame Options for Modern Art

Feri and Joon offers four distinct frame options to suit any space, made with sustainably sourced Canadian wood.

Maple

Whether you’re wanting to add a bohemian or Scandinavian style print, maple frames are hugely popular. These paler woods are perfect for more neutral or paler spaces. I would recommend this frame to anyone looking for a lighter wood option.

Black

Black wood frames are a classic. These sleek and modern frames fit perfectly into a minimalist or contemporary room. Black frames are not likely to go out of style anytime soon. If you’re looking for a dramatic frame to add to a white wall, go for black.

White

A slightly different option for modern and minimalists alike. White wood frames are a clean, polished looking frame choice. If you have white or coloured walls, but don’t want a dramatic frame, go for a white frame.

Grey

Our grey frame is a darker natural look for your art print. If you’re more of a traditionalist with darker wood furniture, I would go for this option. Our grey frame suits traditional and woodsier spaces. This frame also suits a Scandinavian style interior perfectly. 

 

5 Styles of Art that Will Always Be In Fashion

Photography

This art style is a great way to include a modern piece in your space, but keep it classic. Photography is also great for minimalists not looking for the painted look. Photography is a pretty broad category, ranging from macro to wide lens, you can find a piece that will suit any space.

Landscapes

There has been a rise in modern abstract landscapes in interior design. If you’re hunting for a more traditional look, a simple painted piece is great for a large wall. Landscapes are perfect for over the couch or fireplace.

Abstracts

You can either go for a dramatic pop of colour, or stick to a more subdued neutral palette. These pieces are the perfect accompaniment to a modern or minimalist space. I recommend going for a bigger piece instead of a small abstract, so it can create more texture and visual interest in a room.

Florals

Florals are another type of art that has been recently branching into a more modern interior design style. There are artists painting abstract florals that are great for a feminine element. These dramatic colour palettes are great if you’re looking for an eye catching piece.

Collage

No, I’m not talking about that cut up newspaper type of collage, but a modern take on this style. With photoshop and digital art programs now becoming so accessible, artists are creating beautiful digital collages that are bold and fresh. These pieces are great conversation starters, I would keep the sizing small to medium as these pieces tend to be visually quite busy.

5 Creative Places to Put Your Art

Living Room Console

If you’re someone that has trouble styling your console, try adding a medium sized print to it. This is a great way to either add, colour, pattern or a focal point to your console. Just make sure to balance it out by adding some other tall elements such as candles or dried plants.

Kitchen

A room in your house that is often neglected in terms of artwork. Kitchens are a great opportunity to add some playful art to be a conversation opener for guests. When hosting, people will often migrate into your kitchen and having a bold piece of art on the wall can really spark an interesting conversation.

Bedside Table

Instead of just having your phone, clock and a glass of water, why not add a small piece of art? Your bedside table is often the first thing you see in the morning, so I recommend adding a soothing print to start your day in a calm and happy mood. Try to stick to a neutral or blue colour palette to create that relaxing feeling.

Bathroom

Another room that tends to be forgotten in terms of artwork. Bathroom art pieces are usually soft and subtle. Stay far away from the tacky word art bathroom jokes and try to go for a modern abstract or interesting photography piece. Another great option is soft floral pieces (either monochromatic or watercolour). No matter what are you choose, please reader, for me, do not add a toilet themed cartoon print - no one wants to look at those.

Over the Mantel

All that brick or wood over your mantel can seem a bit boring, so try to add a large piece of artwork. I recommend a colour palette that either blends well with the fireplace, or go for a pop of colour that contrasts nicely. The most common over the mantel art I have seen are landscapes and abstracts as they're a nice neutral choice.
