Wall Prints I 5 Unexpected Places To Style Art

Nightstand

Bedrooms are meant to be calm happy places. Adding some art to your bedroom is always a great choice to add a personal touch. Style a small framed art print with a little trinket dish on your nightstand to create some visual interest.

Bookshelf

You can either place several prints on top of the shelf in different sizes, or style a small print on one of the shelves. This adds a fun eclectic pop of colour to a more muted shelf.

Chair

We all have those random chairs lying around. Sit a framed artwork on it and place it in an unused corner. This is great option if your home has some dead space in awkward corners too low for larger furniture.

Radiator

Older building often have broken and unused radiators. Put a medium sized framed print on top of it, and place larger and smaller framed artworks on the ground to create an unexpected gallery.
Coffee Table
Not sure how to style your coffee table? Try adding a small art print and other decor items in a similar colour palette. For example, bowls, candle sticks and books in a warmer tone.

Poster Gallery Wall

Instead of making holes in the wall, either use command strips to hang lighter framed art prints, or stick unframed art prints to your wall. Gallery walls look amazing over a bed, couch or across a hallway wall.

Art Shelf

If you only want to make a couple of holes, consider hanging an art shelf. These sturdy shelves are made to hold several pieces of art and a couple of smaller home decor items such as candle sticks, books or small bowls. Stagger the sizes, and add perhaps layer three or five pieces of art on the shelf (try to work in odd numbers as they look best).

Floor Gallery

If your landlord is a little more strict, creating a floor gallery is a fun design opportunity. Place different sized art prints on the floor, or a small bench/box to create some height variation. These galleries look amazing in subtle neutrals for a more Scandinavian look, or with bold colours to create a focal point in your space.
