4 Art Ideas for Modern Dining Rooms

These are spaces meant to entertain and be eye catching, so adding some attention grabbing artwork to this space is important.

Abstract Gallery Wall

If you have a larger empty wall, adding a gallery wall is a great choice. You can either keep the prints in a consistent colour palette or with matching black frames to keep it modern. Bold black and white prints in a thin black wood frame is sure to be eye catching.

Art Pairs

If you have a medium sized space on your wall, a set of prints is perfect. Vintage print sets such as Matisse or Van Gogh prints have become a trendy option in dining rooms. These prints are great either on the wall or on a console, and can really bring out colours in your space.

Bold Modern Art

For a conversation starter, modern art is amazing. For a fun modern take on traditional painting in dining rooms, add a vintage painting with a modern saying written across it.

Large Modern Landscape

Abstract landscapes are hugely popular right now, these contemporary pieces are a fun spin on traditional landscapes in dining rooms. For bonus points, try to match the colours in your art to elements in your dining room such as napkins or a centrepiece.

5 Ways to Style Oversized Artwork

Leaning Gallery Wall

If you’re someone that rents and can’t make holes in your walls, or simply want to create a fun conversation starter, try leaning large artworks against the wall instead of hanging them. Create a gallery wall by staggering the sizes and layer them on top of each other.

Hallway

Boring white hallways seem cold and uninviting, adding a large warm artwork will welcome your friends and family. I would recommend a soothing pair of abstracts or landscape for your hallway.

Dining Room

Dining rooms are a space in your house that are meant to be dramatic. Create a focal point for your guests with a framed oversized artwork. Centre your artwork with the dining table to create a balanced room.

Console

A popular trend in interior design has been to style artwork on top of consoles. They’re often styled with stacks of books or sculptures beside them.

Living Room Wall

People will often hang several pieces of artwork above their couch that are too small and make the space seem disproportionate. Instead, hang a pair of oversized prints that will lead your eyes upward and make your space seem larger.

4 Ways to Style Art Pairs

On a Console

It’s become very trendy to style art pairs on consoles beside stacks of books or a decorative bowl. Layer your prints, overlapping them, instead of placing them side by side for a more modern style.

In A Hallway

Hallways are a great opportunity to style art pairs in a gallery wall, or over a front hallway piece of furniture. Create a space that welcomes your guest with a pair of soothing landscapes or abstracts.

Over A Bed

The space over a bed can seem too large for a single print, making the space feel empty, it’s always a great idea to instead opt for a pair of art prints. As a general rule, try to keep your art 2/3 the size of the furniture you’re hanging it above.  Try to match the artwork to your bedspread of tone of the furniture to create a cohesive room.

Over a Couch

Similar to the space over a bed, the area above a couch tends to be styled with a single artwork that is too small compared to the couch. Match the art pairs or frames to the furniture or small elements in the room such as a throw blanket, chair or wood.
