Wall Prints I 3 Renter Friendly Art Ideas

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.

Wall Prints I 5 Tips For Styling Art on Shelves

Subject Matter

Consider your space, is your office or living room minimalist and modern, or in a more transitional design style? If it's more traditional, go for a classical print or maybe a small more landscape. If your space is modern, perhaps opt for an abstract or bold colourful line art piece.

Colour Palette

Do you want this piece to be the focal point of your shelf, or is it meant to be more subtle and blend into the shelf? Neutral pieces are always a safe bet to style on a shelf, but consider playing around with a fun pop of colour.

Size

If the art piece is being styled on a shelf, keep it smaller, perhaps an 8x10 or a 10x13 framed art print. These look great on modern shelves and won't look out of place or too big.

Frame

The frame should be a simple frame, a neutral wood or black frame is a perfect choice to style on a shelf. These simple thinner wood framed art prints are a classic style.

Accessories

Lastly, how do you style the shelf around your new art piece? Remebr to stagger the heights of the objects on the shelf. Add a few taller objects such as candle sticks, vases or books, and some smaller pieces like wooden bowls or small pottery.

Wall Prints | 4 Tips For Matching Art Prints

Colour

An easy way to style artworks is to choose a colour palette. It can be as simple as a group of neutrals, or you can take one specific colour from a piece.

Frame

If you want a gallery wall or shelf of prints to seem cohesive, matching their frames is an easy solution. This will make prints that are vastly different seem intentionally styled together.

Size

For an easy modern gallery wall, use artworks all the same size and line them up on your wall. This look is perfect for a hallway or stairwell.

Subject Matter

You can create a harmonious wall with all different prints if the subject matter is the same. For example a wall of modern abstracts or framed photography. Styling these prints together will look much more intentional.

Wall Prints | 5 Reasons Artwork Makes A Room

Focal Point

Bold artwork can instantly transform any space creating a focal point that will immediately draw the eye. Show off your personal style with a vintage matisse print or a colourful modern abstract.

Ties in Colour

Art is the perfect place to draw a colour palette from. To create a cohesive space, match some elements around the room to the colours in your print or frame, such as pillows, small decor elements or even the couch colour.

Texture

Whether your art is physically textural (for example thick paint) or visually textured (think small patterns making the piece seem to have a texture) adding wall art to a space will give your room dimension. This is crucial for modern or minimalist spaces with all clean lines and simple furniture, the space will seem flat and uninteresting without art.

Space

Adding framed artwork to a room can affect how large the space feels. Similar to the trick of hanging your curtains higher up, adding large art prints higher on your walls will draw your eyes up, making the space feel larger.

Finished Look

Art is the final element in a room that makes the design feel finished. Without framed wall art the space will seem empty and unfinished.

Wall Prints | 4 Tips for Gifting Artwork

Their Artwork

Consider the art they already own, is it all minimalist abstracts, or is it fun funky vintage posters? When you visit them next, take a quick peak at what they already own and try to buy artwork in a similar art style.

Frames

If their home is a modern or minimalist style, use a simple thin black frame, but if their space is more boho or neutral, go for a grey or maple frame.

Colour Palette

Matching artwork to specific colours in their space is a great way to make sure it looks amazing in their home. Try isolating either colours of their furniture, rug or small decor elements and buying art in that colour palette.

Subject Matter

If you notice they already own a lot of photography or line art, why not add to their collection? Looking at the art they already have hanging is the easiest way to make sure the art print you’re gifting them will match.
