Wall Prints I 3 Fall Art Ideas

Autumn is all about warm colours. Switching your art seasonally is a great way to decorate if you're not someone that wants fall decorations everywhere. Here are a few great art options for the season:

Abstract

You don't have to just use a bright orange abstract for fall. Look at some of the warm brows, beiges and rust coloured abstracts. Style these framed artworks on a console table or hang as a set in a hallway. 

Landscape

Autumn toned landscapes are a great way to bring some warmth into a space. Go larger on these prints and hang oversized above a bed or couch for a cozy fall look. Match the frame colour to the bed frame for a designer style.

Wall Prints I 3 Ways to Modernize Traditional Art

Frame

Instantly transform any dated or vintage style artwork with a thin modern wood frame. Black or white for a minimalist or contemporary space, or a thin neutral wood frame for a more Scandinavian or bohemian inspired interior. Ditch the mat and your piece is ready to hang, completely transformed. 

Location

Interior designers have started placing art in other creative locations around the house. Instead of simply hanging a single large piece over a bed, hang your art in a modern gallery wall, or place on a sleek console table.

Decor

Context is key, placing a more traditional piece in a modern space will make the piece stand out. These pieces really pop on modern white or cream walls. Add some small decor pieces around the space in similar colours such as candles, bowls, vases or throw pillows and blankets, pulling the space together.

Wall Prints I 6 Modern Bathroom Art Ideas

Abstract Line Art

If you're creating a more minimalist bathroom, a simple line art piece is perfect. This will add some visual interest, but won't be too strong on a white wall.

Pale Photography

Coastal photography is nice for a more transitional bathroom. Add some bath towels in the same colours as the art, to make the space feel cohesive.

Small Landscape

A massive trend at the moment is small framed landscapes on walls, or styled on furniture. These look amazing in the sage green bathrooms. Match the frame colour to other elements in the room for a polished look.

Art Pair/Set

Hang a simple pair of artworks on the wall, or frame a smaller set and place on a shelf above the toilet. Frame with a thin wood frame to stick to that modern art feeling.

Botanical

If your bathroom is a bit more playful, add a framed modern botanical print and hang some plants around it.

Neutral Painting

Organic colours and textures are very in. Hang a larger neutral abstract to stick to that earth toned aesthetic, but add a more contemporary feeling to the bathroom.

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.
