Wall Prints I What Your Art Says About Your Home

Minimalist Line Art

If the framed art on your walls is shades of white with lots of one line drawings, you're into simple design. You like your space to feel bright and modern and keep the rooms super tidy. You probably have either purchased the cloud couch, or have found a dupe online.

Boho

If your art leans into the bohemian style, I bet your home is filled with houseplants and cozy rugs. Your art is framed with mismatched natural wood frames. You also have hung up rattan pieces like those trending rattan mirrors in your living room.

Modern Abstract

Depending of if it's colourful or neutral, your aesthetic is wildly different. Either way you drink too much coffee. If your home is filled with neutral framed abstracts, your whole house matches these art pieces. If you go for bright colourful shape abstracts, your place is more eclectic with interesting thrifted pieces alongside the modern furniture. 

Oversized Landscape

Your home is in the transitional style. You have for sure given into the colour sage trend and have classic taste. The modern landscapes are not just in one place, they're hung in several rooms in your home.

Wall Prints I 4 Ways to Mix Art and Textural Elements

Adding art to a shape with natural textures can be tricky. Keep these few tips in mind:

Colour

An easy way to match art to any space is creating a colour pallet. Keep the colours in the interior similar to the art to create a well designed and cohesive space. 

Shape

Another simple trick is to use shape based abstracts and mirror decor elements in the space to the art. For example placing a vase, bowl or other small object in a similar shape beside the art. 

Frame

Choose a natural wood frame to match a space with lots of organic elements. This will seem much less jarring than a bright white or modern black frame.

Style

Don't be afraid to mix art styles, so long as the colour or frame matches the room. Play around with more traditional and modern art styles in a boho or organic modern interior.

Wall Prints | 5 Gallery Wall Ideas

Art and Mirrors

If you’re into a more eclectic decor style, having a mix of framed art prints and mirrors in a gallery all is a great option. This look is perfect for a living room wall with lots of empty space and mismatched furniture. I recommend using vintage scrollwork framed mirrors to add some texture and visual interest.

Art all the same size

If your space is a little modern modern and minimalist, try going for a gallery wall of artwork in the same size. These simple and classic sets look great with a simple black or white frame and suit a hallway or stairwell.

Vintage art

For those of you who have vintage or maximalist spaces, I would recommend this option. For a more traditional room, use botanical prints, but for a more modern take, use framed vintage prints like a colourful Matisse work. Try to stagger the sizes but keep the artwork in a matching frame and or colour palette to keep the wall cohesive.

Framed art prints and posters

If you’ve spent any time on Pintrest lately, you have probably seen the gallery walls with mixed framed art and posters. These are a good option if you have a larger wall and need to fill in more space. Try to stagger the sizes of both the posters as well as your framed art prints. Since these gallery walls tend to be larger, practice the layout of your gallery wall on the floor before making holes in your walls to hang them up.

Art and plants

For any boho lover, mixing plants and art is a must. When mixing these, try to use air plants as they require little to no water, which will protect your artwork and walls. Another option is to use fake plants in pots with hooks to hang on the wall.

Wall Prints | 4 Tips For Choosing Art

Colour

When choosing a colour palette, try to either have the art match the colour palette of the space, or use a totally opposite colour scheme to make it pop. When choosing colour, consider if you would like your art print to draw the eye or blend in harmoniously. Trending colour palettes are neutrals, greys and pastels, but feel free to experiment and have fun with colour!

Size

People tend to choose art that is too small for a wall. If you’re just hanging one or two pieces say over a couch, make sure they’re large enough to fill the space, 24”x36” and up. For a gallery wall or a smaller space, I recommend using 8”x10” to around 20”x28”, with maybe one larger piece at 24"x36". Remember when you’re hanging a large piece of framed artwork on a plaster wall to either hang from a wall stud or use wall plugs so the weight can be supported properly.

Frame

Similar to colour, consider if you would like the frame to blend into the artwork, or be a bold accent. I usually choose simple wood frames for my pieces, but vintage frames with scrollwork are making a big comeback with the rise of interior design styles like dark academia. For a clean minimalist look, go for a simple black wood frame, and for a more boho or Scandinavian look, use a maple or grey frame.

Style

Artwork is very subjective, everyone likes different styles. I can however recommend if your room is modern to use styles like abstracts or line art to compliment your room. If your space is traditional, you may prefer landscapes or photography. Take some time to browse Pinterest with relevant keywords to find art styles you may enjoy, such as searching “modern bedroom” or “Scandinavian living room”.

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. 

 

3 Bohemian Art Trends

Botanicals 

One of the most popular art options for the boho style is plant based artwork. This ranges from simple botanical line art, to filtered photography all the way to shape based plant abstracts. These are the perfect pieces for the plant lover in your life. A key piece of the boho style is house plants, often ferns, palms, cactuses and large potted plants. Why not keep this theme reflected in the artwork?

Line Arches

These pieces are simple line art based around arches and half circles. These pieces are a more minimalist take on boho style, great for the boho spaces with less furnishings and decor. You don’t have to have seven thousand plants to still maintain an overall boho style to your space, just keep the colours warm and add a couple of rattan furnishings and you’re good to go.

Abstracts

These pieces are gaining popularity with warm toned neutral pieces for spaces. These pieces can really suit a space that’s overwhelmed with plants, macrame and rattan. Keeping the art neutral can be a great choice for maximalist spaces with more furnishings and decor pieces.
