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.

Wall Prints | 3 Art Styles for a Scandinavian Bedroom

Line Art Figure 

Most Scandinavian design focuses on simple and clean lines. One line drawings or line art figures are a great option since they're minimal and suit the Scandinavian design style. Frame these modern prints in either a thin natural wood finish or black frame.

Neutral Abstract

Another key feature of the Scandinavian design aesthetic is a neutral palette. Stick to neutrals such as tans, creams, greys and whites with natural wood accents. Abstracts in monochrome or subtle colour palettes are a perfect addition to any Scandinavian style bedroom.

Modern Vintage Print

Matisse and vintage botanicals have really come back into fashion. With the rise in popularity of these prints, modern spins on these classic pieces have become trendy. With modern frames and colour palettes, they're simple prints that suit Scandinavian bedrooms perfectly.

Wall Prints | 3 Types of Figurative Art

Line

Line art is incredibly popular right now. You can either find incredible, clean looking digital pieces, or beautiful hand inked artworks to suit your space. Line art figures are a simple way to add a piece of artwork to your space, but have it stay subtle artwork for the background of your room. I would recommend these pieces if your room is busier (maximalists), that way it doesn’t overwhelm the eye.

Shape

These shape based pieces of figure art are everywhere in interior design at the moment. These pieces are solid and often colourful, so if you want a splash of colour and a modern piece of artwork, these could definitely work for you. Shape based figure art is becoming popular in Scandinavian and Minimalist spaces alike.

Abstract

Abstract figure art is a great option for rooms that are more modern and minimalist. These piece are usually bold and eye catching, perfect for a statement wall. These pieces tend to be abstracts with figures that are more hidden within the piece, less focused on the figure, but more the overall abstract shapes.
