Ink Brush Still Life

There has been a real uprising in ink brush style art, making it a great choice for a modern living room. These pieces look perfect with a thin black wood frame hung over a console table or in a modern gallery wall.

Art Shelf

This is a great solution for if you have a few prints in different sizes, but don't want to hang a traditional gallery wall. Style this shelf with several framed prints in different sizes along with some smaller decor elements such as candle sticks, books or a small vase.

Oversized Landscape

Modern abstract landscapes are an elegant spin on traditional art found in living rooms. Hang a large or oversized landscape above your couch, filling up that big empty space. Add some throw pillows onto the couch with colours from the framed landscape to bring the space together.

Neutral Abstract

For a more minimal addition to your space, add a neutral abstract. Frame this piece with a neutral, black or white wood frame for that classic modern flare.

Large Abstract

If you looking to create a modern or minimalist style bedroom, a single large framed abstract is a perfect choice. Frame with a simple thin black or white wood frame to compliment the contemporary style.

Gallery Wall

When creating a gallery wall, make sure to hang an odd number of prints as they tend to look the best. Try to stagger the print sizes, with a few smaller prints, a couple medium and maybe one large piece.

Print Set

For a simple classic art look, hang a set of two medium sized framed prints over your bed. For a modern style, hang several photography, line art or shape based abstracts.

Landscape

A great modern spin on traditional bedroom art is an abstract landscape. These neutral artworks are a calm addition to any bedroom.

Art Shelf

If you have a set of framed prints that are odd sizes, use an art shelf to display these prints. Add some smaller decor items such as candles or a small potted plant to the shelf to create a fun modern wall art focal point.

Wall Prints I 3 Tips For Styling Small Art Prints

Shelf

Small artworks can make a wall feel incredibly empty. They tend to draw the eye and seem out of proportion with the space. Instead of hanging a single small art print on the wall, style it on an art shelf.

Accessories

Beside your small art print on your shelf, consider adding some accessories. This could be anything from candle sticks, to books and potted plants. Try to vary the height of these objects so that the shelf looks visually balanced. For example, place one smaller decor piece, and one larger one beside a the artwork. It's best to decorate in uneven numbers, so consider adding three or five small accessories.

Sets/Gallery Wall

If you're set on hanging the small art print, try to hang it in a set or gallery wall. This way the piece is more proportionate to the space.

Photography

For a simple and easy gallery wall, go for 3-7 photography pieces. Try to keep it an odd number of framed art prints as those look best grouped together. You can choose nature, architectural or a travel photography for an instagram ready space.

Abstracts

For a modern choice, a gallery wall of abstract prints looks amazing over a couch. These can be colourful for an eye catching feature wall or more neutral if you want to achieve that minimalist or Scandinavian style.

Vintage Eclectic 

Grandmillenial is a style that is starting to take over. As millennials inherit their family's furniture and decor, vintage pieces are coming back into vogue. Take some of granny's old prints and mix in some new more classics like matisse or van gogh for a cool eclectic gallery wall.

Monochromatic

For all of you minimalist lovers, a monochromatic wall is a super easy choice. Stick to one colour and create a framed gallery wall from it. For a sleek modern look, a black and white wall is great, but this also works with colour. Blues and sage green are very in, why not create a simple palette to find the prints for your wall?

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 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.

Landscapes

Inspirational Figures

Having artwork that inspires you is important. There are plenty of modern takes on inspirational figures with words and collage elements that will instantly transform your office space.

Photography

If you like your office simple and clean, photography is the right choice for you. Go for a big photography gallery wall to fill up that empty white space. Try to stick to matching frames for a minimalist approach, or go for a fun eclectic photography wall with mismatched frames and sizes.

Still Life

If like a more traditional vintage style office add a still life print. Still lives range from florals to vases and fruit, with more traditional styles like oils all the way to digital abstracts. To modernize a more old fashioned print, go for a thin black frame.

Wall Prints | 3 Autumnal Art Ideas

You don’t have to use cheesy pumpkin and harvest themed art in your home to bring some fall elements and colour into your space. Instead use warm and muted coloured art and frames.

Warm Abstract

For a modern spin on autumnal art, use abstracts with deep browns, oranges and yellows. These cozy colours will bring fall tones into the room. Use a simple brown or maple frame to complement these pieces. These prints look great hanging above or sitting on a console.

Neutral Landscape

Instead of bright oranges, neutral browns, creams and beiges can be a good choice for this time of year. Landscapes are a great investment since they can be left up through the year but will match your warm toned autumn decor perfectly. These suit living rooms and bedrooms and are great for large empty spaces above couches.

Vintage Print

Vintage art prints give off that classic fall look. They tend to use muted warm colours that make amazing fall decor. These can range from red and orange William Morris prints all the way to muted Matisse prints. Mix and match these prints to create an autumnal gallery wall.
