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 | 5 Types of Artwork for a Guest Room

Landscapes

A spare bedroom should be a soothing comfortable space for any visitor. Having a beautiful abstract landscape painting is a great place to start. Keep the colour palette blues or neutrals for a calming effect. Coastal paintings are a perfect easy option for a spare room.

Photography

Another option is black and white photography. If your looking to design a more modern or minimalist room, add a dramatic framed black and white photograph. To keep the photography from visually weighing down your wall, try to keep the rest of the furnishings white, and maybe have some pops of grey or black accessories to match.

Floral

These framed pieces don’t have to look like your grandmother chose them for you. Add a modern abstract or line art floral to your space for a spin on a traditional guest bedroom artwork. Since these pieces tend to be detailed, stick to a simple clean frame so that the focus stays on the artwork.

Still Life

Modern still lives are incredible trendy right now in interior design. These elegant pieces usually feature a pot or vase and or some fruit. Line art or simple shapes take these old fashioned concepts into 21st century homes. I recommend buying a set, and placing them above either the bed or a side console in the room.

Neutral Abstracts

For those of you with a more Scandinavian inspired home, use a simple framed neutral abstract for your spare room. To create a peaceful Nordic space, use a thin black or neutral frame and keep the furnishings simple. Add some textured blankets and pillows on the bed to get that hygge feeling.

Wall Prints | 3 Neutral Art Trends

Abstracts

These solid pieces can be a great neutral choice. They complement your decor and won’t be too eye catching. These pieces are perfect if your room already has a statement piece such as a table or couch. They’re often shape based with simple flat, warmed toned shapes and some subtle texture. Neutral abstract prints can tie a room together with pops of white of black that will complement the other decor.

Landscapes

If you want a more modern take on a traditional artwork, this is the way to go. These beautiful pieces are a perfect option above a couch or mantel. Neutral abstract coastal prints are incredibly popular right now for a reason, they’re really easy to style in modern homes. I recommend sticking to either a black or brown frame to complement these designs.

Line Art

Framed line art prints are perfect for any modern or Scandinavian space. These subtle pieces enhance a neutral room without being too overpowering visually. I recommend sticking to a simple piece with a brown or beige background with white or black lines. A white or black frame will enhance the simplicity of these works.

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”.

Complete Guide to Line Art

Wow, reader you’re looking great! That new sweater really agrees with you. Oh, you want to know about line art? Well friend, look no further. Line art is exactly how it sounds, art based on line work rather than form. The most popular line art styles are comprised of one-line drawings, abstract lines, and inked drawings. Line art and drawings have been around for thousands of years, and it’s no wonder, ink and line art is simple and timeless.

Line art in a modern space

Having a clean modern space is the perfect vibe for line art. Now that minimalism is taking over, white, black and neutral spaces are on the rise. To keep your art in a minimal and clean style, I would recommend decorating with either a classic one-line drawing or using a modern line abstract. These simple pieces of artwork can really elevate your space.

Line art in a tradition space

If your space is a little more traditional, you can still make line drawings work. I would suggest moving away from the abstracts and stick to inked art. This can be anything from a pen and ink to a line art portrait. It will give your space some much needed class, but not look stark and foreign with the rest of your decor and furniture. For a less minimalistic look, you can also use line art with a neutral or coloured background.
