4 Tips For Layering Art on Consoles

Cohesive Frames

When creating any sort of gallery wall or set, having matching frames is the easiest way to make the art match. For a modern take, use a thin black or white frame. For a more traditional or vintage look, frame your art prints with a maple or grey wood frame.

Colour Palette

Keeping a simple colour palette is important when styling prints. Try to stick to either a warm colour palette (yellows, oranges, red and browns) or a cool colour palette (blues, greens, purples and greys) for your artwork.

Theme

Another option for choosing art prints to style together is choosing a theme. This can be as broad as portraits or landscapes, or more specific like yellow florals. When styled together even if the prints’ frames and artists aren’t the same, the prints seem to belong together.

Matching Art Sets

For an easy and modern way to create a layered art look on a console, stick to a set of matching art prints. Some popular options for this look include vintage prints, abstracts and figures. Matisse and Van Gogh vintage sets have become a trendy option for minimalists, adding some colour and texture to a simple space.

3 Art Print Ideas for a Mid Century Modern Room

Line Art

These framed art pieces are a staple in mid-century modern decor. These pieces add some texture to a space with their repetitive lines. If you’re looking for a simple black and white piece, line art is a great option.

Shape Abstracts

These abstracts are perfect if you want to add some colour to your space, but don’t want a traditional painting. These playful framed modern artworks are a great option for a mid century modern room. These pieces can also be a great choice for a more subtle look if you choose a monochromatic or neutral colour piece.

Vintage Prints

If you want to add a touch of vintage to your mid century modern room, add a framed vintage art print. If you're looking for a cool gallery wall idea, mix vintage art prints, try to keep a similar colour palette to keep the wall cohesive.
