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 How High Should I hang My Art?

When hanging framed art prints, you might wonder how high up you should be hanging them? Consider these two things before making any holes in your walls:

Furniture

An easy guideline for hanging art is sticking to around eye level, or about 57-63 inches off the ground. This may vary if your furniture is much taller or shorter and the distance seems odd. If that's the case, hang the framed art print around 4-8 inches above it. One of the most common beginner interior design mistakes is hanging art too far up away from the furniture.

Eye Line

Think about the space in terms of usage. For example, in a living room, you will be sitting more than standing, which can change your eye line. It might be a good idea to hang a piece lower around some furniture so that you're not craning your neck to look at it. Hanging art lower can also provide interesting vignettes in a space.

Wall Prints I 3 Ways to Modernize Traditional Art

Frame

Instantly transform any dated or vintage style artwork with a thin modern wood frame. Black or white for a minimalist or contemporary space, or a thin neutral wood frame for a more Scandinavian or bohemian inspired interior. Ditch the mat and your piece is ready to hang, completely transformed. 

Location

Interior designers have started placing art in other creative locations around the house. Instead of simply hanging a single large piece over a bed, hang your art in a modern gallery wall, or place on a sleek console table.

Decor

Context is key, placing a more traditional piece in a modern space will make the piece stand out. These pieces really pop on modern white or cream walls. Add some small decor pieces around the space in similar colours such as candles, bowls, vases or throw pillows and blankets, pulling the space together.

Wall Prints I 6 Modern Bathroom Art Ideas

Abstract Line Art

If you're creating a more minimalist bathroom, a simple line art piece is perfect. This will add some visual interest, but won't be too strong on a white wall.

Pale Photography

Coastal photography is nice for a more transitional bathroom. Add some bath towels in the same colours as the art, to make the space feel cohesive.

Small Landscape

A massive trend at the moment is small framed landscapes on walls, or styled on furniture. These look amazing in the sage green bathrooms. Match the frame colour to other elements in the room for a polished look.

Art Pair/Set

Hang a simple pair of artworks on the wall, or frame a smaller set and place on a shelf above the toilet. Frame with a thin wood frame to stick to that modern art feeling.

Botanical

If your bathroom is a bit more playful, add a framed modern botanical print and hang some plants around it.

Neutral Painting

Organic colours and textures are very in. Hang a larger neutral abstract to stick to that earth toned aesthetic, but add a more contemporary feeling to the bathroom.

Wall Prints I 3 Texture Based Art Ideas

If your home leans towards a modern or minimalist style, you might be looking to add some visual interest to your space with art, but don't want it to clash with the white a neutral decor. Here are a few art ideas, perfect for those spaces:

Painted Abstract

This simple classic art is perfect for contemporary living rooms or entryways.  Stick to a neutral colour palette and frame with a natural wood frame for that Scandinavian touch, or with a thin black wood frame for a more more look.

Textile Print

There has been a trend in art recently of both framed textiles and textile prints. This is as simple as framing an actual rug, or adding a print with a textile style texture on top of it. For example a framed shape based abstract print with a linen texture looks amazing in a modern home office.

Scribble Art

If you're looking for a really minimalist look, scribble art is a fun way to add some visual texture. These prints are amazing framed smaller on a shelf, or oversized hung above a console table.

Wall Prints I 4 Places to Style Modern Landscapes

Home Office

Office spaces can often feel cold and boring, fill up that blank wall with an oversized abstract landscape. Try using a painting that has similar tones to the wood in your desk, for example if your desk is a lighter more bleached wood, the landscape could be a brighter coastal with blues and creams.

Over A Bed

Bedrooms should be calming spaces, and adding a framed landscape print is a great choice. Center a larger framed landscape above the bed, or hang a smaller modern abstracts over each end table to create balance.

Hallway

Hang a framed modern landscape over a bench or console table in a front hallway to create a warm welcoming setting for guests. Similar to the office, try to match colours in the frame to the furniture in the hallway. 

Contemporary Living Rooms

If you're looking for a modern spin on a classic living room, hang a more abstract landscape in your living room. Frame with a modern black wood frame and keep the furniture and decor simple and sleek so that the space feels more contemporary.

Gallery Wall

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 | 5 Reasons Artwork Makes A Room

Focal Point

Bold artwork can instantly transform any space creating a focal point that will immediately draw the eye. Show off your personal style with a vintage matisse print or a colourful modern abstract.

Ties in Colour

Art is the perfect place to draw a colour palette from. To create a cohesive space, match some elements around the room to the colours in your print or frame, such as pillows, small decor elements or even the couch colour.

Texture

Whether your art is physically textural (for example thick paint) or visually textured (think small patterns making the piece seem to have a texture) adding wall art to a space will give your room dimension. This is crucial for modern or minimalist spaces with all clean lines and simple furniture, the space will seem flat and uninteresting without art.

Space

Adding framed artwork to a room can affect how large the space feels. Similar to the trick of hanging your curtains higher up, adding large art prints higher on your walls will draw your eyes up, making the space feel larger.

Finished Look

Art is the final element in a room that makes the design feel finished. Without framed wall art the space will seem empty and unfinished.
