With a huge rise in trends of vintage art, you may be seeing all kinds of old art prints on influencers’ walls. If you’re looking to add a cool vintage touch to your space, but keep a more modern feeling and colour platte, here are some recommendations:
Botanical prints have been a popular choice of artwork for centuries. If you’re looking for a more traditional choice, choose a vintage botanical drawing or painting, but add a modern thin black frame to keep a more updated look. These pieces are great in sets or gallery walls.
Famous Art Prints and Posters
Whether you like colourful Matisse prints, or Van Gogh posters, these are a great way to bring a classic look to your walls. You can find either full painting posters, or posters of old exhibitions. These pieces are perfect with a simple wood frame in a larger size. They’re also a great addition to a vintage style gallery wall.
For these wall art pieces, I would go for either a large single piece or a small neutral piece for a gallery wall. If you’re looking for a more modern and minimalist style, use an abstract landscape such as a Dan Hobday piece. For landscapes, I recommend sticking to a more simple neutral colour palette, making them perfect for living rooms either over the couch or mantel.
Classical Inspired Prints
These are a great modern take on classical artwork. With modern colour palettes and interesting imagery, these fun and more playful pieces are a perfect way to add a vintage feeling. You can find interesting prints with classical paintings and sculptures that have been altered or edited to bring them into the 21st century such as Desirée Feldmann's work. I would recommend a medium sized print in a white or black wood frame to keep it simple since these prints tend to be detailed and colourful.
