How to style wall art for your living room

Knowing where to begin when selecting and styling wall art for your living room can be challenging. Follow our step-by-step guide to make the process easier. 

Select a Focal Point for your Wall Art 

Before you begin selecting artwork, it's important to get clear on what you're looking for. Whether you want a statement piece or a series of artworks, consider a single large print, an emotive triptych, or a gallery wall arrangement. 

Consider Scale and Proportion 

To create a balanced space, take into account the scale and proportion of your wall as well as the existing decor. A small print may be lost on a large wall, while an oversized piece can overwhelm a small space. 

Try to balance your final result with other elements in the room. If you have a large piece of art on one side of the room, balance it out with smaller pieces or decorative items on the opposite side. 

Coordinate Colors 

To ensure a balance of visual weight, choose artwork that complements your room's existing colour scheme. You can either match the colours in the artwork to the existing decor or use it as an opportunity to introduce new accent colours. 

Frame it Right:

Select frames that complement your existing decor and enhance the artwork. The frame style and colour should work well with both the artwork and the decor of the room. 

Personalise 

Choose artwork that reflects your style and interests. Whether it's expressive abstracts, show-stopping music prints, or motivational pieces, incorporating personal touches will make the space feel more authentic and inviting. 

Experiment and Have Fun 

Don't be afraid to get creative and try out different arrangements until you find the perfect combination. Styling wall art is a great opportunity to express your personality and make your living room truly unique.
