It’s really fun and enjoyable to pick out art pieces for our homes. But once you have your favourite art work, how do you display it at home? Framing it up is a good way to do so, but there are actually many ways to arrange a good piece of art to blend in with your interior style. Here are some ideas to easily display your art pieces in stylish ways.
1 Make your art piece a part of your living room’s overall style. In this example, the black and white print beautifully complements the sofa setting. Art can even be in the form of pillows like the singular colourful piece on the sofa, which creates an immediate focal point.
2 Affix open shelves on the walls to display your art. Placing it next to a mirror also adds depth and gives your wall a focal element.
3 You can also use your favourite prints to enliven empty corners in the house by creating a collection of displays on top of a console.
4 You don’t need to frame up prints all the time. Polariod shots or printed photos in their original non-framed state make great art displays at home as well.
5 If you are framing a different set of paintings or prints, use similar frames. If your paintings are similar in style and tone, you can use different frames to create visual interest.
6 You can also create symmetry by grouping prints and frames of the same style and colour palette.
7 An art piece makes a great decorative feature for your dining room walls. Choose something that brings out your table setting.
8 For a more casual look in the dining space, mix up your framed art pieces. In fact, let it hang randomly on the wall – you don’t have to keep the frames straight and stiff all the time.
9 However, if you prefer a more formal look, arrange your frames in a straight and linear fashion. You can break the monotony by introducing a circular frame.
10 For bedrooms, an art piece over the headboard is always an easy yet effective way to enhance the appeal of the room.
11 For something a little different, you can try layered groupings of framed art.
12 In lieu of actual paintings or prints, how about maps on the wall?
13 Use art to introduce colours to your living spaces.
14 For a touch of eclectic and exotic appearance, choose art work that have an antiquated and handcrafted treatment. We have more tips here on how to make your living spaces stand out with unique decorating elements.
