Art Up your Wall. Tips for Choosing Wall Art

Whether it is something colourful or playful, monochromatic or meaningful, your room should never be deprived of art. Here are 9 tips on how to ‘art up’ your home.

1. Choose something you will enjoy looking at every day


When you buy art you have to be sure of what you are buying. Remember that when you wake up every morning your pictures, paintings of whatever you choose, should put you in a good mood.

2. Don’t be afraid to go Bold

When considering bold art, you should always remember that you want your art to be the main statement of the room. You want it to be gripping.

3. Don’t be shy, go Big


The most common mistake people make is that they choose art that is too small for the wall or for the room it’s being put in. Dare to go for something big! Give your guests the chance to be impressed!

4. Be unique, go Green


Let me introduce you to green walls. Green walls are a great way to hide an ugly wall, they are  great at improving air quality, they take up no floor space and they add great texture to the room. Now, if you tell me that wasn’t enough to convince you, I don’t know what to say. And, I forgot to mention, buying them is not as hard as it used to be. In fact you have the chance to buy them right here.

5. Don’t be afraid to simply go Neutral


The title is self explanatory and the image proves it. The room looks amazing and calming at the same time. I wish I were there.

6. Family Pictures? Go Monochromatic, go Black and White.


Hanging family pictures can be a really hard thing to do and the biggest problem people encounter is the picture messing up the room’s colour scheme. And I’ve got good news for you! The solution is right there and it is choosing black and white pictures. By doing this no neon shirt, too green pants or bright red socks showing up in pictures can ever destroy your colour scheme again.

7. Go for something that tells a story.


OK, so, just you know. I find this AMAZING! The creative Christian Jackson does this kind of clever art.

8. Don’t be afraid to group images


Grouping images is actually a very interesting thing. Everybody is so scared to do it because they think it is boring or unattractive, when actually, it is very visually pleasing. Go ahead and do it yourself to achieve this unique and clean look. Click on these posters if you are attracted by this neutral look. 

9. Go ahead and be innovative



I know this is a pretty basic tip, but many people overlook it. Your wall can create interest in many ways. Buy an innovative clock and you will create a lot of buzz around it. Remember that time is something that you check very often, so make it interesting to look at. Find more designer ideas here
