Artwork is often overlooked in a home but if you choose the right pieces, combinations, colours and frames you can create a statement that is jaw dropping.
You don’t always have to hang artwork. I love the look of layering on top of a hutch or buffet. Add in a few eclectic pieces and you can truly create an artwork statement in your space.
This is a small space but we wanted to make a huge impact so we went vertical. We picked great pieces from an online source called Posterjack, added in some faux stag heads and let me tell you – this space certainly makes people look twice.
Artwork isn’t only for adults either! Kids love to display their art and be inspired by fun quotes and inspirational images. I like to choose artwork for kids’ rooms that will grow with them.
Another tip for kids is to let them get involved in decorating. Have them create their own masterpieces and frame them for their very own gallery wall. They’ll be proud of what they produced and can swap out pieces as new ones are created.
I love to make a work space as inspiring as possible and what better way than with art, inspirational sayings and visuals.
From the moment you enter, it’s the perfect time to set the tone for the décor in your home. Art pieces don’t need to be limited to the living room or dining room; bring it right into your front foyer to welcome your guests!
I tell all of my clients not to be intimidated by artwork or hanging art. Check out sites like Posterjack who can take your
own photos and turn them into masterpieces, or you can choose from their gallery of images. Just a few clicks, then they ship right to your door.
Finally – get creative! Think outside the typical places you might put artwork! Find little nooks and empty spaces that might otherwise sit empty and dress them up with a great piece or two.
Until next time,
w&c designer girl!
