5 TIPS FOR STYLING ART IN YOUR DECOR

5 TIPS FOR USING ART IN YOUR DECOR If you have blank walls or spaces in your home and want to bring in some personality with pieces of art, I’m sharing 5 Tips for Styling Art in Your Decor to help you get started.

Art is a great way to bring character to a space but it can sometimes be daunting when making choices about the style or how to style it so I hope this is helpful…

Have a common connection

When you think about accessorising a space, there needs to be a common connection between the pieces you choose to create a cohesive look. The same applies to art.

Choosing coordinating colours and tones or a ‘feeling’ and style can really help such as muted tones, varying blues, abstract or perhaps nods to nature. If your style is eclectic the connection could actually be that none of the styles or tones match!

Saving what appeals to you on Pinterest can really help you decide on the style of art to choose and also how you hang it.

Think about frames

Frames can really help to set the tone and harmonise with the style of the room such as existing pieces of furniture.

The oak frames in our family room work beautifully with our coffee table and bring the rustic calm vibe we wanted to create but we have mixed up frames throughout the house for added interest. 

Black frames in the hallway bring a modern dramatic contrast whilst still working beautifully with the oak frames in the adjacent family room because the theme of the art between them is connected and the designs of each space work harmoniously together. The frames and the art  are all from Poster Store.

If you wanted a glam room for example, metallic and mirrored frames would work really well.

5 TIPS FOR USING ART IN YOUR DECOR

Create the vibe you want

The style of the art you choose can bring a particular vibe to decor, but so can the way you present it.

In our home we’ve gone for neutrals with beachy vibes in an understated way because I love the Modern Boho with Hamptons look and it brings a real sense of casual calm to the space.

If you wanted to feel energised in an office for example, you might want to choose bold vibrant colours in one huge statement piece.

A general tip to follow when hanging artwork (as used in galleries) is that the centre of it should be approximately 145cm above the floor, because that’s eye level for the average person. However, take into account the type of room, height and size of the space and look you want to go for too.

Consider how you group it

A gallery wall provides high impact which could be eclectic and organic by mixing different frames and art styles in a casual way. Alternatively you could have uniform art and frames within a box (where all the frame edges run along the same outside line to create a box shape) for a more modern organised look.

Arranging the frames on the floor can help and there are also some great templates available on sites such as Pinterest. 

Play with sizes

What I love about interior design in general is that you can get creative and stamp your personality on a space.

Play about with a mixture of styles, frames and tones that work for you and consider small touches such as mixing the sizes of your frames together like we’ve done here for added interest:
