Choosing wall art can be a challenge. There is no doubt about it. What color, size, frames? The list goes on. We're here to help with a few basic guidelines to set you in the right direction.
MIX MEDIUMS & TEXTURES
To create instant interest, mix photography with abstracts, illustrations and canvas.
CHOOSE A STYLE
I know, this is a tough one. Here are a few styles we love.
feminine & romantic
Pastels, florals and destinations like Paris and Lisbon are very feminine and romantic.
A true bohemian style will have desert vibes and orange hues.
black and white
Are you more modern? Black and white is the way to go. It's simplistic and minimal.
SIZE & FRAMING
This is definitely the hardest part, especially if you're planning a gallery wall.
For individual art over a queen bed, size 24x36 to 30x45 inches is standard. A king bed can fit 32x48 or 40x60 inches.
Over a sofa, big is best. Hang either a horizontal 32x48 inch art print (or larger) or a gallery wall set. With a gallery wall set, you'll need to measure your wall but here are some ideas; a set of three vertical 20x30 inch prints, a set of four vertical 16x24 inch prints, a set of two vertical 24x36 inch prints, a set of four horizontal 20x30 or 24x36 inch prints.
Hang art 8-10 inches above furniture as the art should look as if it is a part of the furniture and not floating above it.
For framing, we have a couple of helpful blog posts about where to find affordable and custom frames for all art print sizes,
