There are also large format canvases or removable wallpaper murals you can use to create a big, dramatic focal point. Last thing, choose art that is vibrant or graphic or powerful. Otherwise, what is the point? Next, decide how high to hang your wall art. Wall art height is the concept that goes wrong the most. The general rule of thumb is to hang wall art at your sight line, so you do not have to look up too high or too low at it.
Browse these wall decor ideas that are sure to add style to your home. Go for large scale art, an oversize painting or photograph will command attention and set the tone in a small space. Try a black and white photo in a minimalist space or add color with a vibrant abstract piece. Create a gallery wall, nothing adds personality and color quite like a gallery wall.
Our series of embellished fabric canvases create a wonderfully calm collection with just enough sparkle to create an impactful display. For asymmetrical galleries, be sure to include 1 to 2 larger scale pieces, hanging these first and then group your smaller pieces around them. The easiest way to create an effective gallery wall is to first trace around each piece onto newspaper or kraft paper, cut out the resulting shapes and using bluetack, hang the templates on the wall, moving them around until you find the best combination for your wall art display.
Instead, choose smaller pieces that can be laid like a collage or gallery wall like the contemporary living room above. Hang wall art in a diptych or triptych pattern, which is basically two, three or more panels of art that flow. Be sure to leave at least 2 inches between the pieces. You can do bigger spacing if you have a huge wall, just keep it consistent.
