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.
If you are hanging art above a piece of furniture, leave between 3 and 8 inches of space above a sofa or table. Filling a large wall space can be intimidating, and one of the easiest wall decoration ideas is to rely on a single large piece to do the job. This can be an original painting or a large scale fine art photograph, both can be expensive options, so take the time to visit galleries, meet artists and find a work you absolutely love.
The other way is to start with a central, dominant piece, hang it in the middle, and then add things around it organically and over time. Whichever method you choose, avoid a boring grid like pattern by mixing in items of various shapes and textures. An oval mirror, a textile, a clock, historic artifacts, musical instruments all are great for breaking up the straight lines of square and rectangular framed photos and art.
Old school green chalkboards offer a vintage vibe that their counterparts can not match. The best part? You can change the look of your wall with some chalk and a little creativity. Dress up old portraits with ornate brass frames for a vintage inspired look. Pair the vintage wall decor with more modern pieces to achieve an overall eclectic feel.
