Wall Decor / July 23, 2018 / Ana Card.
Are you having trouble deciding what size or type of wall decor to choose or how to hang pictures? A good rule of thumb is to choose wall art that takes up the width of the wall, minus 6-12 inches on each side, so it looks like it is centered, like the image above. For example, you have a 36 inch wall. Leave about 6 inches on each side of the piece of art, which means you should choose something around 24 inches wide.
Hang your duo fairly close together to create a purposeful look, you do not want more than around 10cm between them so that to the eye, they become a single style statement. For a larger room, consider using the negative space as part of the whole and hang them slightly to the left or right of a piece of furniture to create an eclectic look.
Well, if your walls are crying out for a little bit of love, then our post today will give you some tips on a few different ways you can display wall art to help bring your room to life. The single statement, for an incredibly simple but effective display, why not let your piece take centre stage? This works best on single large scale pieces of wall art that really command attention, like watercolour woods printed canvas which creates a single point of focus in a room.
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.
