Wall Decor / September 3, 2018 / Jazmin Cavazos.
What if you are hanging wall art over a sofa, bed or table? Choose a piece of art or a series, that is the same length as the furniture piece or smaller. Avoid wall decor that is wider than the furniture piece, it looks totally weird. What if you have a gigantic wall? Large canvas wall art can be very expensive or hard to get into your apartment.
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.
If you love the look of a gallery wall, but would also like to avoid the task of spacing and hanging everything just right, get a similar effect by using floating shelves and picture ledges. These unobtrusive shelves are easy to hang, try grouping two or three on a wall together. They are great for displaying a mix of framed photos and art alongside interesting items like small plants, carefully curated antique knickknacks, table clocks and stoneware vases.
You could also find a wonderful art print or oversized mirror framed in reclaimed wood or metal. Large pieces like these not only make short work of large walls, they are also excellent conversation starters and can even lend added drama to a room when they cast shadows at certain times of day. Another tip is to hang similar objects in pairs or triptychs. After all, three prints are better than one when it comes to large walls.
