Do you want to decorate your wall with paintings and don’t know where to start? Here are five easy tips to help you create the perfect home gallery. Arranging wall art is not as difficult as you think!
CONSIDER THE COLOR OF THE WALLS
It is better to have a few shades in the color palette of the paintings or posters match the color of the wall they are hanging on. However, this is not a rule, but rather a recommendation. Artworks can create a sharp contrast with the wall or, conversely, almost dissolve in space. Experiment to find your own unique style!
LIGHT OR DARK FRAME?
The color of the frame affects the perception of the painting. If you want all the attention to be on the piece itself, then a light-colored frame is the best option. Dark tones are good for creating contrasts. In addition, the black frame works well with the black and white image.
COMBINE PAINTINGS WITH OTHER DECOR DETAILS
To create a complete look, combine paintings or posters with other decor: vases, your favorite books, figurines or plants in unusual pots. When choosing objects, consider the color scheme and size of the painting so that the composition looks like a whole.
WALL DECOR TRENDS 2021
There are clear trends in interior design, art and painting. Earthy tones, especially beige, remain at their peak in 2021. The 60s and 70s are also trendy along with Mediterranean influences.
HOW TO CREATE A PERFECT COMPOSITION WHEN ARRANGING WALL ART?
When creating a collage of pictures or posters, the most important thing is their arrangement. The ideal distance between frames is 5-10 centimeters, however, you can hang the paintings closer together to create the illusion of one large piece of art. The center of the composition should be approximately 145 cm above the floor. This may vary depending on the height of the ceilings. If you don’t know which area to decorate first, start from the wall behind the sofa. The edge of the sofa can be used as a starting point. The lowest picture should be at least 15 centimeters above the sofa.
