How do you want it to feel? Would you like to see neat rows of similar works, or do you want to arrange eclectic gallery walls that showcase a variety of works? Either approach can work with any style of art and decor – you can create a breathtaking gallery wall with antique paintings or choose a refined collection of modern art prints to display in a clean grid.
Find your start.
Do you have a painting, print or photograph that you absolutely love? If you have some treasured pieces in hand, you’re already off to a great start. If not, find something that speaks to you, something that encapsulates how you want the rest of the room to feel, or even something that brings a smile to your face. Whatever you choose, this piece can be the anchor point that you can use as the foundation for your new collection. You can coordinate any new art and decor you pick out with your existing artwork. Whether you want to make an eclectic or a cohesive display, an anchor piece ensures a cohesive end result that speaks to your unique personal style.
FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
Ultimately, it’s your happiness that matters most. However you choose to go about selecting wall art for your living room, focus on the decorative objects and artwork that bring you joy. If you love the look of a simple black and white photograph, use that as a jumping-off point to find a collection of gorgeous pictures for your walls. If you want to create a fun, vibrant feel in a living room that you intend to use for parties and cozy gatherings of friends, you might want to pick out some colorful prints with a sense of humor. It’s all about what you want – feel free to follow your heart!
