Choosing an artwork is an emotional decision influenced by various factors. It can be a choice between a bold, gripping image or a subtle, captivating work that you keep keep returning to. Trust your instincts and select art that resonates with you, bringing joy, inspiration and a sense of connection.
Now that you have decided, we are happy provide you with some general advice and considerations when choosing and placing artwork in a space.
Size and Proportion: Consider the size of the wall and the surrounding furniture when choosing the size of your print. A large wall may require a larger print or a gallery wall arrangement, while a smaller wall might be better suited for a single smaller print.
Style and Theme: Determine the style and theme of the space where you intend to place the print. Consider whether the artwork aligns with the existing decor and ambiance of the room. Decide if you want the artwork to be a focal point or to blend harmoniously with the surroundings.
Color Palette: Pay attention to the colors in the space and how they will interact with the colors in the artwork. Decide if you want the print to complement the existing color scheme or provide a contrasting pop of color.
Framing and Matting: Consider the framing options for your print. Choose a frame that enhances the artwork and complements the overall aesthetic of the room. Matting can also add a polished look and help create visual balance.
Placement and Positioning: Think about the best location for the artwork in the room. Consider eye-level placement for optimal viewing, especially for pieces that you want to be the focal point. Experiment with different arrangements, such as hanging it alone, in pairs, or as part of a gallery wall.
