7 Ways to Style Your Wall with Art

Hanging art in a few homes including my own at the moment. Thought I would share with you 7 great ways to style your wall with art!

Play with Proportion

Start with a focal point, then layout your design mixing shapes and sizes
but keep it simple with 3 – 4 different sizes

Elevate Your Basics

When using black and white photos for art why not mix them with neutral tone color mats and frames; a great way to bring it to the next level.

Keep with a Theme

When creating a more simple look keep the same style art or same color frames. If you want more of mix then have groups that have matching frames to pull it all together.

Look High and Low

Why not use shelves so you can view your wall sitting and standing. Love that these can be painted.

Get Creative

Get Graphic

Play on the color first, then use large abstract graphic patterns that keep the tone and feel of the space…

Kids Art

My favorite to use. It is the best art you can own, pieces your children have drawn. Frame them like you would any art showing them how proud you are of them!
