You might have great hair like Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, but how’s your eye for finishing your newly-decorated room with Wall Art? It matters not – because we’re about to give you five fabulous ideas for placing your personalised Wall Art like a pro.
Using Wall Art is guaranteed to give your fresh, new lounge or dining room that certain je ne sais quoi. And it’s pretty straightforward to buy Wall Art online as you sit sipping a well-deserved Prosecco on a Saturday evening.
But, before you go ahead and buy, have you thought about the variety of different ways you could potentially place your Wall Art to give your room the wow factor?
Personalised Wall Art Layouts
As fabulous as Llewelyn-Bowen’s luscious locks, these five ideas should give you the creative impetus to whip up a Wall Art feature that’ll give your interior the impact you’re looking for.
The pièce de résistance of the room. The Showstopper. The can’t-take-my-eyes-off-it Canvas Print. A piece of large wall art that dominates (yet complements) a room’s decoration and finish. Once in-situ, it’ll deservedly demand the attention of your friends, family and visitors.
Subtle but striking, The Centrepiece is a sure-fire way to make a statement in any room – regardless of whether it’s a cherished family photo or scenic landscape shot.
The Trusty Trio
Our example below focuses on stunning framed wedding photo prints, but you can mix it up and choose whichever photos you like, be it holiday snaps or your little one’s first birthday.
Whilst using photos from the same event or place works particularly well, the beauty of personalised Wall Art is: you’re the artist – and you can choose whichever photos or graphics you want to make your masterpiece.
As ridiculous as it sounds, Wall Art doesn’t actually have to… hang on your wall. Especially with smaller Wall Art like an 8×8” Slim Canvas or 7×5” Wood Panel, you can easily and effectively place them on a mantelpiece, chest of drawers of any piece of furniture that is up against a wall.
If you don’t want to conform to the norm, Truprint’s Wood Panels come with a mini easel so they can stand freely on practically any surface. If you opt for a Canvas Print, all you need to do is gently stand it on your furniture’s surface and gently lean it against the wall (see below).
Similar to the Trusty Trio, The Mixer makes use of multiple personalised Wall Art prints (one or more being different sizes) to create a stunning interior feature wall. As you’ll see below, you can use a larger landscape print married with two smaller portrait prints to achieve perfect symmetry.
Alternatively, you can mix it up completely with two or three different size Canvas Prints.
We call it Higgledy-Piggledy Chic, but it’s probably more commonly known as a Collage Wall Print or Gallery Wall Art layout. Higgledy-Piggledy Chic sounds better, though. It’s an interior design trend that’s been around for some time now, but its growth in popularity is showing no signs of slowing down.
The opportunities with a collage or gallery style Wall Art feature are quite literally endless. From some of your favourite photos to pop art graphics and inspirational quotes, the choice is yours as to what will feature, and which particular layout you go for.
And the best thing about a Gallery Wall Art layout? It can grow organically, and you can keep adding to it with new photo prints as the months and years go by.
