We all want our living rooms to be the most relaxing social space in the house for those precious few hours we crave after a busy day! Choosing art can often be tricky – how do you keep it neutral and calming with more minimalist prints?
Wall art prints are a great way to add a pop of colour and personality to any room in your home. Whether you prefer bold abstract designs or serene nature scenes, there are countless options. And with the rise of online marketplaces, it’s easier than ever to find affordable and high-quality prints from talented artists worldwide. But while you’re busy browsing and curating your collection, it’s important not to overlook the importance of protecting your investment. Specialist home insurance can provide peace of mind in case of damage or theft of your cherished wall art prints. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to ensure your policy covers your art collection and make any necessary adjustments. With the right coverage in place, you can enjoy your beautiful wall art prints without worrying about unexpected losses.
Wall art is an ideal way to change a room’s atmosphere instantly. One great way to create or enhance the calm tranquillity of a room is to use the ever-popular abstract style prints. While abstract can cover a wide range of styles and colours, I chose minimal, natural stylings with warm, muted colours that complement paired back decor and naked woods for the mellow effect I wanted. Bohemian wall art typifies laid-back living. Whilst slotting perfectly into a relaxed living room scheme, bohemian prints will also help add texture, visual interest, and personality to your walls, which I have been missing until now!
Art all the same size
My home is a real mix of styles, a fun blend of mostly preloved boho items with a few splashes of colour. If your space is a little modern and minimalist like mine, going for a gallery wall of artwork the same size can be fun.
If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest lately, you have probably seen the gallery walls with two or three large framed art and posters. These are a good option if you have a larger wall and need to fill in more space. A large set of prints will command attention. Hanging a trio of oversized prints above the sofa will lead your eyes upward and make your room seem larger.
Framed art prints and posters
The Boho aesthetic leans towards natural woods. These simple and classic sets look great with a simple neutral oak frame. Consider if you want the frame to blend into the artwork or be a bold accent. Oak frames are hugely popular if you wish to display bohemian or Scandinavian prints. These paler woods are perfect for more neutral spaces, and the light oak frames to anyone looking for a lighter wood option. They are lightweight and were no problem attaching to the wall using Command Large Picture Mounting Strips.
Art and plants
For any boho lover, mixing plants and art is a must. When combining these, a great option is to use hanging plants in pots, such as golden pothos like mine, that can trail over your artwork over time!
Artwork is very subjective; everyone likes different styles. Consider if you would like your art print to draw the eye or blend in harmoniously. Try to either have the art match the space’s colour palette or use an opposite colour scheme to make it pop. Trending colour palettes are neutrals, greys and pastels, but feel free to experiment and have fun with colour!
Choose a consistent colour palette and add texture
A key feature of the boho design aesthetic is a neutral palette. When choosing your posters stick to neutrals such as tans, creams, greys and whites with natural wood accents so that the series of prints come together and look perfect side by side. These wall art prints are gaining popularity with their warm-toned neutral sceneries. These pieces sit well and suit my area overwhelmed with plants, macrame and rattan.
Abstracts in subtle colour palettes are a perfect addition to your space. When selecting an abstract print, consider whether you want it to stand out or complement the decor. If you wish for wall art prints to be the focal point of your space, choose a simple design that uses a bold colour. Adding some wall art prints or artwork is a great way to add visual texture, and these digital abstract prints have so much texture, giving the same effect.
