Unique art displays
There’s always something incredibly satisfying when you mix up your space, bringing a little extra personality to your home. An excellent way to show you and your family’s personality is through your choice of art and how you present it around the home.
As an art gallery director, it is a large part of my role to help my clients find the perfect piece to brighten their homes and offer some cool and quirky styling tips along the way. So, if you’re looking for new ways to showcase your art, besides the obvious wall hang, I’ve shared my best advice below:
The odds are in your favour
Savvy decorators value a sense of consistency, which is achieved by positioning art within a considered configuration. It can be attractive to the eye to arrange an odd number of objects symmetrically for an ordered, finished look.
Try hanging similar-sized artworks side-by-side at uneven heights with uniformed distances between. The finished look will seem effortlessly coordinated while also giving more structure to the space.
When doing this, remember that odd numbers will strangely feel more harmonious. Groups of three always create a sleek and sophisticated feel!
Use your art and architecture to your advantage
Modern, contemporary, open-plan homes can sometimes make a house feel more like a hotel than a home. If you’re looking for ways to avoid this, art is an incredible way to bring a depth of warmth to your home.
A trend we see a lot is the mix and match gallery wall. To master this form of styling, why not try a few unique alternatives that will highlight the contemporary architectural aspects of your house and offer a window of personality that’s guaranteed to transform the space.
A great place to start with a mixed gallery wall is to look at where the whitest space in your home is. A large wall may be calling for an oversized landscape piece or a unique series of still lifes to provide a different mood to the layout.
In terms of styling, my advice would be not to be afraid to be eclectic and to mix it up with mediums, sizes and frames. Nothing shows the varied aspects of your personality better than a busy and entirely YOU gallery wall.
