Think Colour:

The shades of the art print should compliment the colour scheme of your living room. This can be done by choosing hues that fit within the same tonal palette for a harmonious feel, alternatively, you can choose an opposing colour for a bold contrast. You can find the perfect shade by looking at what is opposite on the colour wheel.

Your Style:

This is where your personality can really shine through your choice of art style. Your living room art print should reflect your own personal taste and communicate to your guests who you are and what your vibe is! You can choose from a wide range of art poster styles such as minimalist, vintage, abstract, pop art, and more. For example, choosing art prints containing natural elements such as landscapes and natural textures will convey an earthy, rustic vibe. You can even choose a style or theme that relates to your passions or hobbies, your posters should make you feel good and inspired. Are you a travel enthusiast?

The Size:

Contrary to popular belief, size does matter! The dimensions of the art poster should match the size of the wall and surrounding furniture. A large wall space with a small singular art print will get lost and create an awkward unbalance in the home. That same awkwardness can be found if the artwork is too large for the room, your poster needs to be surrounded by a fair amount of space to make sure it is the star of the show, not suffocating an overcrowded room. A great rule of thumb is to fill around two-thirds of the space with art, you can do this with one singular large piece or create a living room gallery wall with multiple complimentary prints.
