Frankly, nothing adds the final touch to a room more than a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art. Whether you go for something painterly, such as wall paintings, or choose photography, what you hang on your wall should make a dramatic statement.
Monochromatic photo art is always a strong contender for finishing off the luxury décor of your living room. Picture a living space with generously proportioned white sofas, a subdued pattern on the rug, with one large black-and-white photograph making a dramatic impact. Stick to classic furniture to ensure that the photo remains the star of the show.
Alternatively, draw inspiration from the colours of nature. Pick a piece of wall art by a contemporary nature photographer, and let the earth’s hues dictate the palette of the room it’ll hang in. For instance, a seascape shot will help you decide on just the right blues for your coastal-chic decor. Feminine botanical prints will help you find just the right pop of pink for your bedroom.
Wall paintings can also feature motifs you want to carry through the rest of your home. Going for an African theme? A wildlife print showcasing your favourite animal will draw it all together.
When it comes to wall decor, you can think outside the box – or frame, that is. Other designer arts and crafts can decorate your walls, too. Want to add earthy texture to your dining room? Curate a collection of unique plates that reflect hues used in the rest of the room.
