A Quick Guide to Choosing Fabulous Wall Art

So, you’re looking for *that* piece, that will tie the whole room together or make it pop! Selecting the right piece of art can be tricky, especially when you are trying to envision a piece in-store or online, in your home.

We’ve put together this handy guide to help you chose the right print for your space.

If you love it, go for it

The first rule is if you see a piece and fall in love with it…throw all the other rules out the window. You don’t need to worry about colour, size or if it matches. If it makes you happy, excited, calm or any other positive emotion, go for it!


Measure or keep an idea in mind of how big you want the artwork to be, to give you a guide of what might work. Consider the size- do you want a large focal point on a blank wall or perhaps something a little smaller to hang above a bed or couch. You may want a smaller piece to complement an existing style – smaller pieces are great to double or triple up to create an awesome effect.

Colour and style

Colour is closely related to mood and emotion, so look for something that matches the mood you want to create in a room. For example, most people want their bedroom to be a calm haven – search for neutral colours or light blues and pinks, as they create a soothing effect. Soft shapes will do the same. In other spaces you can be bolder, such as the dining room – a loud, attention-grabbing piece is a perfect conversation starter when guests come over.

Don’t forget to update

Changing a piece of artwork is a fantastic (and relatively inexpensive) way to give a room a face lift. Trust us, replacing a piece that’s been on the wall for years will do wonders for creating a refreshed feel in your home. It’s also loads of fun picking a new piece, too!
