Growing up, our home was always a place that celebrated design, my mother went back to college when I was around 10yrs old to do an Interior Design qualification and she often offered advice as well as setting up her own workshop producing guided frames for high end interior stores. As you can imagine our walls became an extension of that and certainly not a space that was overlooked, from framed tapestry they had picked up on their travels to prints picked up at auction houses and even on or two commissioned pieces, art was always in our lives.
The walls of our homes offer so much vertical space, space that can be dressed up to our liking and there are so many great reasons why we should as it's the perfect way to showcase your interests and personality. Here are a few simple ways to bring Art into your home
1. Start off with some Black and White classics - if your a little afraid of bright colours or clashing with your furniture then going monochrome is always a good place to start, opting for an iconic image such as one of the Vogue 100 covers or even an one of your own photographs.
2. Cluster artwork together - if you have a few smaller prints or there is a particular artist that you love then why not cluster a few images together making a statement wall.
3. Showcase your interests, for example if your a major movie buff or have a passion for music then why not frame a album cover or movie poster and King and McGaw have a fantastic selection
4. Utilise all your wall space - the great thing about hanging up art is you can break the rules, with an array of shapes and sizes why not get creative and think of innovative areas to hang your work of art. Why not have a huge print in the restroom or at the top of your stairway?
5. Inspire yourself with some typography, there is an array of positive quotes and sayings around that you could either print yourself or go for a large size from a designer or online store.
6. Celebrate travel by framing a map of your favourite city or a collection of travel images that are not only visually beautiful but double up as a memory wall. We have just purchased and framed a large world map print for our sons room as he has a fascination with countries and continents and not only does is look fantastic but it's also educational.
It's really simple and don't be scared, even if it's a little trial and error, use your wall space as an extension of yourself, your likes, passions and interests and basically have fun with it.
