Consider the desired impact.

Do you want the wall art to be the focal point of the room or melt into the background by merging with existing design elements? Here are few options at your disposal.

TELL A STORY: This artwork of a twilight in Vernazza, placed on the wall above the sofa will form the central focus for most living room layouts.

ENLIVEN: This artwork placed on the wall above the bed will naturally be the central focus for most bedrooms.

This artwork placed at eye level straight away draws attention of the viewer.

Use eye-level placement.

Ideal Viewing Distance.

Scale changes ideal viewing distance. 

A general rule of thumb for determining ideal viewing distance is to stand at three times a print’s diagonal dimension. This tends to place the entire image well within a viewer’s field of vision in such a way that overall general detail can be resolved at once, minimizing panning and scanning.

Example: To see a 4×5” print you have to get close to it. You can’t see anything but its shape and color from the end of a long hall. To see a 8×12" print in its entirety you have to stand well away from it. If you stand very close to it, you won’t be able to see the whole image, much less anything else. 

Feel free to experiment.

Use paper templates and painters tape to experiment with different placement and spacing. This is a great way to determine the arrangement of photos by themselves or in conjunction with other artforms.


Showcase wall art with lighting.

Look for wall-mounted spotlights and install them above or below a framed photo or canvas to add additional interest and dimension.


Above all else, go with your intuition.

When it comes to acquiring artwork, prioritise pieces that captivate your heart, ones that you eagerly anticipate seeing each day, and that truly embody your unique style. Once you've curated a collection of beloved artworks, embrace these wall art ideas to elevate your overall design scheme.
