  1. Should you put art on every wall?

    • This very much depends on your room size, what you already have in the room accessories wise.
    • If you have for example a large house with high ceilings and long walls then you can put art on every wall, possibly even two to three but if you have a smaller house, with shorter walls and lower ceilings then prints on just one wall per room may suit.
  2. How much of a wall should art cover?

  • This again depends on the size of the room, size of the walls and your style but ideally anything between two thirds to three fourths of your wall space

     7. What kind of art should I put in my living room?

  1. Does Wall art have to match?

    • In general, our advice is no, your wall art doesn't need to be the same colour pallet as you wall, sofa, or any other item in the room. Black and white art looks great in any room, poster quotes and scenic landscape prints are classic and timeless and look great in most rooms.
  2. How big should my wall art be?

    • The one thing to remember is wall art should enhance your room not steal the show, use black spaces as a way to enrich what is already in the room which means you don’t need to fill every wall space with pictures. Empty wall space can be used as a crucial element to add to your décor.
  3. What kind of art can you hang in a bathroom?

    • Practicality wise ensure you go for protected prints that are behind glass, or frames with a sealed back due to the moisture that resides in a bathroom.
    • Classic or minimalist prints work great for bathroom wall art, also cheeky word prints and animal wall art can work too.
