Art For Your Living Room 2021

A comfortable living space is vital to your home. It’s a place in which to relax, spend quality time with family and friends, and forget the stresses of the day.

Your living room art is central to its decor. The atmosphere created by your wall art and its synergy with the rest of your interior styling can be vital to an inviting, happy home.

Whatever your style, filling a large blank wall with artwork or creating a new focal point in your living room could be the finishing touch your home decor needs. A large canvas print could frame your sofa. An array of fine art prints leaning on your mantle would create a striking gallery shelf. Or a timeless gallery wall could be right up your street.

A grid arrangement for a gallery wall gives a stylish, uniform finish. Perfect for making otherwise simple colours - like the pink and violet tinted greys of the fabrics above - pop. This particular set is divine in its simplicity.

Retro Revival

Mid-century modern is making its comeback in the world of art prints. With soft curves, shapes and repeated lines, this is a style that just keeps on giving; reminiscent of jukeboxes, musical staves, and colourful matching tracksuits.

You could also think about contrasting different home decor trends with retro for an eclectic or maximalist feel. These are well and truly on the up in 2021 after years of minimalism. There’s beauty in boldness, afterall.

Original Paintings

One of the best ways to evoke emotion through your wall decor is by choosing original art. It's a piece that's totally unique to you and your artist of choice. 

It's perfect for making a statement, showcasing a style and mood that's yours - and yours alone. It's bound to become the crowning glory of your living room, if not your entire home. An original painting is sure to leave your guests awestruck.

But it will also bring you joy on a daily basis. Owners of original artwork often form a greater sentimental attachment to their piece than to the majority of their other possessions. Viewing it will give you a warm fuzzy feeling, knowing you're the owner of something so distinctive and meaningful.

Our speciality is abstract artwork. That's down to the influence of our founder, who's an independent artist. All our original art is hand painted right here in the UK, so you can be sure it's high quality and authentic.

Portraits

Depending on the art style, portraits can add a touch of decadence, sensuality or fun to your room. These may feature iconic figures in history; ones who stood for causes close to your heart.

A faceless silhouette makes for a wonderful escapist print - perhaps reminding you of your own adventures from the past, or dreams for the future. A beautiful portrait art print is bound to command attention.

Graffiti Art

Our current limited edition art prints combine edgy portraiture, urban photography and graffiti. These striking centrepieces add style to any modern living room and are perfect for making a statement.

They could also make wonderful gifts for young adults moving into their first home or going off to university. Our artwork is crafted using only the latest printing technology and the finest art paper, so you can expect vivid colour that lasts over 100 years. 

Think Big

A single large piece of artwork can define your living space. Consider whether you want the colour of your focal point to provide a complementary accent to the room’s existing palette, or whether you want it to blend in.

There are also different kinds of hanging art to consider. Canvas prints have a finish that’s closest to original art, as it gives the illusion of brush strokes hand painted straight onto the canvas. They make for imposing, authentic large pieces.

Our fine art prints, on the other hand, come with real glass glazing and a solid wood frame. This produces an expensive, sleek finish.

Mix and Match

Gallery walls are perfect for mixing and matching different art movements, mediums, styles and sizes of artwork. The result is spectacular.

They work best as a way to highlight central or important aspects of your living room. This could be over your sofa, for example. 

But, also try to think outside the box. Your art pieces may match each other, but actually contrast the rest of your living room instead. The set below does this beautifully; charcoal greys and blue-green shades adding drama to a pastel pink palette.

Perhaps your cosy armchair, elegant chaise lounge or antique bookcase is your favourite piece of furniture in your living room. A gallery wall is a great way to draw the eye to this area too and surround it with art that means something to you. 

It doesn’t matter if these aren't in the centre of your room. Gallery walls are really striking when they go round corners in your room, or way up to the ceiling. Any way you can play with shape, angles, size, and height will make your space captivating for you and your guests. 

Black & White

Monochrome will forever be a classic look. It oozes sophistication, mystery and style whilst remaining timeless and understated. 

Pair black and white prints with abstract art and minimalism for an uber modern finish, or contrast black and white prints to a splash of colour on a feature wall. Achromatic wall art is incredibly versatile and suited to many interior styles and living rooms.

Another great way to tap into this is by featuring line art, which is often also nude, in your space. These art prints emulate hand illustration and have surged in popularity in recent years. They strike the perfect balance between seduction and sophistication.
