10 Easy and Creative Ways with Wall Art

On of my most favourite ways to decorate a room is with wall art. I can never have enough! I’ve always written about how to use wall art here on the blog, like this post and this post for example, and I’ve got a great Pinterest board that gets a lot of love so I thought I’d put together one more post on some of my favourite art looks of the moment.

#1 Dark and Moody:

I’ve been a fan of this look for a little while now and Desenio does it so well. Dark walls and moody, meaningful art displayed in a creative collage. This look is so easy to put together. Don’t be afraid of the dark walls, just liven it up with lots of colour.

#2 Kids’ Room:

When my girls were little, it was my favourite thing to create wall art for their nursery and bedroom walls. Again, this can be so easy. Simply collect some of your favourite cards or wrapping paper and frame them in a symmetrical display just like this one. Websites like Englebert Strauss has all the tools you need for creating art like this.

#3 Eastern Colour:

Countries like Turkey and Morocco have such vibrant interiors, and it’s catching on here too. Embrace colour and be adventurous when it comes to your art, and your interiors for that matter.

#4 Monochrome:

If rich and vibrant isn’t your thing, perhaps you love a more sedate and calming monochrome scheme. Again another collage display from art experts Desenio with some of their most popular prints. A scheme like this never gets old.

#5 Bold and Clashy:

If you love bold and brassy wallpapers, don’t be afraid to accessorise the walls with art. Some think that you can’t add more pattern to a patterned wall, but if you get the proportions and colour combos right, anything goes.

#6 Abstract Wall Murals:

Why not decorate the whole wall with some art via a wall mural? Wall Sauce has some great examples and I’m loving this summer feel abstract design with such a beautiful coral and green colour combination. Coordinate your art with the rest of your decor seamlessly.

#7 Scandi:

This is a shot from my attic bedroom taken a little while ago with my Scandi corner. I’ve laid the art on the floor against the wall and it’s stayed there. Just a different way to use art to decorate a corner.

# 8 Think Creatively:

So art doesn’t have to go straight on the walls. Create something beautiful and inspiring using wall papers; make your own art and display it how you like. I know not everyone loves a statement wall anymore, but statement art is another story. Right?

Blue Collection:

Blue has to be one of my favourite colours for the home right now. It’s calming and restorative and mixes well with so many other colours. Here’s my collection of blue art in the living room. It’s had a slightly different makeover and I’ll be revealing that very soon, but the art has remained.

#10 Photo Collage:

I took this shot a few months ago for a styled piece I did and still love the holiday, adventures vibe from this wall art. Using lots of different methods from noticeboards, to string and pegs you can create something bespoke and meaningful to you, in a very short space of time. Polaroid style photos are cute and easy to update when you want a different look.

All of these ideas are easy to recreate just make sure you have all the right tools. Places like Engelbert Strauss’s website enables you to get hold of all the right tools you’ll need for the job, from hammers to nails and more.

Have you created any new art displays in your home recently?

    I always feel alone so I need a wall paint which makes me feel better when I enter the room or else wakes up in the morning. So shed some lights on this. Thanks.
