Art has the power to transform a space from ordinary to extraordinary. It adds personality, depth, and emotion to your interior design. Incorporating art into your home can be intimidating, but with a few tips and tricks, you can create an artful living space that reflects your unique style and personality. You don’t need a big budget, and we’re going to let you into a secret that it’s the frame that is key when it comes to awesome art.
If you have an A3 printer you can actually print out files from Etsy from as little as £5, get these framed beautifully for a cost effective uplift. We love this abstract art which works brilliantly in a black frame.
If you can’t print the art yourself you can choose a poster to buy from sites such as Desenio or Junique. If you need some guidance when it comes to choosing the right frame they have created pairings, however for long-lasting quality we recommend investing in a frame separately. Here is an example of what you can achieve with prints from Desenio:
When you are choosing a frame bear in mind that different styles will suit different images. We like to use more than one style of frame which then gives a layered look with depth. This differentiates bespoke framing from a high street purchase. It also means that you can make sure each frame complements the individual artwork in each one.
If you have a complex colour to match with, for example a certain shade of blue or green already in place in the room, many Etsy sellers offer bespoke canvas paintings where you request special colours or designs. These are sent rolled in a tube for you to have ‘stretched’ by local framers that really enable you to complement your scheme in a cost effective way. Here is one example from Etsy and you can see some ways that the artwork has been customised:
You could consider getting a cheaper canvas print and having it framed by professionals into a ‘box frame’. This really elevates the pieces and makes them look much more costly than they were. Add contrast with a pale gold or black frame to really make it pop.
Art isn’t just about what hangs on the walls. Think about how you can incorporate art into other design elements, such as textiles, furniture, and accessories. A patterned rug or a sculptural vase can be just as impactful as a painting or photograph.
