Whether you are in the process of collecting your wall art or can’t wait to display your existing collection, we have got you covered!

Wall art is one of the most potent mediums of self-expression that reflects uniqueness and individuality. It is an aesthetic that is personal yet has the ability to deeply resonate with multiple viewers. The power of wall art is such that it taps into our sensory modalities to evoke memories, feelings, and moments; touching us silently, but forcefully.  

It is no wonder that choosing the right art for a room can be a cumbersome and overwhelming process. Wall art can completely transform a space, punctuating it with intimacy and imagination. After all, no one wants to live in a house with bare walls devoid of any semblance of life. In this article, we have curated the ultimate list to ease the process of choosing the right wall art for every room in your house. 

Entryway Wall Art

The entryway, commonly referred to as the foyer, is the first impression visitors get when they enter any home. Having a beautifully curated collection adorning the walls exemplifies finesse and taste. From canvas art prints to contemporary abstract or geometric pieces, making a bold statement in the entryway will truly bring life to your home. 

You need to consider the available wall space as most entryways are narrow. Secondly, keep in mind what furniture you plan to place in the foyer. If you go for an entry seating chair, consider hanging a single piece of artwork. In case you have a console table, opt for wall art that is arranged in a grid or linear pattern. 

Importantly, don’t shy away from mixing up traditional and contemporary pieces or even adding a pop of color through your wall art. For example, if you have patterned wallpapers, choosing several small pieces of wall art that subdue the surroundings will draw more focus on the artwork.

While there are many clever ways to arrange artwork, the living room is often the most challenging space to decorate. But by following the right advice, it doesn’t have to be!

First off, wall art can include paintings, canvas prints, tapestries, digital art, photography, posters, wood prints and so much more. Don’t limit your options to a certain medium.
