ART IS A SELF-EXPRESSION FREEDOM
Think about your walls as a blank canvas. They are the opportunity to showcase your personality in your own way — through colour, subject, and composition. The artworks we choose to hang on our walls make the space feel uniquely our own.
With that in mind, you have to know that choosing art photo print is more of an intuitive process than you might think. But, from a practical point of view, there are a few steps you can follow to guide your art purchase, and make it a worthwhile investment.
1. CONSIDER YOUR AVAILABLE WALL SPACE
Whether you have a large or small wall to fill consider your available space. Depending on it you can choose to decorate with one bold piece of art or a gallery wall with smaller frames.
2. CHOOSE ART THAT COMPLEMENTS YOUR HOME DECOR
What is your home decor style? Is it eclectic, bohemian or minimal look? Determine what kind of art might fit with the rest of your decor.
3. THINK ABOUT THE KIND OF ART YOU LIKE
What kind of art speaks to you? Do you like black and white or colour, think about the the kind of photography you prefer - nature, people, street, abstract etc.
4. WHAT ART DO YOU ALREADY HAVE?
Do you already have pieces that you admire and can build your collection off of? Try to think about what artworks are going to work with the ones you own already. Maybe you need to start from scratch!
5. SIZE MATTERS - ONE PERFECT PRINT ON THE WALL
Make a statement with a collection of extra-large prints.
6. THINK ABOUT THE COLOURS
You might want to complement the colours in your space or catch the eye with some conflicting colours that might contrast with your current decor or colour of the walls. Maybe there’s an accent colour you really vibe with that you want to see more of in your space. Choose colors that speak to you—not what's trendy
7. CHOOSE THE RIGHT FINISH
Stick to the aluminium frame with passe-partout for a classic and more stylish feel, or up the saturation with clashing tones of the modern artworks printed on Premium Archival Photo Paper under acrylic glass
8. BUY ART YOU TRULY LOVE
Buy art you truly love from artists you’re invested in and don’t compromise on quality.
