How to Choose the Right Wall Decor for Your Living Room

With the right wall art, a living room can be a major design moment in your home.

The living room is one of the most important rooms in any home. It’s where we gather, spend time with loved ones, and make memories. So how do you choose the right wall decor for your living room? Set the vibe for your living room by choosing the right art pieces for the space. 

Consider the purpose of your living room that you are decorating. Is this a formal room in the front of the house that you want to use to set the tone for the design of your entire home? Or is your living room the place where you curl up on the couch at night and watch movies with your family? Regardless of how you use your living room, there are lots of great options for wall decor that can be the cherry on top of your design!

 

Formal Living Rooms

Do you have a formal living room that you are not sure how to style? Use this opportunity to create an impactful design moment with a large statement piece. Choose a piece of art that speaks to you, like a bold graphic black and white photo, or a highly saturated painting. Then allow the art to stand out and be a “wow” moment for the room by not cluttering up the space with too much decor. 

Consider the scale of the room. A large room will require a larger piece of art to make a statement, and vice versa for a smaller room. But the effect can be the same regardless of the size of the room. A loud, over-sized piece of art can take a drab formal living room and turn it into a major design moment for your home!

 

Eclectic Living Rooms

Can’t choose just one piece of art? Then choose them all! A gallery wall is a fun way to incorporate lots of different prints, without over-complicating your design. To ensure cohesion within the decor, consider shopping for art by ‘subject’ or ‘style’. You can pick a subject like architecture, nature, or fantasy and create a thematically curated gallery wall. Or, you can choose a style like modern, vintage, or country to find art that fits seamlessly with the aesthetic of your home. Then hang all of the pieces on the same wall for an eclectic way to add major style to your living room!

Framed Wall Art Sets

A great way to make sure that your living room wall decor matches the overall design of the room is with art sets. Art sets are two or more pieces that were designed specifically to go together. This is a great option if you are looking for multiple pieces but aren’t sure how to make sure that they look good together.

With an art set, you are guaranteed to have continuity. Then you can play around with your design to decide if you want to hang the set together on the same wall, or space it out around the room. Either way, you have the piece of mind knowing that all of your wall decor matches!

Light it up with neon 

Known for its use in commercial spaces, neon is having a moment in interior design, and it’s not going away any time soon. Neon pieces are a bold way to make a statement without over-complicating your space. Incorporating neon signs in your framed art is a fun way to make a bold statement with your art.

 Traveling the world has been a challenge the last couple of years, so what should you do when you can’t go out and see all the sights? Bring the sights to you! Landscapes are one of spring’s hottest art trends. Landscape art can transform a space and usher in some natural peace. Choose pieces that remind you of your favorite vacation or where you grew up.

Return to Nature

Incorporating natural elements in your interior design is very on-trend right now. We want to feel connected to nature, and one way to do that is by incorporating sculptures that portray shapes and objects found in nature. Sculptures made of earthy materials like terracotta or porous rock are a great way to ground your space in natural elements that are both comforting and inspiring. Showcase nature in your wall art by choosing pieces that feature plants, animals, and the great outdoors!
