Styling with a Piece of Canvas Wall Art in the Home
Canvas wall art is an effortless way to accent any home with a touch of ambient color and refreshing style. Whether your style is traditional, contemporary or something in between (think: eclectic or bohemian), the perfect piece or collage of canvas wall art will both open and refine any space.
Why Should I Style with Canvas Wall Art?
Canvas wall art is art, via paintings, photographs, sketches, etc., printed on a thick fabric stretched tightly over a wooden frame. Widely popular for its ability to make colors stand out – and last for years – canvas adds a touch of relaxed style and refines any existing aesthetic.
How to Style the Kitchen and Bathroom with Canvas Wall Art
When styling your kitchen, look for canvas wall art pieces that will give your kitchen a refreshed yet comfortable feel. Consider, for example, a watercolor of a bouquet of roses in bright yellows and pinks – the soft brushstrokes and dewy pigments of the watercolor will relax the ambience, while the vivid hues add a playful splash of energy.
When styling your bathroom, play to its clean, crisp feel by choosing canvas art featuring water, sky and other natural perspectives in cooling colors. Soft blues, whites and greens layered over an off-white wall give a fresh vibe; mix in bold geometric lines and patterns in stark black and white to bring out the cooler tones of scenic paintings.
How to Style the Bedroom* with Canvas Wall Art
Give your bedroom a relaxed, calming aura with canvas wall art featuring soft lines and tones. Avoid busy patterns, contrasting shades or pictures of lively scenes, as these can boost the overall energy levels. On the other hand, sticking with light hues, like pastel pink or sky blue, and simple subjects will add color, style and an easy ambience.
How to Style the Dining Room and Living Room with Canvas Wall Art
Because it’s where your friends and family gather for meals, dining room canvas art should create a warm and inviting air. Go with pictures of plants and the outdoors for lighthearted breeze – or a bright still life painting for a touch of unexpected charm.
The best type of canvas wall art for your living room will mainly depend on your style. If your overall style leans contemporary or modern, go with bold abstract pieces featuring geometric patterns and lines to seal in the look. If your overall style leans traditional, go with softer lines and colors, and avoid geometric patterns; opt instead for a focalized subject, such as an animal or plant, preferably in a neutral-hued painting. Finally, if your overall style leans eclectic or bohemian, go with a collage of both abstract photography and impressionistic paintings. For a truly boho-inspired feel, let colors synch and styles contrast – or vice versa.
