Framed Canvas Wall Art
Turn your glaring white wall into a stunning canvas for standout color and defining style with framed wall art!
Why Choose the Framed Canvas Wall Art?
The right frame can define and contrast with muted colors and soft lines to deepen a dull space – and turn an ordinary picture into an outstanding accent piece. Imagine, for example, a close-up picture of a sandcastle, arranged on a beige wall. Without a frame, the color of the sand could blend – to the point of disappearing almost completely! – into the color of the wall. Now imagine the same picture on the same wall, only this time the picture has a thick black frame. Now, the picture stands out; the black of the frame brings out the shadows of the sandcastle, and the picture works as an accent piece in its own right. Thus, the power of a frame.
Collages of Framed Canvas Wall Art
When styling framed canvas art within a collage, first measure your wall space to get a sense of exactly how many pieces you can use and which size each piece should be. If you want to fill up a generous portion of space, consider alternating the size of each piece. Picture, for example, a collage of photos that make up one giant square; while you can’t go wrong with four photos of the same size (one pair stacked on top of the other) arranging two large photos with four smaller photos will bring an unexpected charm to a classic layout.
Secondly, if you are planning a collage of both framed pieces and non-framed pieces, limit your collage to two distinct styles of art; assign one style to the group of non-frames – and the other to the group frames. For example, a few black and white photographs of flowers or trees, when arranged with a few colorful paintings of city views, could create a stunning contrast; just make sure to keep a balanced, organized aesthetic by framing either the photographs or the paintings. (Because a frame itself is already a tool of contrast and definition, framing each and every piece – when there are multiple styles represented – can create a disorienting effect for the viewer.)
Placing a Framed Canvas Wall Art Collage
Finally, to figure out the exact best location for your collage, look for areas in the room that lack color or pattern – such as an empty space above a grey couch or a beige side table. Framed canvas wall art is also an effortless way to spruce up areas that lack the floor space for decorative furniture, such as a narrow hallway or a small niche.
Also, take note of balance of the room. If one side of the room boasts a potted indoor tree next to a loveseat and recliner (and the other end of the room keeps only the television and television stand), a framed canvas wall art collage on the opposite wall will effortlessly offset the difference – and refresh the space as a whole.
