10 Ways to Style Statement Art

Gallery walls have been the in the spotlight of wall decor for a while now. You’re probably an expert on curating and arranging your collection of photos and prints. But lately we’ve been moving away from large collections to small collections arranged on a photo ledge and even statement art. There is something to be said for the simplicity of one large piece on the wall instead of several small ones. It gives a space some focus and peace in a cluttered life. Here are 10 ways that you can style statement art in your own home.

You know that large abstract piece you’ve been hanging on to? Put it in your dining room. Trust me, an interesting piece of art or picture or object is going to start conversation better than the weather or politics. (via Desire To Inspire)

Your bedroom is supposed to be a place of relaxation and rejuvenation which is why you have to be extra careful in choosing your wall decor. Obviously one statement piece in cool colors is going to spur you onto that relaxation goal better than a wall full of frames and quotes and photos and miscellany. (via House of Jade Interiors)

The kid spaces of your home are also places you want to consider your art carefully. An empty wall in a child’s room or the playroom is an opportunity to be a help if you let it. Opt for a map or an alphabet print or a picture of different kinds of butterflies to infuse their play time with education as well. (via BHG)

Don’t forget the bathroom! Your bathroom is the perfect place to hang an inspiring quote that will encourage you to seize the day while you brush your teeth each morning. You can even make it yourself if you have those calligraphy skills we all envy. (via My Fabuless Life)

Sometimes, statement art goes best with a little help from friends. Putting two or three large similar pieces side by side can take up the large empty space that’s been befuddling you. Just keep the colors and shapes the same and you won’t even notice the wall space in between. (via Rue)

Statement art doesn’t have to be a framed picture or a canvas. Think outside the box by hanging large objects in place of a square. A fan, a sombrero, a large round basket, any large object you can attach to the wall will become an art piece. (via Homestead Seattle)
