How to Choose the Perfect Wall Art for your Space

by - 06:29:00

There are a few things I love about adding wall art to a space, number one I love how it adds instant colour without painting the wall. I also love that it can convey a feeling and tone for the room. Lastly, probably my favourite thing, I love that I have the option to change out the print down the road (hello mini makeover).  The art in the photo below is a piece called "circles on canvas" from Décors Véronneau a Canadian retailer of various wall art and artificial plants.  I like this piece because it has curves, which adds a sense of calm and happiness to a space plus the colour repeats from my kitchen adding to the harmony in my home overall. These are just a few consideration I make when selecting wall art and below you will find a few more of my tips on how to choose the perfect wall art for your space.

The first thing I would suggested when selecting the perfect wall art for a space is to trust your gut.  If you like something, you will always like it. Chances are you will be looking at this art work for a long time so make sure it's something that you like and that "sparks joy” (yes I’m jumping on the band wagon).

The next suggestion I have for choosing the perfect wall art is to look around your space and try to pull inspiration from the hints of colour existing in your space. For example, I decided on blue because my kitchen just off this space has navy blue cabinets and I loved the repetition. Décors Véronneau has a wide selection of wall art to choose from so you’ll be sure to find something to suit your needs. They have everything from palm leaves, to geometric abstracts, to chevron prints. Plus many of them have free delivery!

Also, if you're thinking about adding new accessories to your space keep your wall art in mind. For example, I decided to add these mint green cascading succulents to my space which pull directly from the print (and are also available at Décors Véronneau). I tried the arrangement on the table but I preferred it on the shelf in the end.

Lastly, measure your space and consider taping the dimensions of your desired print on the wall prior to purchasing. This will help you visualize it and may even convince you to select something larger. As a note, art work should be hung no more that 15 cm above your furniture.
