Part of making a house a home for me has been adding art to my walls. There are SO many print options out there (which I love), but I also love adding items that have additional dimension and texture. Here are some ways I’ve put other types of artwork into my home so you can be inspired for your own…
Custom Yarn Art Installation by Kate Crowley-Gilbert from our living room! (Or DIY your own!) A piece like this creates a focal point in the room while also giving the option for movement and texture. Anything with fabric or textiles does well when it can be placed higher up and not in a high traffic area (no one wants their kids rubbing their hands all over a custom textile art piece!).
This Wood Knot by Katie Gong in our blue guest bedroom makes for a great complement to the print beside it. I needed something above the high headboard but wanted to break away from the rectangular shapes and add something in that felt more organic. This piece with it’s shape and natural material was perfect!
This textured art piece series by Élan Byrd from our dining room offers a framed piece with dimension. I love that it has movement, texture, and complements the wallpaper. When adding in art that is a standard size, consider adding variation by having two different pieces of art by the same artist side by side.
This Gem Mirror in Peach by Sukrachand in my studio entryway was added for a quick “mirror check” before heading out the door but also serves as an installation because of it’s unique shape and size.
You an also think outside the frame by Framing Non-Prints (like scarves, purses, etc.). This is a fun way to display pieces you love that also need some sort of protection with a frame.
I have one of these wall hangings by Emily Vanhoff in our entryway, and I love the quilted texture, the amazing color options, and the organic shape!
Adding art, prints, sculptures, textiles or any other creative piece to your walls and to your space in general really adds warmth and welcoming to your home. It allows your guests to see all the different facets of your personality and also create a great starting point for conversion with new friends and acquaintances. Art just has a way of bringing people together, and I love that about it.
ugh that mirror is GORGEOUS! love the knot wall sculptural piece too – for me art is better if it’s quirkier!!
yes agreed! thanks Amanda!
