How to pick wall art that brings you joy

By Amy Wright | Feb 25, 2021

Are you on the hunt for the perfect piece of wall art? With the winter months still upon us, it’s important to brighten up our spaces with uplifting wall art that speaks to us.

But where to start? It can be hard choosing exactly what you want to print when there are so many options! That’s where we come in.

1. Choose the space you want to add wall art to

This is a very important step, and it should be the first thing you consider. The room you choose to hang your new wall art in can help to dictate the colors or patterns that should be incorporated in your print.

Take a look around your home, notice empty walls waiting to be filled or a hallway that could be turned into a focal point. Are there any rooms with wall art that could be rearranged to create new interest or space for something new?

A new piece of wall art can brighten up any room. Whether you’re looking for a funky conversation piece for your living room, a picture of your kids for your home office, or a soft and calming print for your bedroom, your options are endless.

2. Choose your color palette

Take a look at the colors in the room you have decided to hang the wall art in. Then ask yourself these questions:

What colors will complement this room? Do I want a pop of color or something more subtle? What will make me smile every time I look at it?

Do you want a custom print that fits cohesively in your space? Then choose a piece of art that has muted neutral tones or one of the complementary colors in your room.

If you want to incorporate a personal photo we suggest adding a black and white filter to your print for a timeless, well-balanced print.

Maybe it’s bold subject matter and colors that speak to you. Is there an image you love? Is there a color you like? Do you want to incorporate a pop of pink? Creating a new custom piece of wall art is a great way to incorporate your favorite things and colors.

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter if it matches your space or not as long as it’s something you love, brings you joy, and deserves to be hung.

3. Decide whether you want to print a photo or a piece of art

Do you want to print a photo that you have taken? Maybe a family portrait or a picture from your favorite trip. Or, would you prefer to go with a piece of art? Think abstract, realism, or even your kid’s masterpiece.

Whichever direction you hope to go in, take the time to think about exactly what it is you’d like to have printed.
