7 METHODS FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO Printing FOR YOUR HOME
Within the last month I arranged an objective to print a few of might work and put it to use to decorate my home. As photography enthusiasts, we invest our time and abilities to develop our skills so that finally we can create works of art! I love to think of images as the icing on the cake. After all the hard work, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your images on the net and displayed as art!
Build A Bear Party Decorations
Smaller artwork is much easier to come by, it's easier to store and it's generally cheaper - so most people have a lot more small stuff, which works great if you have a snug bedroom, or a cramped hallway. But in an expansive room with high ceilings? Not really much.
Think of the wall structure around a piece of art within the art. You want to buy to be a natural expansion of what's there. In case the art's too small, it'll be overcome by the emptiness and go away - and it will give off a timid and helpless vibe. Whether it's too big, it will feel like a huge wearing too-small shorts - also wii look.
For large places, there are several solutions: the foremost is simply looking for much larger works of art. The second is to choose something that's not a framed image (more about that below). And the 3rd is by using several pieces of art in combination with each other, to make a larger piece.
With high ceilings and large wall space, a small piece of artwork above the bed simply won't do.
For example, in my own home, the bedroom (pictured above) has vaulted ceilings that reach 17 feet in height. Just a little dinky framed thing above the foundation simply wasn't going to trim it. I needed something bigger.
Choose a Type of Fine art That Works
Fine art isn't only a framed printing or poster. There are very additional decorative choices you can make. For instance, buying a wall-mounted shelf and adding figurines or vases on it can be considered a great way to decorate a more substantial space using collectibles that you curently have. Or, getting aggregate adornments to take up a larger space could work well, like this Umbra Wallflower established - check out their site for further options.
Other selections include mounting ornamental plates in a row, putting up a large mirror or using decals - that are surprisingly hip and often look good. Check out WallPops!, for some ideas.
When deciding what you would like to put up a wall structure, it's okay to think outside the package. A big framed picture is usually the least interesting (and frequently most expensive) choice. (Though, for my bedroom example, I select three 16"x20" framed prints - quite orthodox.)
Keep Coloring in Mind
What color is the furniture in the room? How about the wall? Think about accent pillows? Each one of these things matter and the fine art (and framing) should match the colouring of the area around it. While this is complicated, the results will be much better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy automatically, but of the same color family and feel.
In my bedroom, for example, I selected three floral prints with softer hues that are brought out by the Wythe Blue of the wall membrane, while the frames are dark solid wood, matching the colour of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral prints are of the same color family as the wall structure and quilt, while the casings match the timber of the headboard.
Don't Forget the Frame
If you choose to hang a graphic, the frame should complement both the d?cor of the room and the coloring and design of the piece itself. You will also need to decide if you would like matting or not - while matting can increase the wall structure size of a smaller piece, be wary of allowing a printing to drown in its border. Generally speaking, smaller portions with very large matting only succeed if the image is simple and noticeable from afar. If someone needs to peer up close at a piece to understand it, extensive matting is a no-no.
As for the frame materials, there are several choices. A wood body with a carved design can have a good shabby-chic feel, particularly if it's been painted. For a straight vintage look, plain dark wood casings work great. If you want a modernist or contemporary vibe, material or black casings are the strategy to use.
Also, if you like vivid d?cor, you shouldn't be scared to go with a bright-colored framework, particularly if the space needs a pop as well as your color choice complements another accent in the space.
Keep Costs Down WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO
If you're choosing a printing, framing can be costly. Keep costs down by only using designs that fit in standard-sized frames, that are much cheaper than custom frames. You can also look for classic frames at garage area and estate sales and then work backward, completing the photo after you have the frame.
Or, one of the features of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox adornment is having less body - that can often be a big cost benefits. There are often creative workarounds. The company Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can structure any poster on two attributes for a small percentage of what traditional framing costs - that's what I decided for my three designs above the bed.
There's also companies that print photos onto canvas or lumber - which don't need a frame whatsoever. If you are a shutterbug and also have some great pics you would like to hang, this may be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you can often find half-off discounts.
For my dining area (pictured above), which also offers high ceilings and mixes right into the living room, I had fashioned two images made and chose a custom size for every single that fit the wall-space properly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the merged pair cost a lower amount than $100 - about the price of getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Choosing the right art for a big space isn't easy - but it can be done invest the the time to essentially plan out what you need. Think through the size, type, color, framing and cost of what you would like. And get motivation from the internet and beyond - sites like Houzz can provide you great ideas, as can home d?cor mags, or even just shopping at home goods stores and discovering the way they have their showrooms set up.
The main element is visualizing the thing you need before you have it and then patiently working toward discovering the right fine art at the right cost for your space. Don't dash things - Rome wasn't built-in a day, and your home will not be decorated per day. But when your home is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
