Wall Decoration Ideas With Paper
7 TRICKS FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO PRINT FOR YOUR HOME
Over the past month I establish an objective to print a few of might work and make use of it to enhance my home. As photography enthusiasts, we make investments our time and talents to develop our skills so that finally we can create works of art! I love to think of designs as the icing on the wedding cake. After all of the hard work, there's nothing more worthwhile than discovering your images on the net and shown as art!
Wall Decoration Ideas With Paper
Smaller artwork is much easier to come by, it's better to store and it's generally cheaper - so most people have far 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 about the wall around a piece of art within the art. You want to buy to be a natural expansion of what's there. When the art's too small, it'll be stressed by the emptiness and disappear - and it'll give off a timid and helpless vibe. Whether it's too big, it'll feel like a huge wearing too-small trousers - also not a good look.
For large spaces, there are several solutions: the foremost is simply looking for bigger pieces of art. The second is to choose something that isn't a framed image (more about this below). And the third is to use several works of art in combination with one another, to make a larger piece.
With high ceilings and large surfaces, a small piece of artwork above the foundation simply won't do.
As an example, in my own home, the bed room (pictured above) has vaulted ceilings that reach 17 foot in height. Just a little dinky framed thing above the bed simply wasn't heading to minimize it. I needed something bigger.
Choose a Kind of Art work That Works
Art work isn't simply a framed printing or poster. There are quite a few other decorative choices you can make. For example, buying a wall-mounted shelf and placing figurines or vases onto it can be a smart way to decorate a larger 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 options include mounting attractive plates in a row, adding a large reflection or using decals - which are surprisingly hip and frequently look good. Check out WallPops!, for a few ideas.
When deciding what you would like to put on a wall membrane, it's okay to think outside the box. A large framed picture is usually the least interesting (and often priciest) choice. (Though, for my bedroom example, I select three 16"x20" framed designs - reasonably orthodox.)
Keep Coloring in Mind
What color is the furniture in the area? How about the wall? How about accent pillows? Each one of these things matter and the skill (and framing) should match the colouring of the space around it. While this is difficult, the results will be far better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy necessarily, but of the same color family and feel.
In my bedroom, for example, I select three floral images with softer hues that are presented by the Wythe Blue of the wall, while the casings are dark timber, matching the colour of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral designs are of the same color family as the wall structure and quilt, while the casings match the timber of the headboard.
REMEMBER the Frame
If you choose to hang an image, the body 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 boost the wall membrane size of a smaller piece, be wary of allowing a print to drown in its boundary. In most cases, smaller bits with large matting only succeed if the image is very simple and noticeable from afar. If someone must peer close up at a bit to understand it, considerable matting is a no-no.
As for the frame materials, there are many choices. A wood frame with a carved design can have a nice shabby-chic feel, especially if it's been decorated. For a direct vintage look, simply dark wood casings work great. If you need a modernist or contemporary vibe, steel or black frames are the strategy to use.
Also, if you like vivid d?cor, avoid being worried to go with a bright-colored framework, particularly if the room requires a pop as well as your color choice matches another accent in the area.
LOWER COSTS WHERE YOU ARE ABLE TO
If you're choosing a print out, framing can be expensive. Lower costs by only using images that easily fit into standard-sized frames, that happen to be significantly cheaper than custom structures. You can even look for vintage frames at storage area and property sales and then work backward, filling in the photo once you've the frame.
Or, one of the benefits of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox design is the lack of framework - that can frequently be a big cost savings. There are often creative workarounds. The business Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can figure any poster on two sides for a portion of what traditional framing costs - that's what I decided for my three images above the bed.
There's also companies that printing photos onto canvas or hardwood - which don't desire a frame in any way. If you are a shutterbug and also have some great pics you'd like to hang, this might be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you will often find half-off offers.
For my dining area (pictured above), which also offers high ceilings and blends directly into the living room, I had developed two prints made and chose a custom size for every single that fit the wall-space beautifully. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the blended pair cost less than $100 - about the price of getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Deciding on the best art for a sizable space isn't easy - but it can be done invest the the time to really plan out the thing you need. Think through the size, type, coloring, framing and cost of what you want. And get ideas from the internet and beyond - sites like Houzz can give you great ideas, as can home d?cor publications, or even just shopping at home goods stores and experiencing the way they have their showrooms create.
The key is visualizing the thing you need before you own it and then patiently working toward finding the right art work at the right cost for your space. Don't hurry things - Rome wasn't built-in a day, and your home won't be decorated in a day. But when your home is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
