Wall Art Arrangements – Inspiration and a Few Design Rules

Wall art arrangements are as manageable as boiling water! Walls are default—none can escape the most significant element of interiors in any kind of space. But one can always put some effort to make it interesting, lively, and artistic.

However, instead of randomly treating the wall, you can give some pre-conceived thoughts to the same before executing them. What are the rules for wall art arrangements? Do we need to follow diverse ideas for the different kinds of size, shape, and placement of walls? How many artworks should I display? What artworks should I select? How important are varying colors in selecting a mural or artwork?

Well, some of these queries might meet generic answers. Read on a few inspirations and design rules to amend some beautiful changes in your homes and offices.

Linear and Traditional

Escaping from the confusion of complex designs, you can keep it linear and traditional. You can hang your old stock of photos or art, which you have always been stacking behind your cupboards and storehouses.

Keeping it simple and easy, you need not be bound to a specific composition or certain logical arrangement. Make sure you match the colors or compose it according to the analogous shades.

Power Pairs all the Way

‘Power pairs’ is about making a statement! Wall art arrangements can follow a strategy of composing in pairs. These pairs could follow several ideas in which duo develops a meaning rather than being a mismatch.

You could match shades, shapes, elements, commodities, and other factors that are present in a particular room. Whatever concept you choose, pair it accordingly, clearly conveying the context.

Just even but Odd

Sometimes a few gaps between infrastructural or décor elements feel weird and bland. Like in the case of areas between lamp and shelf, or between the dining table and sofa or any such irregular gaps, which need a touch of extravagance to lit up the room.

Use this space to vent out your creativity, which you otherwise would have been unable to do in prime areas. You can hang some frames, old paintings, or just paint the wall frenzy. But do it!

Hang on Anything and Everything

Hang on there! Hang on anything does not mean you nail or drill the walls to hang your art pieces. The concept rather talks about creatively reflecting about distinct ideas to hand your stuff. Décor it with some hangers or pull ropes from the ceilings or make some amendments so that you can hang your accessories, decorative items, artworks or any random colorful object that amuses your eyes.

But keep conventional ideas like framing, etc. strictly at bay.

Double Layered

Curated content epitomizes your maturity and sense of aesthetics.

Double layering is one of such ideas that could help you understand these contexts. These ideas project the notion of layering one artwork on another in such a way that it brings up an interesting conversation in the room or condo.

If you act glib, then this arrangement can make you a stock of laughter. So, ideate it well, visualize the conclusion, and then execute.

Mix, Match, and Marry

This is one of the traditional concepts of wall art arrangements. Mix and match is a tricky method to décor the interiors if you do not handle the complementary and hard tonalities of the elements you curate.

But once you know the underlying theme, you are the king of this specific rule. There is nothing great than playing with certain ideas and forms to deliver a quirky appearance to your apartment. Also, the harmony evolves by this cross-race treatment, which is unique and stylish.

Powerful Trio

The powerful trio is an interesting theme, which allows you to handle not only the different genres but also a myriad of styles. But maintain a uniformity to keep it sophisticated and elite. This will also help you maintain the balance, which otherwise could be a difficult task.

Also, if you can play with mix and match theme here, while you double layer or use a linear treatment, it will turn out to be fantastic work. The key is to keep a triad intact.

Power Statement

Wall art arrangements could be extraordinarily amazing if you make it bold.

Boldness comes by the daring as well as eccentric forms and shades of the object, which you plan to décor your space with. For example, large realistic portraits, huge murals and making a grand and powerful statement in the artwork that you compose on your walls.

Linear Desk Spread

This is especially suited for commercial or office spaces that house much stuff from stationery to creative things. Here, you can arrange the racks, stacks, and holders in such a way that your commodities could be easily re-arranged and re-aligned.

Also, the wall above your work desk could be an open canvas for you to go wild in decoration and adornment.

Ground is New Green

Wall art arrangements have had a paradigm shift, over time. In the contemporary scenario, a lot of designers tend to ignore the conventional modes of expression and try to practice something new, which either would have been looked down upon or never thought of.

In the same line, placing the decorative items at the ground or supporting the artwork with the floor is a new method of decor in the present times.

The wall décor has neither been more straightforward nor so difficult. Go ahead experiment, and use these design rules to make it look fabulous!
