AS SEEN ON INSTAGRAM: Home is Where the Art is


Art is a great way to instantly transform a space. Whether through original art works, prints, or even creating your own unique pieces, hanging something new can change the mood of a room, create a new focal point or act as the finishing touch to an interior design scheme. This month, we’ve picked out some of our favourite Instagram posts showing how you’ve been incorporating art works into your homes.

Go big and go home

The gallery wall of @insideoutnumber20’s living area creates a wow-factor focal point. A dark background makes the bold prints and bright colours pop, while introducing plants, magazine racks and picture shelves softens the look to create a more casual and homely vibe. We love the combination of bright colours, typefaces and graphics that ties the pieces together without looking contrived.

Triptych tricks

Above the sofa is a perfect spot for a triptych – three coordinating art works hung together. Here, the colours of the art tie the room together, linking the cool greys of the sofa, flooring and walls together, while the dark frames and elements of black coordinate with the accent cushions and curtains. Combined, this creates a cool, calm and collected feel, making for a living room that offers the perfect place to relax, unwind and destress.

Creative confidence

In the hallway of their home, @countrysidedunham29 have unleashed their own creativity. Large abstract canvasses create instant impact, while paintwork that weaves around the frames adds additional depth and creates a made-to-measure feel. The colours coordinate with the décor and lift the space by introducing brighter yellows, oranges and greens.
