Is oversized art taking the place of smaller groupings or gallery walls? Check out this wall decor look that seems to be gaining popularity.
With our living room decorating project fresh on my mind, I can’t help but look for new and interesting ways to accessorize our space. In particular, I’m talking about art.
For years, it’s been all about gallery walls for me. I’ve been drawn to well-placed groupings, especially when it’s an eclectic mix of frames, canvases and objet d’art.
Lately, however, I’m noticing a return to simplified spaces. Where it took many pieces grouped together to achieve the right balance and scale, say over a sofa, I’m now seeing one oversized piece take its place. It’s a pared back look that’s a little different than what we’ve been seeing, but I’m definitely ready to make the switch.
In our living room, there isn’t enough room to place one large art piece over the sofa because of a window and opening, so I’ll have to consider other possible areas. Perhaps the adjoining hallway with a console table below is a good option.
Another gorgeous option is one large art piece over the fireplace mantel.
