The goal is to be both modern and timeless. For greatest impact, hang your wall art above a large piece of furniture, such as a sofa or loveseat. Your living room should be pleasant, warm, and inviting. A community place should be a mix of your particular preferences and current trends. Don’t be scared to experiment with vibrant patterns as long as you are judicious with your design and avoid clutter in general.

Creating a Living Room

While the living room has always been important, this vital place of comfort is now more valuable than ever. Yoko Chow of Yoko Chow LLC, our design expert, discusses the growing importance of a stylish living area.

Pro Tips for Living Room Design

“The importance of the living room during the pandemic has increased because it is an area dedicated to resting and gathering with family members. Many homeowners have refined their approach to [designing] this room and [investigated] ways to increase the level of comfort. The [ambience of our home] has been increasingly important in our lives since the stay-at-home directive was placed. It is reasonable that, in this unprecedented era, the living room has become a key location for us. With more time to spend in this core room, it is reasonable to examine its functionality and make adjustments.”

“Typography is a subtle approach to boost our thinking and lift our spirits. Art is designed to uplift our hearts, which is especially important given our current global condition. More than ever, we need to be surrounded by positivity. Combine typography with an eye-catching image. Motivational slogans are a subtle approach to generate a joyful, optimistic atmosphere. Energize yourself every day with quote-themed artwork.”

Color Ideas to Consider

Dare to mix dramatic and uplifting colours when it comes to colour. It all comes down to balance. Consider combining vibrant accent colours with bright tones. You are not required to pick only one! Rather than matching everything in your room, use a range of tones. Yoko Chow, a design specialist, elaborates:

Pro Tips for Living Room Design

“A few prominent styles now, such as Boho and modern Mid-century, illustrate the blend of vibrant colours and neutrals. Neutral background colours should help you prioritise the colour you want to shine out or seem as you intended.”

Black Living Room Wall Art

If you opt to furnish in brighter colours, choose a darker director for your wall art. With little effort, black-toned wall art may give your area a modern appeal.

Sizes of Living Room Wall Art

Check out our post on choosing a wall art size for a comprehensive reference to canvas sizes. View a useful excerpt geared toward living spaces below:

Sizing for Living Room Canvas Wall Art

“Your wall art should take roughly 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the amount not covered by mouldings or furniture. Measure the wall’s height and width. Now divide the measurements by 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will receive a variety of canvas print sizes to meet your needs.

For example, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet broad, divide 9 by 0.6 to obtain the low end of the appropriate height range. Then divide 9 by 0.75 to get the upper limit of the optimum height range. Do the same for your 5 foot wide wall. The canvas’s optimal height would be 5.4 feet – 6.75 feet, and its ideal width would be 3 feet – 3.75 feet.

Wall art that will be hung above furniture, such as a fireplace, a bed, or a couch, should be between 2/3 and 3/4 the width of the furniture. Consider the following example to determine the optimum art size over your furniture: Multiply the width of your couch by 0.66 and 0.75. To fit magnificently over the couch, you’ll need a canvas between 3.96 and 4.5 feet wide.”

Shapes for Living Room Wall Art

After you’ve determined your ideal size, evaluate the contour of your potential canvas. When it comes to shape and layout, there are a few key factors to consider. It all comes down to your particular style and your goals for your living space. The traditional single-panel canvas is the first option. Choose a modern two-panel canvas print to create a more contemporary effect. Choose a 3-, 4-, or 5-panel piece for a more multifaceted modern look. Finally, a 7-piece hexagon is ideal for the brave designer.
