Your home should be a sanctuary, a place where you can unwind and decompress from the chaos in the outside world. Wall art can completely transform your space and create a soothing and tranquil atmosphere. Here are a few top tips on choosing the right art to make a serene space within your home. To understand what art calms you, take a moment to browse all of the gorgeous pieces featured in our Gallery department.
If you’re choosing a few pieces to add to a space, select them in colours and themes that complement each other. Each piece of wall art should be chosen thoughtfully and work harmoniously when on your wall. You also want to ensure you don’t overwhelm your wall, just a few meaningful pieces that work well together will be enough to create a calming environment.
Anything too bright can be stimulating and energising, for a serene space choose softer colours like greens, blues and natural tones that are known for having calming effects. We associate these colours with nature which is often the place where many people feel tranquil, bringing these colours into your home will replicate those feelings and allow you to comfortably unwind in your own space.
The Harbourside Print with Frame would make an excellent selection if you’re a fan of the seaside, the calming colours will soothe your mind and allow you to relax. Soft earthy tones can also make a space feel serene, the Abstract Circles Framed Art piece is inspired by the beautiful textures found in nature and creates a homely and zen vibe.
Wall art does not just have to be limited to paintings in frames, you can also opt for canvases, wall sculptures, photographs or textured wall hangings. You don’t want to choose anything that’s too bright or bold, stick to the greens, blues and muted earthy tones to create your serene space. Impressionistic landscapes and minimalist art can create a soothing environment.
If drawn to more earthy, natural tones something like the Rooftop Vista Canvas Art could work well in your home. Depicting a cartoon-esque town, this gorgeous canvas makes you feel warm and comforted. If you wanted to add some texture to your space, choosing an item like the Coastal Hanging Star or the Grey Metal Wall Flower Decor would be a great choice.
The wall art you choose to put up has more of an impact on your mood than you think. By hanging up soothing wall art, you create a calm and quiet space in your home.
