An obvious place to begin is with color. One trick of the trade many designers use it to pull an accent color from the rug, window treatments, or upholstery to work into artwork on the walls. In this way, everything in the room is subtly unified, even if you're layering with lots of patterns or experimenting with several different hues at once. Try purple wall art that speaks to the sheer curtains on the windows; violet poppies make this warm shade sing, especially when the floral plaques themselves are placed on an opposite wall.
Need something that will really stand out against your deep charcoal walls? Pick out white wall art featuring textured starfish or even a mermaid perched on a crescent moon. You can also find mirror art wall decor to help lighten the heavy feeling in a dark space. A small mirror radiating crisscrossing lines adorned with clear acrylic gems is just the thing for your foyer. Simply hang it over a console table finished in antique white for a vignette that straddles contemporary cool and traditional poise.
This painting is exactly what I was looking for! The colors are bright and mine has some texture to it, just from the texture of the canvas. I didn't measure the pieces but they look just right (i have other paintings in this size to compare) and they add a lovely, calming feeling in any room (except maybe a bathroom!). Monet is fantastic at making 2D look 3D and this painting definitely pops out where the colors are gathered. The frames are sturdy and easy to hang. My only minor complaint is they were packaged with another painting attached to them and the tape was incredibly wrinkled so they just kind of hung together. The box was so tight I had to cut the sides off just to get the paintings out!

Expand your decorating options to fill empty walls with something other than a picture or painting. Wall art creates strong focal points and dynamic textures, unifying disparate room colors into a cohesive whole. Pieces with straight, clean lines and symmetrical designs work best in homes with modern and minimalist styles. Consider metallic wall art to contrast wood decor and soft fabrics. Wood art offers fresh, organic shapes with eye-catching lines. Choose that material to accentuate rustic living rooms or to bring an outdoor element into an urban-chic space. Wall mirrors reflect existing light and create the illusion of a bigger room. Tealights, votives or electric candles in wall holders provide warm ambiance and are useful in places with limited surface area. For backyard and patio spaces, look for items that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
When I see those pieces of art on the wall, all I can think about is the look of driftwood. These do make for good pieces of art because they can be made into almost anything and it will look good. The bed is covered in a blue paisley style comforter and the headboard is a blue and white upholstery style. Overall, it’s a very homey room and I would be very cozy sleeping in it.
Artwork can make or break the overall look of a room, so it's important to choose the right piece! You've got many factors to consider when choosing your new wall art: should it be silver and gray or vibrant and multicolor? Wooden or metal? Matte or shiny? By taking these options into account—and doing a thorough survey of the other decorations in the space—you're one step closer to finding that pivotal piece!
