We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. Whether deciding on the vibrancy of an abstract painting or the depth and dimension of a framed vintage rug, wall art is an element that helps elevate a space, making it personalized to you. Our thoughtfully-curated wall decor is perfect for your home at Lulu and Georgia, bringing elevated style to your everyday spaces.
Unique wall art instantly refreshes a look and brings character to your home, speaking to the personality and interests of the people who live there. It is a decor element that is transitional—and unlike larger, foundational pieces like rugs and furniture, wall art can be easily moved or replaced as your style changes and evolves. A feature art wall has the power to transform completely any room, whether you want to provide a focal point that ties everything together or utilize a unique accent to fill in space. From abstract wall art to an original wall painting, it's essential to understand the fundamental principles of styling these elements for maximum impact.
Not sure what style fits your aesthetic and home best when shopping for wall art? Don't worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below for styling tips and inspiration as you pick out the best wall prints, paintings, and more to purchase for your home.
Choosing Wall Decor for Your Room
Buying a large framed painting or even smaller-scale textile wall art is a big decision. We recommend looking at the room or rooms you want to revitalize. Imagine the different types of wall art in relation to a central theme as you shop. That way, the pieces you choose will be much more likely to seamlessly blend in or create the intended effect of stylishly contrasting your look.
When selecting wall decor for your living room, recognize the size and style of the space. You may be working with a large, open-concept area, a small-space room, or a traditional family room. It may be best to layer in wall art prints or cluster a few pieces to create an art wall in a larger living space. Or, if you have a small-space living room that serves as the center of your home life, you can find one centerpiece to anchor the entire space. We love this 'Beach Umbrella, Parivolia' Print because of the painterly quality and vibrant imagery in an oversized frame.
If you are looking to bring wall art into your bedrooms, identify the look of the space first and ask yourself questions about its use. Do you want to add texture and touch with an artisanal wall hanging or add delicate appeal with a smaller original painting? Abstract wall art can add a bold, exciting tone to an older kid's room that grows with them and that you can adapt to a modern aesthetic in a guest room or home office later.
For transitional spaces like an entryway or hallway, artwork for the walls helps define and elevate that space to be more than functional. Think framed wall art intermingling with personal photography in your foyer. Or for trickier, narrower walls, place a textural piece, like this Studio Nom Lwazi Wall Hanging.
Different Types of Wall Art
Purchasing art for your home adds a signature touch to your aesthetic. From framed wall art to mixed media and sculptural pieces, wall decor lets you mix and match elements to create a space that feels and looks yours distinctly. Embrace the excitement of this process and consider the full range of options available when shopping for your look.
Whether featuring stunning vintage photography, abstract patterns, or reproductions of historical works of art, prints are an eye-catching addition to your space. Complete your purchase with a frame to add a touch of polish to your walls. With its crisp repeating shapes, something like this ‘Serape’ Print can strike a modern balance full of minimalist impact.
Original Wall Paintings
We love adding a wall art painting into a space because it adds dimension and textural impact. Made-to-order pieces, both framed and unframed, brilliantly show off the brushstrokes and craftsmanship behind every piece.
Mixed Media and Sculptural
Beautifully blending materiality and techniques, mixed media, and sculptural pieces create such visual impact for your walls. This 'Silver Waves' Wall Art by Kira Appelhans features an etched design and monochromatic palette to offer an ideal statement piece styled above your bed or sofa.
Whether made of metal, wood, reclaimed fabrics, or upcycled materials, wall hangings provide an effortless and chic look to your space. However subtle, the freedom of movement adds a dynamic touch. Check out our designer pieces from names like Circle & Line to bring unity and balance to your space with on-trend styles.
Textile Wall Art
Crafted from vintage rugs, this limited-edition capsule of framed textile wall art adds warmth, a striking pattern, and (often) rich color to your walls. Plus, they bring a seasoned character to your room with their traditional designs, whether above a console table or sideboard.
Whether you are looking for a large wall art painting for a living area or dining room or a smaller scale piece as part of a vignette or gallery wall, Lulu and Georgia has an extensive range of unique wall art to choose from.
Selecting the Size and Scale of Wall Art
Before purchasing artwork for your walls, think about where you want it to hang. Measure the area first, making sure you have some breathing room away from any furniture—you don't want the art to hang too high or too low on the wall. If you are buying a large print to place over a sofa or a console table, you want it to be a little smaller in scale than the furniture to augment rather than dominate the space. A good rule of thumb is to have the artwork hang about five or six inches above any furniture.
In a smaller area, like a powder bathroom or entryway, wall art can add depth and make a space feel larger. A small print displayed above the toilet or over bath towel hooks offers a touch of personality and character.
In an entryway vignette, you can display artwork scaled to an entryway console stacked with books and a potted plant. Instead of feeling flat, the art creates dimension and movement, instantly opening up the space with inviting appeal.
Create a Gallery Wall
The concept of creating and organizing art into a gallery wall can feel overwhelming. It doesn't have to be. When choosing pieces to hang collectively, be sure to pick framed wall art in varying sizes. There doesn't have to be an overall theme to your gallery wall, but it should look curated and intentional. Don't feel like you have to build your gallery wall in a day. Take your time shopping and keep an eye out for elements that speak specifically to you, letting the collection evolve.
In a gallery wall and a collection in general, try mixing and matching influences for effect. Modern artwork—like a minimalist sketch—can offer an eclectic look to a space filled with more traditional styles and silhouettes. Or try colorful, abstract wall art in a more rustic aesthetic, decorated with natural wood elements. Hand-picked artwork adds a dynamic aspect; it tells a story, making a room feel more authentic.
When laying out your gallery or salon wall, make sure to measure the distance between each piece. There needs to be enough space between the frames to avoid looking too cluttered. The general idea is to have each print be about three to five inches apart on all sides. Lastly, use all your wall space. Don't cluster the artwork into a tiny area when arranging the wall. Feel free to hang art close to the ceiling, which creates perspective and dimension in the room.
Wall Art for Your Home Office or Workspace
Your home office is a space where you want to feel creative and inspired. It shouldn't feel blank, dull, and unimaginative. Conversely, you don't want the room to look chaotic and cluttered. First, choose a color palette that you can draw from, then find engaging and expressive artwork that fits the mood. You want your wall art prints and other pieces to complement and elevate the overall look of your office.
For a simple and minimalist aesthetic, choose a large focal piece (or two smaller pieces of art) that you can hang over your desk or small seating area. A minimalist approach like this allows your office to have personality while still looking clean and fresh.
If you are looking for a cozy, more vintage-inspired style for your workspace wall decor, try artwork in varying sizes. Pick unique frames so the result does not look too rigid and uniform. Stagger them on open shelves or mount them for a scaled gallery wall.
Whichever way you decide to style it, remember that your wall artwork allows you the flexibility to showcase the nuances of your design aesthetic. Loved ones and visitors can then immediately get a sense of who you are by seeing how you have utilized this distinctive layer of decor to build on your home's look.
