Wall Pieces – ARTwork for Every Home

A great way of ensuring warmth and a unique flow to your living area, is using a wall piece as the focal point. I am a big believer in a wall piece being a piece of art – something to be admired, talked about, and a timeless edition to your home.

When choosing a wall piece, please remember the following tips:

Size matters

Before you place anything in the room, do some measuring to figure out where the biggest pieces can fit — and whether you can then arrange the smaller pieces/additional furniture around them. Think of your living room as a jigsaw puzzle — you just have to figure out where all the pieces will fit. If you need a visual reference, take a moment to sketch out your ideas on paper.

Create a flow

Once you know different possible combinations and arrangements, you can then decide the best one for flow through the room. Take into account the furniture you have in the room already, and choose a wall piece that enhances everything in the room. Look at the colours and materials you already have, and compliment them.

Make it a focal point

Most living rooms have a television or fireplace as the focal point, but I’m a believer in making this wall piece the focal point. Design your room around that element, and then place the furniture, lighting and other decorations around it. By no means do you need to buy new furniture or re-model the room – just use the wall piece as the piece of “art” that everything else works around.

Learn the story behind the wall piece

When researching wall pieces, treat them as works of art – no matter what people spend on art, they always learn the story behind it! So find out the history, the inspiration, who designed it, “the story” behind it….This will allow you to tell a story when you have guests over, or at least justify the purchase with your partner
