Wall Art Décor – Mix and Match Gallery Style

September 6, 2012 / Design Tips

Here at GreenBox Art + Culture, we are all about bringing walls to life. When we get the opportunity to show our contemporary wall art at tradeshows, we pack the walls with custom canvas art – some new, some classic, mixing artists, styles, colors and themes. Know what we always hear? “Your showroom looks beautiful! It’s so colorful and happy!” And we think so, too.

Of course, we’re trying to maximize the stretched canvas art we can show at once, taking up every inch of wall space we have – but it’s also a nice presentation. We receive confirmation over and over from stores that display our products and from customers that enhance their walls with our modern home décor, that large pieces and/or groupings make the most attractive impacts on walls.

We think artwork for the home should be personal and engaging. Why not mix in a beautiful piece of custom canvas art with a grouping of prints collected on international travels, a framed scarf that’s too beautiful to wear, family photos, ornate ceramic tiles, or cherished drawings from your little ones? In our opinion, to add more interest, the more the merrier. Just make sure there is a common theme, be it a repeated color or subject matter in the art, or the same color frames used on all pieces in various sizes. Most of our pieces do come with the option of adding a frame in either warm white, or deep pewter that appears nearly black.

Do you have a series of blue collectibles? Fit Amy Genser’s “Deep Sea Current” in the mix.  Or, if you collect sand dollars and starfish every summer at the beach, surround our “Pelican Post” canvas art by Christopher Ross with your cherished beach gems. Find images of beautiful birds from old books to put in frames, and include Jennifer Kiraly’s “Crown Bird”, Flora Bowley’s “Fly”, and Amy Paul’s “Scarlet” all in a deep pewter frame, within a grouping. Your collection is what will make your grouping personal and beautiful. And it’s been said many times, that if it’s something you love, it will fit in with your décor.
