TREND: Large scale wall art

DECOR TREND: Large scale wall art | My Paradissi

I don't know what’s with me lately but I just have this need to hang big, flashy things on the walls. And I mean big. Really big. Like wall wide big. Like this photo wall mural I used in my latest interior design project. While photo murals are one radical way to dress up a wall (quite often on a budget) , art is whole different story. When I come across interiors with large scale art prints and paintings on the walls I just pause for a moment. And awe. The feeling of being in a place where art rules is truly unexplainable. It’s like having a symphonic orchestra playing for you. Well, a small art print or two can easily be compared with a favorite song you love to listen and sing along but an oversized artwork is indeed like dozens of violins, trumpets and pianos performing the tune of your life right inside your home. Extra large paintings can be a bit pricey to possess but I find buying one is a really great investment for your house and your soul. Even if your furniture are ikea or thrifted, even if you miss that extra armchair or side table to complete your home decoration, a statement art print will steal the show and uplift your home decor just like that. Have a look at the following photos to see what I'm talking about.

  1. For me, this isn't a trend; it's my preferred style. I love the simplicity of it. Instead of having multiple pictures, prints, objects, etc, it's just that one beautiful piece of art that makes a big statement on its own. Love it!

    1. You have a point there Mandy! One piece is usually more powerful than many small ones gathered together in one gallery.

  2. We're still nomadic, but in every home we try to keep our art of photographs simple, which is why I love large wall art. I look forward to settling someday and investing in pieces I love. Your blog is so inspiring. It's one of my favorites.
