After moving into the new space
The biggest gain? Do not give yourself too much pressure. "People are worried about getting a haircut, but the hair will grow back. It's not exactly the same," Huang said, "but there are some similarities in hanging art. It doesn't have to be intimidating, because fixing mistakes or changing things is quite easy in the future. Nail holes are easy, and no matter what color your walls are painted, you can continue to apply additional paint."
"The interesting thing about owning art is that if it is good art and something you love and pride yourself in, it says it all," she continued. "Hang it where you will see and appreciate it, but you don't have to emphasize that it is completely correct. In fact, I think it looks better when people are not picky, and it is not completely correct!" This seems to work, yes Bar? Learn how to get started below.
"The first thing to do is to consider what kind of methods are meaningful to you. This is related to three main factors: 1) Temperament. According to your personality, what is most interesting to you? Do you like to find things you like? Buy it? Do you want to find the art you are really interested in? Or do you want to do it as efficiently as possible? 2) Time. How much time do you have? Do you think you need to fill up your wall right away? Or you Can you take a moment to search for it? 3) Intention. You may have an artwork you like, but it is actually too small for your big wall. Place it on the wall correctly, if you can put things In the rest of the room inside, even if your goal is to buy more art to fill the wall space more proportionally, you can intentionally make it look that way.
“As for me, whether it’s art, clothing or furniture, over time, I’ve always been an organic purchaser, only buying when I find something really related to it. I never feel the pressure of time to come. Decorate my home because I didn’t see the ultimate goal, but evolved over time. Sometimes I just want to hang a piece of work on the wall, so I hang it directly on the fireplace in the center of the room, and other The walls are blank. I accept to create that kind of focus in the room. As I acquire more art and objects, this evolves over time, so I fill my walls in an organic way. " -yellow
“I use wallpaper to create a focal point in the living space—whether it’s a feature wall or a small, dark room—that requires an eye-catching look. I narrow the design choices by drawing inspiration from existing elements. Range, for example, a favorite artwork, and then use its color palette as a guide. I try to avoid fashionable wallpaper designs and make my choices based on timeless mixed styles. I like to use vintage frames to install new art Goods. Old wooden frames have a unique personality, and buying a new, complex, and complicated frame can be expensive. When we visit flea markets such as Ardingly and Kempton, we purchase frames. In addition, if the frame is larger than the artwork Much, you can always use the stand to your advantage. I like to use the linen-wrapped mount."-Ashby
"The first thing to know is that when you compare the works of artists in the same medium, size and price are usually proportional, but when you look at different artists and media, there is no straight-line algorithm that connects size and price. So you can find large and reasonably priced works of art. If you are open to a range of artists, you can find great works of art that are large and may still be within your budget. If you are interested in works on paper, you can also There are more options, whether they are paintings, collages or prints. Of course, you need to make sure to frame them (if they are not yet framed), which will increase some costs. However, if you compare the works on canvas to the same artist’s paper The upper frame works, the latter is usually more affordable per square inch."-Huang
"If you have a small budget, buying framed prints in various sizes from a gallery or museum gift shop is a smart way to purchase art in an affordable way. I like the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery, or Reunion des Musees Nationaux Grand Palais" online shop. I often buy prints by my favorite artists at the end of the exhibitions I visit, because I only want to take a small part of it home, which is impossible with Auerbach, Picasso or Matisse! "-Ashby
"Consider mixing the art on the wall with other objects you might collect. For example, on my wall, I hung a Marcel Dzama watercolor painting next to a Seletti dinner plate. This is their collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan. Although it It may not be art. It also has a place on the wall. It can help me fill the space. You can also hang a floating bookshelf on which you can place artworks, books and other objects."-Huang
"Mirrors are an affordable product that can be ordered by size and help make the room feel larger. Small wall-mounted mirrors can’t make the most of the space, so if your room is tight, please use a large mirror when possible Down. This seems counterintuitive, but in a small space, I often feel that boldness is much better than the relentless pursuit of a "light and airy" appearance. Embrace the intimacy of the room by introducing statement art and painting the walls. Paint colors can create atmosphere It is also one of the cheapest ways to change the feeling of space.
"An equally effective but little-known option is to use soft wall art, such as textiles and tapestries. Soft wall art helps make the space feel intimate, comfortable, warm and friendly. On a more practical level, they can help and Acoustics and changing the rhythm of the material palette soften the envelope. I think wall hangings are another art form—they have a personality and attract people when they enter the room. I like to change the rhythm between painting, photography, and painting. Sculptures and tapestries."-Ashby
"In all aspects of my life, I base my connection with the item (assuming it is within my budget!) rather than trying to find something that meets specific criteria, although the latter may be a legal form for others Way. For me, waiting for me to find something that makes me feel that excited, this is a more meaningful way. When I can’t stop thinking, I know that I should buy it. I think if this It's your way of buying, so inevitably, your art will match your space, because your space will be filled with other things that resonate with you... and these things are likely to have a relevant aesthetic."-Huang
"When creating this style of wall, people usually want to achieve something interesting, curious, sensitive, considerate, but not too precious. I think you can start to express something about yourself with those things hanging on the wall , Even before it reaches the density you are looking for. This is especially true if you buy something you like. From the first few pieces to hang together, as you accumulate more artworks and items you care about, you can be organic Add them carefully and it will look great. Some of the most successful gallery walls I have seen have not been fully furnished, and they are not "perfectly" spaced apart. Also, if you have art that you like, why not just go straight Hang it up so you can enjoy it while continuing to collect the works needed to realize the final vision?
"People are very concerned about the physical location of artworks within the gallery walls, but I think they should think more about the ways in which different artworks interact and have more fun from it. You can juxtapose interesting colors or themes. Together you think side by side and thought-provoking. Or you can have a whole wall, just your portrait collection. But don't let the possibilities overwhelm you. Even if you hang it at will, the result is still beautiful and interesting."-Huang
"There are no hard and fast rules here, but the trick to the gallery wall is to make it feel like it just happened, even if you plan every element of it seriously. This effect has less to do with the number of works, and more to How they are hung. Strive for a certain degree of asymmetry. For example, if you have four works of the same size, you might want to try placing one in the middle, stacking two on one side, and placing the other on the other Side. It will feel slightly off center, but still balanced in some way, which is what you are looking for.
