How to Style Artwork Throughout the Home

Adding personality to every space

Artwork adds a hint of personality to any space, and we add it in nearly every room.  

Whether adding color, texture, or expression, the right artwork piece can bring an entire look to life.  

Mixing up how you style your art pieces can bring interest and contrast between stacking, leaning, and hanging it in pairs; here are five ways to style artwork throughout the home:

No. 1: Stacking it together 

Stacking artwork in pairs is great way to create a vignette and highlight a piece of furniture or empty wall that needs a little love. When stacking artwork, we typically use one similar element — size, frame type or style, to make the pieces feel cohesive.

No. 2: Leaning it 

Leaning artwork is a good alternative to hanging it in spaces where you don’t have wall space for hanging or simply want to create a different look. Hang artwork in the kitchen, in the laundry room, or over furniture.

No. 3: Hanging it alone 

Of course, hanging artwork alone can highlight a large or favorite piece to fill up an empty wall space or bring character to a vignette.

No. 4: Styled in n built-ins 

Styling artwork in built-ins is a great way to fill up the space and add tone and dimension. While we typically lean artwork in built-ins, hanging pieces on or between shelves can add an unexpected element, too!

No. 5: Layered and leaned 

Layering more than one piece of artwork can bring an eclectic and lived-in feeling to a space. Whether styled above a console table in the living space or on a fireplace mantel, layered artwork can add a unique perspective.
