Does your space lack a focal point? Looking for inspiration for a color scheme? Need to add more depth to a small space? A large-scale art piece could be the perfect solution. Check out these tips and tricks for selecting the right art pieces, and incorporating them in your home interior the right way.

A splash of color

If you love clean, minimalist lines but want to add a punch of color to lift a neutral interior, large canvases such as this pair are a great way to introduce an accent. The red statement armchair and pouf have been chosen to further pull out the warm pinks, oranges, and reds to give this interior some spice.

Your dream view

A great format for a large-scale art piece that really adds your personal touch is a blown-up photo. Think of that special view that takes you back to a great vacation or a favorite place, and use this to add depth and view to even the smallest of spaces.

Tell a story

Large-scale art or photography pieces have the power to add instant impact and make a real statement. With this in mind, experiment, and think about how your art can bring a narrative to the space, tell a story, or add humor.
