Here are the biggest decor trends for 2024.

Trend No.01 – Nature Is Always In Style – A Growing Trend

We’re always been drawn to pieces that take inspiration from nature, encompassing artworks that capture the allure of landscapes, earthy tones, botanicals, or creations fashioned from natural elements and materials. Keeping a visual reference to where something comes from and is made from, even with a wide variety of styles, will drive all the little details in new work for 2024.

Trend No.02 – Cozy and Simple

And this is music to my ears! My continued love of Scandinavian-inspired design incorporating natural textures and natural light shifting from a cool and minimalist wall art aesthetic to a more warm and comforting style, will continue to inspire a variety wall art trends amongst designers. Bare walls, look out!

Traditional styles paired with new looks, modern and fresh, stone textures and leading interior design trends. are

Trend No.03 – Vintage Treasures

Get your duster ready! Buying vintage pieces is the fastest way to creating a home that is full of personality and charm.

We’re going to continue to show you ways to repurpose, upgrade and blend vintage frames to create really interesting wall art for living spaces. 

And if you want some inspiration now, our favourite way to take an old vintage frame and repurpose it to create custom wall art or wall decor is to create a textured fabric mat, pop in a textural art print, and in less than 30 min you’ll have a really great center stage piece for your walls. Here are two tutorials to get you upgrading your wall art immediately! My personal style is for warm, beige fabrics paired with bright and unique gold frames. These also make for great gallery walls and look really classic and stand the test of time.

Trend No.03 – Chocolate Charm

When it comes to the colours interior designers say will lead in 2024, chocolate brown continues to melt our hearts. Why? It’s a colour that will always be grounding, timeless, inviting and balancing. But we’re getting bolder – pairing multiple shades of brown together, dark chocolate wall colours, bold furniture pieces that once were considered dated are now being layered back into our décor. 

And wall art is no different. Hues of brown and beige, fashionably paired with vibrant gold frames, are gracing walls everywhere.

Let’s unlock the world of archival pigment ink and giclee art prints

There are very good art prints and not-so-good art prints. The difference lies in two main factors – archival pigments and paper quality. These two considerations, when paired together in the best way create the most impressive art prints. archival pigment ink boasts solid particles that bring forth vibrant colors, resisting the fading that plagues ordinary dye-based inks. Pretty close to perfect wall art, if you ask me! 

Are Archival Pigment Ink Prints More Expensive?

?Surprisingly, not really! Also known as giclee prints, most print shops will use archival inks to print fine art reproductions and fine art photography. And they’re generally considered to be affordable wall art and really great quality. Thanks to the crystalline structure and solid composition of archival pigment inks, prints created with them can often outlast lifetimes, provided they receive the care they deserve so if they’re just slightly more costly, they’re well worth it!

Here are the reasons why we’re totally smitten with art prints and the awesome collections we’ve whipped up from our original paintings:

SURPRISING DURABILITY

Beyond resisting fading, archival pigment inks form a robust bond with the paper they grace. This combination resists against the effects of warping and moisture over time.

VIBRANT COLOURS THAT EXPAND RANGE

Vibrancy and intense coloration of archival pigment inks are equally noteworthy. Archival pigment ink simplifies this process, enabling the creation of prints that faithfully retain the subtle color balances of the original, often times being even more saturated and rich in colour.

AFFORDABILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY

Wall art prints offer a more budget-friendly option compared to original artworks or alternative wall decorations. This accessibility broadens the audience, enabling more of us to enhance our interior design and decor style with visually appealing pieces without straining their finances.

AFRAID TO COMMIT? WE GOT YOU!

From oversized wall art to mini art with a big impact, prints present a convenient and cost-effective means to alter the ambiance of a space without undergoing extensive renovations. This flexibility allows individuals to switch out prints according to seasons, moods, or evolving tastes, offering a dynamic and adaptable approach to interior decor.

GIFT-WORTHINESS

Wall art prints stand out as thoughtful and customizable gifts for home decor lovers. Gifting art provides us with a way to share meaningful and aesthetically pleasing presents with others and it’s always so unique! 

Which then begs the question, what about canvas wall art?

It’s a personal preference really, and it comes down to the way you want to frame your art, but the following are things to consider when deciding between canvas and paper.

Canvas prints offer you the option to stretch and hang without a picture frame. 

The textural quality of a canvas print is a bit different than paper. Canvas will have that rough canvas quality to the print while paper prints tend to be a bit softer in texture and style. 

Generally, canvas prints are a bit more expensive than paper prints. 

Fine details won’t be as visible on canvas as they will be on paper, largely because of the surface quality of each.

Selecting a series of art prints for the perfect gallery wall

Curating a gallery wall can feel overwhelming, if you’re not comfortable with décor decisions or spatial requirements. There are a few things you can do to make this easier. Here are our recommendations for selecting wall art in groupings:

  1. Theme or Style: Decide on a theme or style that will tie the prints together. This could be a specific color palette, a common subject matter, a particular art movement, or even a personal theme that resonates with you.
  2. Consider the Space: Take into account the size and layout of the wall where you plan to create the gallery. Think about the overall arrangement, whether you want a symmetrical or asymmetrical display, and how the prints will interact with the surrounding space.
  3. Mix and Match: Embrace variety. Mix different types of prints—photographs, illustrations, abstract art, and typography. Diversity can add interest and keep the gallery wall visually dynamic. Using one component that ties them all together – frames, or spacing, hues, style… But, in general feel free to explore
  4. Color Palette: Stick to a cohesive color palette to ensure that the prints complement each other. This doesn’t mean they all have to be in the same color, but having a unifying color scheme can tie the gallery wall together.
  5. Frame Consistency: While the prints themselves can vary, maintaining consistency in the framing can provide a unified look. Consider using frames in the same color or style for a cohesive appearance.
  6. Balance and Symmetry: Achieve balance in your gallery wall. This doesn’t necessarily mean symmetry, but rather a sense of equilibrium. Experiment with different arrangements until you find a layout that feels visually pleasing.
  7. Focus Piece: Consider including a focal point or a larger print that draws attention. This can anchor the gallery wall and serve as a central element around which other prints revolve.
  8. Personal Touch: Infuse a personal touch by incorporating prints that hold sentimental value or reflect your interests and personality. This can make the gallery wall more meaningful to you and your visitors.
  9. Consider Different Sizes: Incorporate a mix of print sizes to add visual interest. Experiment with different proportions and orientations to create a dynamic and visually appealing arrangement.
  10. Test the Layout: Before committing to a final arrangement, lay out the prints on the floor to experiment with different combinations. This allows you to visualize how the prints will interact with each other before hanging them on the wall.
  11. Spacing: Pay attention to the spacing between prints. Consistent spacing helps maintain a clean and organized appearance. You can use tools like paper templates or painter’s tape to plan the layout before hanging.
  12. Be Flexible: Don’t be afraid to switch things around or add new prints over time. A gallery wall is a flexible and evolving display that can change as your taste or art collection grows. It’s also completely acceptable to go in and break the rules. Mixing portraits, sketches, landscapes and florals all together is completely fine as long as you keep one element in common; either the spacing, or the colours, frames, style, size… We love to mix and match frames and wall art from different styles to create a very personal feel to the wall.
