Top Interior Wall Art Trends

All you budding interior designers will know that the trends within our homes change just as fast as the fashion on the high street.

Last season it was all about having one brightly decorated wall, which was the main focal point in any room, as well as a mix of different colours, textures and fabrics taking on traditional styles such as rustic and industrial themes. There was also trends that incorporated meaningful accessories such as; portraits, paintings and ceramic pieces that cluttered our walls.

However, it’s out with the old and in with the new, and this season boasts simplistic styling with minimalistic pieces, that’ll not only suit most decor themes, but will also incorporate your personality into your home.

Check out the selection of new interior wall art trends that we’ve put together, that’ll soon be donning the walls of every home.

Quote Wall Stickers

What started as a popular trend on photography apps such as Instagram and Pinterest, has now become a popular choice to showcase on the walls of our homes. These wall stickers are a great way to add something different to your home, that’s not too over-bearing, or in-your-face, and will incorporate a little of your personality.

Whether it’s in your bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, living room or even your walk-in wardrobe, with the extensive range online and in stores, you’re bound to find the perfect one that suits you. Plus, this type of wall trend is easily applied and easily removed, so you can change between your favourite ‘liked’ and ‘pinned’ quotes as often as you fancy.

Mirrors

You’ll see in a lot of homes people are now replacing photos and art with mirrors. Not only can adding a mirror to your wall update the decor instantly and add a touch of glamour, but because mirrors reflect light it will make the room appear brighter and more spacious.

The beauty about this trend is you can’t go wrong with what mirror you choose, because most fit all decor themes. However, to get your room to its full potential we recommend a mirror without a border, so the glass runs all the way to the edges.

Canvas Prints

It’s out with thick, dark picture frames and in with minimalistic canvas, that showcase every inch of your photo. Whether you have one image stretched across three canvas, or have one of your favourite photos blown-up onto a large canvas, with this type of wall trend you’ll create the illusion of more space within your home. We've made choosing the ideal canvas for your room so simple. All you need to do is upload the image you want here and we'll do the rest!

Wall Art

This season it’s about branching out beyond framed pictures and prints. Sculptural pieces are not only more interesting, but add dimension to your walls. Natural materials and textures are quite popular such as; metals and woods. If you’re looking for a unique focal point and conversation topic, then this is the trend for you.

So, you want to sell your wall art?

Here at Parrot Print we have a wide range of customers. We set up the business as photographers, who hadn’t come across a product that fitted what we ourselves required, but many of the people who buy from us purchase personalised canvas prints to give as gifts for friends and family.

We also work with art professionals, those who create canvas wall art to sell for profit and if you’re considering making the step into selling your own canvas print creations, this post has a few ideas to help get you started.

Get your canvas prints seen

There are many routes into selling art and not all will be suited to your particular niche or aims. But whatever path you choose, if you want to establish yourself as an artist you’ll need to get your works seen and the traditional way of doing this is through exhibiting. Getting involved in your local art scene will help you establish where display opportunities may lie but there’s also scope to set up your own show.

 

The Guardian published an article about holding your own open house festival, which has some good pointers. You may also want to set up your own online portfolio to display your canvas prints and other wall art but be aware this will require promotion too. There are lots of avenues you might pursue to give your online profile a boost; consider using social media to market yourself and your art or raise your online profile through blogging about your creations. 

Selling your works

It can be a little overwhelming to sell your wall art through your own store or website even if you only take commissions through the site and don’t actually accept any sales this way. Esty and Folksy are popular platforms for artists who sell prints, paintings and all sorts of other custom crafty creations. In return for using their readymade platform and benefitting from the marketing they conduct for the sites you will pay listing and selling fees. You might also choose to sell through a site tailored specifically to selling art works where fees may include gallery fees as well as selling fees.

 

Before you head online be sure to explore options in your local area – you might find there are local craft fairs or markets that you could display and sell your work at or perhaps a local craft or art shop would be willing to sell your works in return for a commission fee.  Many restaurants and cafés will display the works of local artists for free in return for the pleasure of having beautiful prints for their walls. Ask around to see if anywhere nearby offers this service and take some of your work in to show them.

Great Ways to use Canvas Wall Art to decorate your home

Have you ever walked into a furniture studio and was immediately blown away by the ambiance of it all? If so, like most luxury lovers, your eyes were most likely trained up and at the walls rather than the furniture itself. Canvas wall art really brings a room together, in fact, it acts as the soul of the room, essentially bringing it to life. It can immediately evoke passion, happiness, comfort and even creativity. However, this feeling of overwhelming art appreciation isn't just subjected to furniture and art studios. In fact, a canvas print can have the same effect on your family and your guests in your home. Here are a few ways to incorporate canvas art into your home decor.

Jazz Up Your Corners

As children, we were often reminded that the corner is a place of boredom and punishment, but it doesn't have to remain this way. Some people use trees, plants, room dividers and even mirrors to mask their corners, but we say inject life into your corners with a large canvas print. The primary colours of your print should complement the colours of your room (use this reference for help) and contain a few pops of added colour to make the room a little more cosy. Instead of hanging this painting on the wall, you can prop it up in the corner directly on the floor or position it on an easel in the corner.

Give Your Accent Wall a Centrepiece

Nothing says accent wall like a beautiful work of art. In fact, the right canvas print can really tie the entire room together. Many people choose to paint their accent wall a different colour from the surrounding walls. In fact, they often paint it a shade or two darker (and in some cases a completed unrelated colour). The problem people are faced with after doing this is trying to tie the colours together in order to make the room look more uniform. A museum-grade canvas print that contains a small amount of the accent wall colour and bit of the colour from surrounding walls can balance the room perfectly. If you really want to bring it all together, try an abstract design that picks up the colours of your furniture and wall colours.

Showcase Your Own Design the Right Way

If you're an artist at heart, or you take pictures of everyday objects in a way that deems them 'artistic', you may want to show them off. If you've ever had the dissatisfaction of having your art copied and printed on photo paper, you've no doubt discovered the poster-like quality of what used to be your work of art. If you really want to show off your images, have them printed on canvas. Canvas injects life into prints, making them seem more realistic, yet mysterious at the same time. To showcase your best creations, or even your family photo, simply have your photos printed on canvas and attach a picture or display light above it before hanging it on the wall. Then voila! A work of art is born.

At Parrot Print Canvas, we believe that every image is deserving of the highest-quality around. Our Award Winning & Museum Archival Grade prints are created using the highest quality materials and state-of-the-art digital processes. This helps us to provide you with the level of artistic excellence that your display deserves. Our skilled craftsmanship has earned us the position of the highest quality canvas printers in the UK.

Combine photography and illustration for creative wall art

Parrot Print was founded by a group of photographers but as members of the Fine Art Trade Guild, we appreciate and work with art of all kinds. Recently we’ve been seeing a lot of work online that combines photography and illustration in interesting ways.

This work by Brazilian artist Lucas Levitan is one such example. Levitan adds his own illustrations to other people’s photographs to create fantastical and fun pieces that we think would look wonderful on walls! If you’d like to see what he’d add to your images, you can invite him to get creative with your photographs by tagging them on Twitter with #iwanttobeinvaded. Of course, you could also have a go at evolving your own images using illustrations; here are just a few ways you can combine illustration and photography to create something new.

Draw your own breath-taking backdrops

Whether you’re creating your own photobooth or want to create some whacky and wonderful baby photographs, illustrating your own backdrops can transform your images in an inexpensive way. Jimmy the Bull Terrier has become an internet sensation thanks to the creative work of his owner Rafael, who adds his own illustrations to photographs of Jimmy to create fantastically quirky prints. This technique also works wonderfully with children – want to turn your little one into a superhero? Draw your own sky and other props to set the scene yourself.

Create a digital collage

You don’t need to take pen to paper to bring artwork and photo imagery together, using the likes of Photoshop and Illustrator you can combine your own sketches or even create watercolour-like textures to frame and contrast with your photography subjects for an ethereal feel. Digital collage allows for so many creative combinations without the mess. And, if you’d like to hang the results on the wall rather than enjoy them on screen, all you need to do is save the files in the correct format and upload here at Parrot Print to transfer to canvas.

Colour between the lines

Have you taken a striking photograph that you’d like to turn into something a little more comic-book like or you think would look good given the Prisma treatment? Rather than adding to your images, why not spend some time taking away? Using digital software, you can turn your images into outlines like those in colouring books and then colour between the lines how you see fit. This guide from digital arts online has some great tips.

Embellish the surface

Do you love the layered look of a collage? We’ve covered layered canvas prints ideas on the blog before, so be sure to check out our layered canvas post for a little inspiration. Whether you’ve chosen to put your photo on canvas or print to paper, the journey of your art needn’t stop there. Why not use other materials to add texture and interest to the surface? Different paints, varnishes and even fabrics can be used to add an illustration aspect to your work. We love the work of this fashion artist who uses nail varnish to enhance drawings and think there’s real potential to combine this technique with photographed images too.

Creating Layered Looks With A Customised Photo Canvas

Feature walls are big news in the world of interiors right now. You might find blocks of bold colour or a single papered wall livening things up in the living room or brightly painted murals in child’s bedrooms; there are lots of ways to create a focal point that brings the theme of a room together. These particular interior techniques can be time consuming and difficult to update, so why not take a shortcut with the help of some customised canvas prints?

Our diptych and triptych canvas prints are very popular choices for people who want to create unique artwork to hang in their home and can make an instant standout feature. However, today we’ll be looking at another way of making one wall the focus of the room by using layered or stacked custom canvas prints.

This post explores the type of wall art you can create by using multiple photo prints together and considers some applications of layered or stacked canvasses, which you’ll hopefully find inspiring.

Stacked Panorama

A personalised panoramic canvas print can be pretty impactful by itself, but think about the effects you can achieve by using multiple pieces. As well as slicing up one view across several different canvas panels, you might consider juxtaposing different scenes or even building images of the same scene taken at different times. Mountain ranges, coastal views and cityscapes all look great presented in this way, which can add a new perspective to your artwork.

Family tree

Layered prints can be educational as well as fun. Think about creating themed stacked canvas prints that work together artistically as well as acting as a learning tool. You might want to follow the advice in our recent flower photography post to help you take a few garden snaps for an inside garden wall, for example. Another eye-catching idea is to create your own family tree by printing portraits onto individual canvas prints. Select which images you want to use and print in a range of sizes to create a sprawling tree on one wall. You might opt to mix up the sizes or use larger images towards the top where they may otherwise be harder to see.

Funny faces

Portrait prints can look quite serious, so why not think about creating something a little more fun by mixing different sections of your family member’s faces? Slice up individual images before uploading and then play around with the positioning of your customised canvasses when they arrive. To make things even more unusual, you could try using face paints and props and letting the kids direct a few shots. The results make a fantastic and less permanent alternative to a painted mural.
