Tips: How To Choose A Print For Any Room

While there are no fixed rules to choosing a print, considering a few pointers can help you make your best choice:

Example Entrance: Theme & Color Scheme

The entrance piece welcomes your guests, and sets the mood you want to come home to every day. Choosing a natural theme in a calming color scheme will allow for everyone to unwind as soon as they enter your place.

Example Kitchen: Size of Print & Surroundings

Sometimes a small print is enough to liven up a whole space. For this cosy corner in the country style kitchen I suggest a Black & White Animal Portrait: It references the surrounding country side nicely, while recharging us with its friendliness every time we start or end our day.

Example Bath Room: 4 Elements Theory & Shape of Print

An alternative way of adding meaning through art work is the 4 element theory of life: Water & Air as a theme seem a natural fit for bath rooms and spas - the (almost) square format further adds to the feeling of calm.

Example Living Room: Identity & Storytelling

After the kitchen, the living room is where families and their guests tend to spend the most of their at-home time together. Prints that reflect your families' favourite places, activities, and joint memories create tokens of security, stability, and longing.

Matching tones and materiality further enhance the nurturing atmosphere.

Example Chalet: Cool versus Warm Tones

For this typical Swiss chalet rich in wooden features I suggest prints with cool tones. A thin frame in a dark color further accentuates the play with warm and cool notes.

Harmonizing wall colors and frames with your interior style, while deliberately considering transitions between rooms, eventually total to the piece of art work that is your home.
