10 Looks to Hang Above Your Sofa – Sugarlift

10 Looks to Hang Above Your Sofa

Posted by Kristen Clevenson /

 

Is the wall above your couch looking naked? If so, you can try anything from a statement piece to a grouping of sketches to complete your space. The possibilities are endless - but they don’t have to be overwhelming! Use these tasteful styles and hanging options as inspiration to transform your living room.

Not sure you want to tackle it alone? Tell us about your space to get started with a Sugarlift art consultant.

 

1. Bold Black and White

Complement your sleek modern grey scale with a bold black and white instead of a textured neutral. This sophisticated contrast never gets old. Placing the piece across from a window (like the piece above by Thomas Hammer) lets the vibrant city bring in light and color while the room stays crisp and clean.

 

2. Light, Airy Nature Scene

Need a break from the concrete jungle outside? Bring some fresh air into your living room with a nature scene. The best part: you can have lush forests with no mosquitos and sandy beaches without the humidity. Need inspiration? Oregon-based Sugarlift artist Kati Dimoff (whose work is pictured above) can help you bring that chill west coast vibe into your home.

 

3. Color Conscious Pairing

When adding artwork to your space, playing around with colors is always encouraged—just make sure to avoid channeling your inner matchy-matchy Stepford wife. Instead, use art to emphasize shades and textures that highlight deeper tones in your room. Here, the blue side tables, pillow, and book match the painting’s color pallet, but introduce new shades, shapes, and complimentary colors.

 

4. Diptych

Don’t let the bougie art lingo scare you away - a diptych is just a piece of art with two panels. Here, Brooklynite Lizzie Gill’s modern digital collage artworks are perfect for a room with mixed colors and patterns. The two pieces start a conversation with each other. Get ready for when you take them home and the rest of the room joins in!

 

5. Subtle, Textured Neutral

What if your wall is naked but your furniture is amazing? Don’t think your sofa and your painting need to fight it out for attention. A textured neutral will draw your attention, soften your space, and bring in a nice glow that will compliment your interior decor - not offend it!

 

6. Bold, Abstract Statement Piece

Something bold and painterly above the sofa adds energy to a room. In this piece, the colorful and unpredictable lines radiate throughout the room. Pro tip: too big is always better than too small. Because this piece is wider than the couch, the bold design and large frame really demonstrate how a statement piece can elevate your living room to a new level.

 

7. Eye Catcher

A stimulating layered piece will have you completely absorbed. You won’t just be trying to unravel the artist’s process, you’ll be following the washes of color in the piece and noticing how the green background really brings out your hubby’s eyes while he complains about the office.

 

8. Gallery Wall

If a single large piece feels too serious, a gallery wall is the perfect, playful alternative. Because gallery walls feature multiple artworks hung together, they can be fun, creative, and great for those of us with commitment issues. Show off your love for the phases of the moon next to a small work by both your favorite fine artists and the best painters in the world - your kids! If you’re interested in keeping it cohesive, try matching frames (like above) or use similar colors and forms in the pieces themselves. The similarities will draw your eye throughout the collection.

 

9. Optical Illusion

An optical illusion piece not only catches your attention, but keeps your eye as the piece seems to undulate and evolve in front of you! Artists like Bridget Riley, M. C. Escher, and Karan Singh (whose work is pictured above) keep your clean, bright, sophisticate style intact and your mind engaged.

 

10. Vertical Piece

This vertical piece brings character to your room. Here, the figure catches your eye in the center of the piece and the verticality directs your gaze down to the couch. This not only intensifies the relationship between your art and furniture, but also makes your space feel larger. Center a vertical piece above a love seat or L-shaped couch to give the illusion that the only thing that fits up the stairs of your charming walk-up is at least three inches longer than it measures. Capitalize on tall ceilings, embrace those perpendicular lines, and go for it.

    Plein Schoenen Prijzen[/url] Remember to never speed close to when you are searching for commercial real estate property to purchase. You might view a property with a great cost or maybe in an excellent location that has to have some restoration, and you can attempt to go on and purchase it even so, you will end up happier to spend some time and see everything for sale in your budget range. Who knows! You will probably find a house in great shape which is also within a great area at the excellent selling price.

    Stop taking any delivery management the moment you find out that you will be expecting a baby. If it has did not prevent your carrying a child, you may not wish to keep on it while you are expecting. It has many bad health outcomes in the newborn and the quicker you quit, the more effective the probabilities that the baby will probably be okay.
