6 things you should know about choosing art and a £50 giveaway from Posterlounge

This is a sponsored post for Posterlounge. All opinions remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

Although my taste in art has changed considerably over the years, I have always loved how it gives a room instant impact and identity. When it comes to choosing art how do you even begin with so much choice out there? Should you choose one big statement piece or create a feature wall? Should you go for clashing or complimentary colours? Well a lot of it depends on taste and space available, budget also but here is a few tips to finally take the plunge…

  • Look at different art! It might seem obvious but until you know exactly what’s out there you won’t know what your options are. Posterlounge has over 200,000 images to look at but don’t panic they have all been sorted into art style so whether you like photography or paintings for example, subjects so maybe you love flowers or calligraphy, rooms and finally artists. Posterlounge features the likes of conceptual artist James Popsys, Paul Fuentes if you love pastels, Urban photo designer Melanie Viola, The amazing Loui Jover and many many more to discover.

  • Go big or go home, even in small rooms oversized art is a big favourite of mine! It is especially important in rooms where you have no focal point (and no the TV does not count as a focal point!)

  • Keep it low, the lower it is the more impact it will have. eye level or lower.
  • Don’t hang it, lean it. It looks cool, casual, less imposing and perfect for those of you who are renting properties and afraid to make holes in the wall!
  • Mix it up, it is easy with Posterlounge, you choose the image then you choose the material, so canvas or poster or wood for example then you choose the size you need! Most images are available from 30x20cms right up to 130x90cms!
  • Create a gallery wall, if you are choosing smaller size prints then group them together they will have much more impact than one picture dotted here and there.

  • Love the posterlounge… the colours, contrast and wide selection supports you to find a suble or dramatic statement piece.
    Adore the nepal posters which illuminate culture.
    Would love to Find a home for a poster in my house 🙌🏼🙏🏼

  • Hi kate… ohh there is to much to choose from on poster lounge..
    So i have two places right now laking art. The dinning room chimey breast and a wall in coopers bedroom
    If i went for coopers room i would go for either the agave plant against the colourful wall poster or baboon ornamental… and for the dinning room either black lines on white or abstract brish strokes. Something like thaylt 🙂 fingers crossed x

  • Just in the process of updating my baby boy’s room, the theme is monochrome- just saying! Deffo needs more art in there as it’s a big space and currently has no focal point.

  • Hi Kate! My hallway needs a really, really striking piece of art – I was going to say f*** off piece of art but I guess that isn’t quite the message for a hallway (maybe more of a sandwich board thing to pop on when guests have outstayed their welcome?). At the moment it is just a bland space with a couple of small pieces but it needs an injection of character – this could be the opportunity to do it!

  • Hope I’m not too late ? I have a frame 70x100cm that’s crying out for a print but it’s so difficult to fine something in this size, I’m painting the wall Hauge Blue and thinking about flamingos
