How We Style Vintage Art

Finding the perfect artwork for your space is often more daunting than sorting through paint colors and tile patterns. Even at a small scale, artwork makes a big statement. It represents your character and really sets the mood in the home, so you want to make sure you pick out pieces that are just right. We love to decorate with vintage artwork because it's full of rich colors, textures, and charm.

We've rounded up our favorite projects with vintage art and included some pieces we have our eyes on at the end of the post! 

In Kitchen Shelving

Artwork in kitchen shelving feels a bit more unexpected than art on a gallery wall, but in the best way possible!! It helps your shelving come to life, and contrasts beautifully against the rest of the product.

Unframed

You can make an even bolder statement by propping your artwork, unframed, against the wall!

Grouped Together

It's no secret we love artwork in pairs. Experiment with hanging different sizes together, mixing frames, using some unframed, etc. to make a statement!

Coordinating artwork, or pieces that are part of a set really stand out and make your space feel thought-out and curated, without feeling too uniform or boring. We have a helpful blogpost on coordinating pieces of artwork here, if you want to try the look out yourself!

Framed By Itself

If artwork alone is enough to send a message, hang it alone! Let it do all the talking without competing pieces.

In an Easel 

For a cool, studio effect, try vintage artwork in an easel! It keeps with the retro vibe and really makes a visual statement.
