STYLING TIPS

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - HOME -

Sis­ters Re­nee McGrath and Natalie Mus­catello say wall art is one of the big­gest styling trends for chil­dren’s room this year and the fu­ture. Pick prints that are fun and playful with re­fresh­ing colours.

Be con­fi­dent with pro­por­tions and en­sure you have spa­tial aware­ness when it comes to se­lect­ing art­work. Se­lect a large print to fea­ture on a large wall — this will en­sure the print doesn’t be­come “lost”. Al­ter­na­tively, se­lect a se­ries of small prints and put them in dif­fer­ent-sized frames.

Take the time to hang art­work cor­rectly. Mark the cen­tre of the paint­ing with a lit­tle faint dot, and en­sure it hangs straight.

If art is the last thing to be cho­sen for the room, draw in­spi­ra­tion from colours al­ready fea­tured in the space (in cush­ions, rugs, cur­tains, throws), then trans­late th­ese into a colour pal­ette for your wall art.

Con­sider your child’s in­ter­est and show­case this. At the end of the day, art is very per­sonal — if it brings a smile, you know you’ve made the right de­ci­sion.
