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.
