Black and white wall art is simply timeless. When you use monochromatic photos to decorate your home, you add an instant touch of sophistication. It’s truly amazing how a photo can change the look and feeling of your home. When it’s time to add your personality into decorating your space, what ideas come to mind? Typically, you begin with your favorite colors. But sometimes, depending on the piece, colorful images take away too much attention. This is when black and white wall art is advantageous.
Black and white wall art easily adapts to its surroundings. It’s the perfect contrast when the walls are painted in a variety of colors. This allows the art to speak but not overtake the entire room. The sense of glamor and style is achieved when adding photos of travel and nature. It gives the space more culture and history. The journey of one’s life can easily be told through the photographs.
Size and scale is very important as well. The bigger the piece, the bigger the statement. One large piece of black and white wall art can be the starting point when arranging the elements within the room. A well balanced home creates peaceful energy. A fun idea is to have a series of photos on the wall. All tying in together and telling a story. Each piece is unique on its own but placed together, it’s like stepping into an art gallery.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT PIECE
When choosing the perfect framing for your black and white photo, simplicity is best. You don’t want to choose a frame that mutes the artwork. A classic black frame with a white mat is perfect. Hanging art can get tricky. You don’t want the piece in angles that are hard to see. By this we mean that the viewer should see the piece with admiration. It should be placed in a position that is well lit. Natural sunlight is fine but make sure the direct light isn’t harming the artwork.
Lastly, make sure the artwork connects with you. When your guests come over, they should instantly correlate the art with your personality. We may be shy to say it with words, but art speaks the truth. Art is about making the soul happy. It should make the mind think and the heart beat.
Whichever piece of black and white wall art you decide to choose, make sure it makes your soul dance without limits.
Sainte-Marie-de-la-Mer, evening. I have been photographing horses for about four years or so- It never gets old. My heart beats so much faster, my senses become heightened.
