For many years people have been using wall paintings to decorate their interior areas. In the past, having a wall painting was an advantage of rich people and those who had blue blood running in their veins. Today, the case in not the same. Many people with lower income can afford buying wall paintings and place them in their living room, dining room, entry way or bedroom. And since we believe that this type of home upgrade is great, we’ve tried to collect some truly inspirational modern, contemporary, abstract examples, as well as some marvelous classic and traditional masterpieces like this breathtaking Alexander The Great painting.
Before jumping to the images, let”s find what are the essentials for placing a wall painting in your interior.
Wall paintings where’s their place?
Having a modern, contemporary or abstract wall painting requires some simple, yet very important things that every homeowner should have in mind.
The perfect placement is neither very high above the eye level, nor below it. The painting should be fixed at a perfect eye level so that it can easily be observed when standing in front of it. Have in mind the average height of men which is something between 5 and 6 feet.
Mind the surrounding decorations or wall accents. And since we are talking about modern art, you can blend your painting with the other wall accents that you have. Of course, a single painting on a wall is a stylish solution also. The rule is as following: If you want the painting to be a single and only element forget about additional wall details. If you want the observer to be able to explore the entire accent set and find the painting, thus surprising himself, then blend it with other decorative items.
For the classic and famous masterpieces, there is no doubt that they should be the only attention grabber on the wall. Place the painting at eye level and that’s it. For best results you should have a monocolored wall with hues that will allow the painting colors stand out, so that every observer will be able to experience the beauty and brilliance of the decorative piece of art.
Now, let’s enjoy together this inspiring, creative and classy collection of wall paintings.
