The last few years the interior design trend was all about the rise of gallery wall. A huge fan of the trend myself, I created a fun gallery wall design in our last home to help mask our black, boxy TV. It seems as though the gallery wall is no longer number one though. The new trend around? Large art.
Designers are ditching clusters of paintings for one large-scale piece of art. While I don’t think this is the end of the gallery wall, I think the upcoming focal art trend is a refreshing alternative for people who like a little more simplicity and uniformity, or who simply want to make a big visual impact.
My verdict? Love it! To me, it makes an entire home seem richer and classier. I also like the simplicity of it, especially if you find a piece you love. It also is a fun way to tie in some different colors to play off of in each room. That’s not to say I am ditching the gallery wall—I still like those too!
What do you guys think? Team gallery wall or focal art?
