Creative Decorating: Making Your Art Stand Out

Sometimes you like your art so much that just hanging it on the wall won’t do. You’re looking for that little something extra to make it stand out.

Here are two simple ideas to get you there:

1. Paint pop.

Make your art a focal point by framing it out, large or small, with paint.

This also works when you have a piece that is just a little too small for the space. Framing the art with paint instantly gives it more presence.

2. Back it up.

Autumn from Design Dump used metal screens to back some photos for a client’s office. It’s a unique and interesting industrial look that would work great as a backdrop for canvas or framed art!

Autumn mounted a client's art work to this metal screen - love the industrial look and it makes the art stand out!

    I agree! She put a lot of thought into making something special for her client that had meaning for them.

    The mesh screen idea is great! I love that it ties back to the client’s business – the screen is a component that this company uses to sift gravel. Sometimes simple things make the best and most meaningful art!
