Popular living room wall art can range extensively, depending on personal taste and personality, price range and the style of your living room. As your living room is a main focus for social gatherings, what you place on your wall can affect the overall tone, both socially as well as in the overall effect of your home. What goes on the living room wall should be something that compliments your other pieces and is something that is to be enjoyed by all. No matter what your style or price range, below are some great options for popular wall art for your living room.
Abstract art has a higher chance of blending in with the already accumulated pieces of the average living room. As what is hung on the wall often sets the tone for the rest of the room, an abstract piece will focus more on the design and aesthetic qualities of the pieces surrounding it rather than an actual theme. One tip is to choose your art piece by the dominant and accent colors that are already in your living room. The Stained Glass Symphony Metal Wall Hanging, available at Metal Wall Art, will help to pull out any red or blue or brighten up a monochromatic or neutral living room. Large in scale, this piece will command attention while the negative space in the piece itself prevents the wall from looking to heavy or overwhelmed and the room itself from appearing too cluttered.
