styling with large prints

I love large prints. Often people don't commit to large prints because 1) They are more expensive than smaller ones or 2) They don't know if they can commit to one statement piece. But if you fall in love with an image and could see it in your home for years to come, try a large print. They make a statement and set a tone in a space that you'll love. See a few ways to style them right here...

styling with large prints

1. Above the couch or over a day bed in living room. A large print is great for a cozy, reading nook. Large prints help to ground a room and can offer either more visual interest or, in this case, help to add calm to a space with a variety of furniture styles.

Items shown: Max Wanger print in Simply Framed frame, vintage rug, Target lamp (past season), Urban Outfitters gold planter, Aelfie side table,Anthropologie mug, Oh Joy x Cloth & Co. daybed, Anthropologie shaggy pillow, Urban Outfitters face pillow, Target white hat, Ban.do purse, Eames hang it all, vintage scarves, HatAttack hat, Gaia purse, J.Crew jacket, vintage chair, Anthropologie tassel pillow (past season).

2. In a play room. A common mistake is choosing an art print that is too small, and large prints are great for a room with a lot of wall space to fill. While not every space on the wall needs to be filled, a large print is a great way to add artwork without making a room (that already has lots of things, like toys) feel too cluttered.

Items shown: Max Wanger print in Simply Framed frame, Aelfie rug, Target pink shag rug, Arro Home square pink pillow, Castle round pink pillow, Arro Home blue pillow (past season), MyNameIsNotDarren arm pillow, Urban Outfitters green storage bins, Pehr Designs bin, The Land of Nod bear, Blabla Kids knit dolls, Target chairs, Miss Joyka unicorn Oh Happy Day alphabet stickers, Target crayon gems,  Oh Joy! for Target ottoman, Roxy Marj round pillow, Monroe Workshop wooden giraffe, Target bookshelf, Indego Africawoven basket, Marley & Alfie horseshoes, Moppet Kids llama (past season), The Container Store yellow box, Mudpuppy puzzle.

3. In a dining room. A large art print is great for a dining room because it fills the majority of the wall space that would be needed as a focal point near the dining table. This is a great place to put a print that has a special connection to you—either a print of a place you've been or artwork that really makes a connection with you in some way. That way, it also serves as a great point of conversation when having guests over for dinner.

Items shown: Max Wanger print Simply Framed frame, Valspar Midnight Fog paint, Target rug, Blu Dot table, Modernica wire chairs, Modernica fiberglass chairs, vintage pitcher, W&P Design pineapple shaker, Ikea blue cups (past season), Anthropologie yellow glasses (past season), Target large succulents, Target single plant, Target flatware, Hedley & Bennett dotty napkins, Ikea plates, Rosanna pineapple dish, CB2 side table (past season), Senegal woven basket, Justina Blakeney large face mirror, Justina Blakeney small face mirror, Justina Blakeney oval mirror.
