The formula to choosing the right sized artwork

Just a quick tip today!

Ever walked into a room and thought ‘Wow, this space looks amazing”, or flipped through a home magazine and a particular image stops you and take a moment to study it before you flip on thinking “There is no way I can do that…”??

Well I am here today to tell you, you can! And it all comes down to making sure your artwork is sized correctly.

An amazing piece of art will bring a room together and finish it off. Get the sizing right and BAM, it all comes together. Get the sizing wrong, and you’ll be scratching your head wondering what else you can do. So, what is it the magical formula for art?


Yep, remember 2/3 and you will be fine. If you are placing art over your couch, bedhead, hall table etc to ensure it looks correct, your art should be 2/3 the width of the furniture you place it above. This makes the art an interesting focal point of the room.

Keep this in mind for multiple pieces of art as well. 2, 3 or even 4 frames should not be more than 2/3 the width of the furniture below it.

I have recently received (gifted) these gorgeous pieces from Gioia Wall Art. They are by artist Lia Nell. You can see them here and here

If you’re looking for some other recommendations I am utterly obsessed with architectural style photography. Check out this ‘Santorini’ building. Or this abstract daisy.  Plus this aerial beach shot.

There’s lots to choose from!
