How to choose the right wall art is actually quite a challenge and if you get it wrong there will be a whole focal point of wrong.....
(I know this is about art but check out that fireplace!)
Its not easy if it doesn't come naturally and having a few tips can make your search a little easier
Have in mind your decorating style.....
Modern, Retro, Traditional or maybe Minimalist, this will help you narrow down the look of the art you are after
Make sure its suitable for the room its going in.....You can see above there is food in the dining room and a landscape in the living room
The Mood will also be translated, such as calm, vibrant, fun or formal.
I love the fun print above
For me the most important thing to consider is size.
If you have a country or traditional style you will probably need to compliment larger furniture items and chunky finishes, so a large piece of art or a series of smaller ones to fill the space will be beneficial.
For a minimal or modern style interior you will probably be heading toward a large scale piece that may consist of canvas, photography or perspex.
Personally I like these sort of abstract pieces below for a modern contemporary feel.
This is one is by the lovely Lona de Anna and can be purchased through her

The best tip of all is to find some wall safe tape and on the walls you are looking to fill, create some outlines and then measure this way you will have an idea of the minimum size you can go and maximum size.
You should also even if using 1 or multiple pieces to fill the space consider the size and orientation of your wall. If its a panoramic wall, find a panoramic shaped piece it its a portrait style wall( tall and narrow) look for a portrait piece
So with your style in mind have a list of rooms with sizes and you should be able to head out searching.
Do you have any large scale art hanging I would love to see it and share.
