5 Ways to Display Art at Home | Affordable Art Fair Singapore | Travelshopa

Adding art to a living space definitely adds class and personality. The good news is it is not as difficult to achieve as it may seem. Perhaps you’re on a mission to start an art collection or you have started gathering ideas on how to create a gallery wall. We believe that a great art collection starts with owning pieces you absolutely love. If you love it, buy it.

Affordable Art Fair is a great place to start an art collection or add to an existing one. Back for it’s seventh Singapore autumn edition, the fair is bound to provide lots of choice in terms of style, size and price range (most pieces range between S$100 and S$15,000, with 75% of the artworks below S$7,500). This edition will host a special area called the Under $1000 Wall to help those with a limited budget.

The forthcoming 3-day fair got us thinking about how to display art at home. Here are some ways we will be exploring with our new pieces.

1.

Frame it. Not only does it complete your artwork; it is totally versatile and draws the eye to the art piece.

2.

All about layers. This tip may be tricky but layering adds depth and character. Add other elements such as books and home decor for variety.

3.

Minimalist or maximalist. The easiest and most common trick in the book, an art collage can be styled both ways. Opt for simple frames and muted palettes for a minimal wall. Experiment with eclectic pieces, bold colours and different sizes if you are taking the maximalist route.

4.

On the floor. The perfect spot to place medium to large-scale art you’ve always fancied but never had sufficient space to display on walls is by resting it again a blank wall.

Prop it up. Lean them against your bookshelf, mantel, cabinet or console table. This adds a lived-in flavour and effortless look to any space.
