Wall Décor Tips for Luxury Style
Luxury is the epitome of high-end fashion and design. However, luxury décor isn't just about opulence; it's about sophistication, exclusivity and understated elegance. At Great Big Canvas we have stunning art prints for anyone who wants an elegant touch on a budget. Here are five wall décor tips to bring a luxury feel to your home for less.
1. Start with the Entryway
Set the tone for your space and make a statement with a large piece of art in your entryway. Your entryway is the first impression of your space for guests, so a great piece of art that reflects your personality can really shine. Make sure your entryway is both inviting and functional.
2. Create Symmetry
Design with symmetry in mind using paired pieces of art to make your space look more upscale. Like a piece of art that doesn’t have a matching pair? Order two of the same piece to pair together for a luxury feel. You can also create symmetry around your artwork using furniture and accessories.

3. Add a Frame
Framed art can make an instant statement and change the entire look of your space. Add one of our framing options to give a luxurious feel to your space - we recommend a metallic finish such as our gold or silver floating frames to add eye-catching contrast to your art. For smaller budgets look at repurposing old frames, either ones you already own or from a thrift store. Simply paint your frames, order a high quality art print from us, then add to your frame and hang.
4. Find Your Light
Keep lighting in mind when picking pieces and ensure your lighting is optimal to display your art. Be aware of any cast shadows or glare that could interfere with how your art looks in your space.
For rooms where it is just not possible to access natural light, there are a few tricks you can rely on. Using brighter white bulbs in your light fixtures, to mimic sunlight, can create a more welcoming feel to a darker room. Additionally, large canvas wall art in warm or light neutral tones can open up a space to provide the same organic feeling that natural light brings.
5. Layer Different Textures
Texture adds depth and refinement, so don't be afraid to play them up in your space, from your throw pillows to your wall art. The key to designing a space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional is balance. Layer textures throughout your space for a multi-dimensional and cohesive look. Canvas prints are perfect for adding a natural feel that will never go out of style while sleek framed prints offer modern inspiration with clean lines.
