Black and white decor is sophisticated, timeless and striking. Beautiful monochrome art is too. If you want simply stylish yet impactful pieces of artwork then look no further. Living up to our sultry style, we have a new of selection of black and white abstract, portrait, typographic and photographic print that will make your walls sing.
Co-Founder Jane Rockett says that picture walls “create instant impact and communicate personality through displaying a curated collection of artistic treasures”, and these new additions are our most treasured yet.
How perfect are these displays? We’ve chosen to contrast the colours of Spring in our new collection of wall art so you can get this look too. Varied in sizing, style and price (we’ve got all your tastes covered!) each piece of art is as unique as the next.
You need these in your home. If there’s any sure way to create impact and wow yourself and any house guests, these super-charged abstract prints are it. Afterlight and Haze have a raw, industrial look with an amazing 3D quality. The interaction between the blurred effects and the sharp edges enhance depth, adding a truly memorable and magnificent feature to your wall. Artwork like this is the best talking point ever. Be brave – do it!
Our new collection of iconic photographs include Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, Miles Davis and Brigitte Bardot. You can also choose from Clint Eastwood (our favourite) and Farrah Fawcett (in colour). It was love at first sight when we came across them, and you will feel them same on seeing them in your home. The fashion, music and film from the 60’s and 70’s are awe-inspiring, so it makes total sense that you should display the iconic faces on your wall!
“A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.” – Brigitte Bardot
These prints capture the beauty of each star that we all know and admire in gorgeous black and white. The images come unframed, but would look amazing hung in a slim black frame alone or in a set. Personally, we’d use them as part of a striking monochrome photo wall in a hallway or bedroom. Alternatively, if you want a more unique display, try hanging with our Large Antique Style Clips.
Typography is at the heart of design, and with the new Andy Warhol Prints, You Pretty Little Thing Print With Oak Frame or the Oh My Print, the striking fonts and phrases can now be incorporated into your home decor! Add drama and wit to your wall with words and sharp lettering as well as a nod to one of the most famous artists of our time… We love how they pop against a black wall – add leafy greens (as above) for an even more vibrant display.
Before you get the hammers out, lay everything on the floor in front of the wall you want to display them on to make sure you get it exactly how you want it to look.
CANVAS & FABRIC
Tactile art gives a room instant character. Texture adds layers and can connect other aspects of the room together. The Small Palm Tree with Coconuts Wall Hanging reminds us of the faded botanical chart prints from the curled pages of old encyclopedias, and the vintage style it adds to a room is always lovely. Hang in a blank space or as part of a collection with our other graphic canvas prints. If you want to go more bohemian than botanical, the new Handmade Artisan Wall Hangings are woven in a macrame style and will look beautiful hung in your bedroom. Mount on the back of the door for a bit of unexpected detail!
The meticulous geometric pattern paired with the relaxed fringe creates a gentle folksy look – ideal for the laid back summer months ahead.
Just like the canvas options above, to make your picture wall really stand out don’t be afraid to add all kinds of items to your display. Try mixing in mirrors, wall planters and mini display shelves or wall sconces with your objects of curiosity on show!
Don’t shy away from the over sized and unusual – embrace it! Be bold, brave and brilliant. For the ultimate decor inspiration, sign up for our new Spring Summer 16 Catalogue HERE to get the look and see all these beautiful monochrome prints in action.
