10 Rooms in Your Home Elevated with Graphic Art

, , - Ryan - February 12, 2021

Graphic art is taking the world of interior design by storm with its delicate motifs, notably in the guise of undulating silhouettes, well defined yet irregularly shaped colour blocks and contrasting lines. This is a very strong trend for 2021. Here are some ideas to inspire you!

1- A Cheerful Bedroom

This room is perfect for a teenager or even a young couple who do not take themselves too seriously. The simple shapes printed on the comforter and pillow add an optimistic, playful touch.

2- Perfectly Classical Graphic Art

Graphic art can also be sober and classical. Use graphic monochrome patterns for a soft yet enveloping ambiance. A large, framed work of art over a piece of furniture is all you need!

 3- Modern Aztec

Accessories with Aztec motifs are popping up everywhere this year. Its stylistic elements are quite similar to those of graphic art. Fill your interior with Aztec-themed planters, decorative bowls and area rugs!

4- A Show Stopping Living Room

The graphic look fits in perfectly with a colourful living room. By multiplying vibrant accessories, tones and shapes, you can create an atmosphere that is both elegant and punchy.

5- A Well Accessorized Headboard

Don’t know how to decorate your bedroom? Minimalist paintings on a tone-on-tone shelf will do. You don’t need to use graphic art in large quantities to make a design statement.

6- Stimulating Wall Art

The popularity of wallpaper and wall art does not seem to be waning and for good reason: get a stunning look with little effort and expense. We love the way they can be used to delineate an area or enliven a wall, like this small home office.

7-The Return of Naïve Art

There is a strong connection between graphic art and naïve art. This comforter’s patterns are a mixture of both styles. It gives this bedroom that vintage farmhouse feel, making it all the more warm and welcoming, don’t you think?

8- A Single Item is Enough

As mentioned earlier, it is not necessary to plaster a room wall to wall in graphic design-inspired items to achieve the desired mood. A single cushion on a big, welcoming couch will set the tone.

9- A Gallery Wall

Covering an accent wall with framed prints in an eclectic mix of patterns and textures is also very trendy. Especially in the living room! Position them either symmetrically or asymmetrically; both layouts will be beautiful.

10- Not just a pretty face

Faces drawn only in outline, especially those of women, are a favourite subject of graphic artists. The painting in this residence’s entrance – wonderfully paired with a head-shaped ceramic vase – is a perfect example.

Colourful, lively, sensitive and soothing, graphic art will instantly transform any space. Try it in your home!
