6 Oversized Art Pieces That Prove Bigger Can Be Better
It turns out a single piece of high-impact art can be just as stylish as a perfectly curated gallery wall.
Okay, I'll admit it: I've completely failed in my quest to craft my dream gallery wall. For months, I've left my collection of frames hidden under my bed, with no art to fill them, and no plans to actually hang them up any time soon. And to make matters worse, I haven't even decided which room should play host to the gallery wall.
Luckily, my infatuation with gallery walls is actually starting to dwindle. Lately the rooms that catch my eye have one thing in common — and it's not a cluster of coordinating frames. Instead, I'm starting to fall for the idea of letting one eye-catching piece of artwork do all the talking. There's something undeniably cool about this style — just check out the 6 examples below — and I can't wait to find the perfect piece to hang in my home.
