Looking to brighten up your home and create the illusion of space? A few pieces of well-chosen wall art can easily transform any room into an airy retreat.

Colors that Create Space

In small rooms, it is best to paint your walls white - it creates the illusion of space because it reflects light. Your artwork selection can incorporate bright colors such as yellow and even white – they are more inviting & open up small spaces.


Relaxation, Roberta Peck


Flores de Sol, Cecilia Garcia Amaro

Blue tones are also popular as they are associated with open spaces like the ocean and sky and give a subliminal feeling of airiness and freedom.


Coast Near Cap D’Ail, Sir Winston Churchill

Imagery that Creates Space

Look for pieces that have simple, uncluttered subjects; a flower, vase or portrait, that draws your eye beyond the subject, as in these examples by Pino.

Expansive imagery that extends beyond the room itself, such as far-reaching landscapes and seascapes, also make a room feel more open and spacious.


Canal with Rialto


Cafe In Cassis, Sam Park

Expand your horizons! Decorate your life™ with these simple tips in mind, and watch any room become more expansive and filled with light.
