Size Matters With Oversized Art

black and white photograph wall mural for 1st OptionAdd dimension, depth and visual interest by enlarging artwork to fill a wall.

Great spaces, with big empty walls, can sometimes be a challenge to decorate, but they needn’t be.  Make a statement with a grand work of art.  Modern technology allows high quality printing for a large format photo wall. It’s simple (and becoming more budget friendly) to customize with scale or color.  Dress a wall in a black and white classic style photograph, as shown in this dressing room.

pink tone on tone oversized photograph of Elizabeth Taylor from VogueThis tone-on-tone, featuring Elizabeth Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, seems like an odd choice for a playroom, but the colorful photograph has significant appeal.

Spiderman comic wall mural in childrens room from NYTimesChoose a favorite super hero to add a graphic punch in a child’s bedroom, playroom or even a nursery – they don’t stay little long!  While the Audrey Hepburn look-a-like [top] is frameless, the comic appears to be trimmed in black, although it could be part of the graphic.  Having it printed on a wrapped canvas will allow the freedom to relocate.  Whatever subject or color is chosen, the impact is dramatic.

    Can’t help but wonder what Liz and Audrey would think of themselves huge and all over peoples’ walls! Love the Spidey play/bedroom.

      Spidey is my fav too, although I am more of a Batman gal. I think Liz would wonder why more of us don’t have her plastered on our walls!

    Rachel, the photograph was originally featured in the NY Times magazine. You can try searching their website for designer info or search the internet for custom over-sized wall art websites.
