It’s hip to be square! Pleasing to the eyes and the decorator’s mind, square art is a simple way to spice up a room or any interior corner to create a style that expresses yourself. Don’t have the slightest idea where to begin? We got you covered. These clever ideas quickly freshen up a space any time of the year.
This popular art trend is still going strong and is one of the easiest to do. Simply group three or more square art pieces together on a wall in a way that makes them look fabulous! Squares that form the impression of a larger square are one of the most common formations.
Useful for displaying small square pieces such as Miniature Art, floating shelves are another stylish way to showcase square art on a wall. The look creates a centerpiece on its own, and it’s a great option for dorm rooms, apartments, and other tight spaces.
You can create even more pop by pairing your square art with textured accents. Got a blissful painting of a beach? Nestle it with a conch shell on a shelf. Is it a rustic scene of nature? Set it beside a piece of driftwood. Even a quilt or crochet art is blissful next to a soft painting for a baby's room. The combinations are virtually endless.
If you have a dozen square art paintings, you’re the perfect candidate for the wall clock trend. First, you’ll need a large wall clock mechanism. Mount it on the wall, then hang the paintings around it in a circle. Some decorators like to place inspirational messages in the center. It’s the snazziest way to keep track of time in your home or office.
Not sure what to do with that awkward section of wall under your stairway? Express a colorful statement with square art! The shapes fit perfectly under those tough-to-decorate nooks and corners. Create a gallery wall, several groupings, or fill the entire stairway with them.
Square art is an easy way to add inspiration to an otherwise boring work or study area. Whether your desk is large or small, there’s a square shape for every size. Square paintings on a wall help make tight corner desks appear bigger and snazzier.
If you’re not sure what to do with your gigantic square art collection, here’s a crazy idea. Why not fill an entire wall with square art? Yes, you read it right. This growing trend may seem outlandish but it looks amazing with square art shapes. Try picking a “feature” wall that’s easy to see in as many places of the house for the most powerful viewing effect.
Now that you have some decorating ideas, it’s time to pick your favorite square art! Check out all-new art pieces in Seaside Art Gallery’s Outer Banks Squared: The Art Show. You can view them right now online, order them by phone, or see them in person at the Gallery.
