Black and White Wall Art

Creating a feature wall in your home with only black and white wall art can look really striking – especially when combined with a simple, minimal Scandinavian interiors. Look to muted monochromatic colours, Mid-century pieces, wood, pale or dark floors and a backdrop of white walls.
Yellow Front Door sells a number of black and white prints, like the pieces below from artist Kristina Dam. The focal point hero and "hero" piece is the Black Wall Structure, a simple piece made from a combination of glossy and matt 2mm thick cardboard (RRP $109)

When arranging wall art, a good idea is to lay them out on the floor first so you can move them around and have a play with the layout to see what looks good. Alternatively, cut out newspaper in the correct shapes and sizes and use blue-tack to play around with them on the wall.

Consider spacing between the artworks - they look best when spaced a similar distance apart. The art can be arranged in a number of different ways – in a cross shape, circular, v-shape or square. The number of artworks can vary also – two, three, four, or more.

Another way to display black and white artworks is propped up on a table, sideboard or shelf, along with other display items, to create an interesting vignette.
