Want to know the most popular wall art style from 2023 that will take your home from stale and outdated to energized and refreshed?
There is no “one best style.”
And that’s because the resounding style theme from 2022 isn’t to follow what everyone else is doing.
Nope. Instead, the trend is to be original and uniquely you.
Gone are the days of letting big brands tell you “this buffalo picture is the single best thing to hang in your modern farmhouse living room” or “wallpaper your walls with paint.”
If you want to be “on trend” while decorating your empty walls in 2022 then you need to find…
- Artwork that speaks to you on an emotional level.
- Wall décor that is unique and makes your space memorable.
- Wall art designed by real artists who put their heart and soul into the piece.
Because artwork isn’t just a decoration.
Wall art is a declaration of who you are as a person.
The compilation of your home décor – from colors schemes and furniture to wall art and throw pillows – creates a space and energy that are uniquely you.
That’s right. What you love and value matters more than anyone else’s opinion.
And to be clear, this isn’t bashing brands that are creating trends. We know that by hyping up “the next big thing” brands are drumming up sales for people who want to feel fresh and relevant.
That’s a good thing.
Because as humans, we are visual creatures.
And looks matter to us, A LOT. (Maybe even more than we would like to admit).
BUT we want to be sure that when you choose your next piece of wall art, you aren’t picking what the top HGTV designer thinks looks good.
We want to be sure you choose artwork you love.
So that when you come home after a long day of work and sit down in your living room, your wall décor makes you feel comfortable and relaxed.
And when you sip your coffee and check emails in your home office, your wall art helps you feel excited, motivated, and ready to crush your goals.
And when you are ready to hop into bed with your significant other, your above bed wall décor puts you in exactly the right mood.
So if you look around at the art on your walls and – quite frankly – you don’t think dang, my wall art is so cool. I love this art, you know it’s time to make a change.
Empty walls? Outdated Artwork? Faded Canvases?
Let’s fix that with unique trending wall art from emerging artists.
