These days, wall art tends to be minimalist and modern, or colourful and retro. It's less common to find traditional art work gracing the wall of our living rooms and hallways as was once the norm. Our preferences have changed, new trends have developed, and now, rather than imitation art or famous prints that everyone might have, we're looking for more original pieces.

Picture walls are a very current way of expressing our personal tastes, from our best-loved bands and novels to our favourite places, and are the perfect way to display our creativity! Take a look at these bold and beautiful designs to inspire you before you embark on creating your very own picture wall:

Nature inspired prints

These 3D framed artwork prints from Ria Rich Creative draw inspiration from the beauty of nature, translating it into a bold modern image that is sure to make a statement in any room of the home. Whether you opt for the minimalist butterfly print or the more colourful floral pieces, these great examples of contemporary wall art will add a splash of style and colour in an instant.

Star quality design

Fresh off the printing press, this lively piece of wall art incorporates layered star shapes in red and purple against an off-white background. The contrast creates a big visual impact, and though the image itself is simple, the print can totally transform a plain wall in need of some sparkle!

The writing's on the wall

Embrace your inner antiquarian with these quirky prints, which transform snippets of 19th century British history into wonderfully wacky wall art. A variety of flamboyant animals, from this well-attired deer to an owl sporting a monocle, are the real subjects, though look closely and you'll be able to read about Celtic legends, folk tales and even journal entries from times gone by. The designs express originality and a touch of eccentric British humour, and are a great way to inject personality into your home!
