Choose from a great range of vintage, contemporary, retro and antique art and wall hangings

The use of vintage wall art in your interior scheme is the most sophisticated way of decorating your home. It’s arguable that a house is never really a home without the personal touch of art on the walls. There is really such a wide variety of art that can make worlds of difference to the look and feel of your space. Whether you want to go with vintage wall art or something a little bit more modern and quirky, it’s up to you and what you want your space to look like. With that in mind, it can be tough to decide on the right art to help revive the walls of your space.

There’s no real right or wrong methods to wall art and wall hanging but there are a few tried and true guidelines that could help simplify the process. In most homes there are a lot of features other than the wall itself to consider when thinking about the appropriate sized artwork for your space. A good rule of thumb would be to make sure that whether you are planning to add a wall hanging piece of art or a group, the width of the whole thing should be about two thirds of whatever object is under them. For example, if you are hanging the art above the fireplace, measure the fireplace and make sure the art takes up two thirds of the width of the fireplace. As far as the height placement, it’s safe to say that eye level is best. Keep in mind that in the living room, if the art is going above the sofa, it should be kept at standing eye level. On the other hand, if the art is to be hung above the dining table, it would look best if hung at sitting eye level.

There is so much to choose from it’s hard to know where to start. At Lesser-Spotted we have curated a collection which we know will work fantastically well. We have pretty tapestry antique wall hangings, vintage wall art in the form of posters, along with some contemporary prints from today’s artists. All this sitting alongside some fantastic antique oils of landscapes and still life.
