Online lifestyle editor Briana and her boyfriend Buzz, a mobile developer, intended the bedroom in their Brooklyn loft to have an airy, calm, Palm Springs-inspired feeling. Yet the expansive wall behind their bed seemed impossible to fill and they knew small pieces would just make the space feel cluttered or jammed. By opting for one large piece of art hung directly above the bed, they found their sleeping area was instantly anchored. The key to using art successfully in small spaces is to opt for large, over-scaled pieces. Art pieces like this instantly add a graphic focal point and also offer a single source of color to inspire paint and accessories that personalize the space.
