Supersize It: Large-Scaled Art

At Home in Arkansas

I love large-scale art in my small home. It seems to make my tiny rooms feel grand. When I saw photos of this Garden Getaway, I was immediately smitten in a big way.

In small spaces we've heard less is more, but much more — when applied to size and scale — can work, too. Don't underestimate the power of overstatement. Many times a large piece of art or an oversized piece of furniture can add the interest that your space needs without the clutter — which is often the kiss of death in small spaces.

Last year, I enlarged a favorite photo to poster size and it's my favorite piece of art in my home. It also allows me to have one large statement piece that is personal and didn't cost me a fortune. I also have a pair of giant galvanized letters from my wedding day that I move around my house whenever I need a visual refreshening.
My latest idea is to to let my toddler run all over a large canvas with painted feet at free will — in my hand-picked colors of course — for a silly art piece for our entry.
