You may have noticed the trend toward oversized artwork and photography. It may not be for everyone, but I think it’s fabulous to be big and bold in your design choices. One huge piece will definitely take care of a single wall or may be enough for the whole space. The look can work in any space, but today I have 20 examples of dining rooms with oversized art for your inspiration board.

I think the dining area is an especially great space for oversized artwork because not only do you have a captive audience, it can fill in the awkward silences or be the topic of conversation at a dinner party. It makes the perfect pairing with a great table. They center each other, literally and figuratively.

Whether it’s photography, a print or a painting, here are some dining rooms to get you inspired.
