Now that you’re spending the majority of your time at home (as you should be!), you may be realizing just how much blank space you have on your walls. Or perhaps you’ve fallen out of love with your current art and feel the need for a refresh.

If you have the Google Arts & Culture app downloaded, then you need to take advantage of the Art Projector feature. It allows you to see how famous artworks would look in your space.

“Using the camera on your smartphone or tablet, Art Projector allows you to transport life-size artworks in front of you,” the Google Arts & Culture website reads. “You can even move up close to each artwork and study every stunning detail in super high resolution.”

Check out how one user placed Leonardo da Vinci’s  “Mona Lisa” in their living room:

You can scroll through a variety of different artworks done by famous painters like Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, and Picasso to name just a few. Then, drag and drop the piece into your space and enjoy just as you would at a museum.

Google Arts & Culture even supplies you with all the details of the piece so you can brush up on your art history while enjoying the view.

Once you’ve tracked down a piece you’d like to bring into your home, you can find the piece you like on Fine Art America and purchase a print in whatever size you need. You can also choose a frame, mat, paper style, and finish to totally customize the appearance of your print.
