5 Wall Art Looks that Never Go Out of Style

For our last post of 2016, you might expect us to do a trend roundup of what we’re thinking will be the big new thing for next year. But instead, because wall art is so personal, and we’re inclined to consider it an investment that shouldn’t be replaced year-after-year, we’re rounding up five classic wall art looks that never go out of style.

1. Oversized gold mirrors, especially over the fireplace.
There are plenty of options for what you can hang above your fireplace (we just hope it’s not a TV!), but one of our all-time favorite looks is a large-scale, antique gold mirror. It’s a timeless style that feels grand and instantly draws the eye up.

2. Family photo walls.
One wall art arrangement we can guarantee you’ll never get sick of is a family photo wall. You’ll never tire of reliving your favorite family memories, or your children’s elementary school portraits, especially if the wall is done in a thoughtful way with professional framing.

3. A symmetrical gallery wall.
Gallery walls have been a major wall art trend, but they’re by no means a new idea. For a look that’s timeless, not trendy, opt for a symmetrical grid arrangement, which feels tailored and traditional.

4. The statement console.
A great way to fill an empty space along a wall: A console table paired with large art in almost the same length. It’s a simple combination that works every time.

5. Black-and-white.
Whether it’s photography, a simple line drawing, or a contemporary painting, black and white wall art goes with everything, and can easily be updated with a new frame to suit evolving decor throughout your home.
