The Excessive Statement
One of our favorite aspects of black-and-white photography is its ability to create a strong statement without the use of color. These enlarged versions of these art pieces, with every line and detail of boldness, resulting in a design that’s both evocative and captivating.
Steal this Idea: Vary the size, scale, and subject matter of your black-and-white images and make an oversized print that dominates a section of your wall.
Prints with a Fashionable Twist
Fashion is inextricably linked to black-and-white photography. Whether it’s a historical recreation from a 1950s shot or a more recent photo with a twist, this theme will bring a touch of beauty and sophistication to your home.
Steal this idea: Hanging artwork on top of molding is one of our favorite decorating hacks for spaces with intricate architectural characteristics. It’s a move that provides a more informal atmosphere while without covering up or detracting from the architecture.
The Complementary Neutral
Despite the fact that they don’t contribute any color, black-and-white images are an appealing addition to an all-neutral setting. They create the ideal balance, adding a visual impact that grounds the space without overpowering the subdued tones and various textures.
Steal this idea: You don’t always have to hang your artwork. A casual lean—whether on the floor, a desk, or another surface—is an easy way to add a comfortable atmosphere to your area (plus, no tools are necessary!).
The Eclectic Blend
Because of its absence of color, black-and-white photography complements practically every other style of art and may thus assist to integrate into any gallery wall or space. This collection includes works in a variety of genres and techniques, ranging from landscape oil paintings to figure drawings, yet the grouping feels harmonious due in large part to these photographs.
Steal this idea: The simplest approach to add to your collection of black-and-white photographs is to turn to your own history. Take out your shoebox of old family pictures and select your favorites to frame. It’s a simple and low-cost method to add some personality and history to your gallery.
