My partner and I recently bought our first home. It’s a bit of a fix-me-up, but the bones are there. And if there’s one thing I’ve noticed straight away, it’s how simple it is to completely transform a space. Our seventies living room complete with ultra-brown window frames and skirting is now a warm living area with colonial white skirting and matching white window frames.  And one really easy way to change the look and feel of your home is to add a splash of colour and intrigue with artwork and prints.

When it comes to using art and prints in your home, there is no right or wrong; there’s only what feels right for you. That said, here are some tips to help get you started.

  1. Mix and Match

One of the best things about using art and prints in the design of your home is how easy they are to mix and match. Piece a collection of black-and-whites together in the living room; add some animal prints to the bedroom; maybe a splash of green above the TV. Head to Domayne and start getting some ideas together. They’ve got everything from abstract swirls and colour blocks to animal portraits. You can’t go wrong.


  1. Buy What You Love

As easy as it is to swap one piece for another, you’re still going to see them in your home every day, and if it isn’t right—if it isn’t you—it’ll bug the heck out of you. So remember to buy what you love. Artwork and prints are design’s eyes to the soul, so make sure it’s a reflection of you!



  1. Consider Your Space

Is your whole room going to centre around one gloriously bold print on the wall? Or will that print be part of a larger theme in the room? Head to Domayne, check out all their artworks and prints, and consider which approach works best for you. And if you’re not sure, give both a try.


Now’s the time to get those ideas out of your head and into your home. Check out the display floor at Domayne today.
