First, remember that scale is crucial when selecting artwork for your home.
The most common error people make when buying artwork is failing to consider the size of the poster or art print needed to effectively fill a wall. Generally speaking, Whatever size you think you need for a blank wall, it's usually best to get the next size up unless you're decorating a small wall space or need to fill an area in an existing gallery (see below photo).
Although the size you estimate to be necessary may seem "big" after measuring your space, remember that most viewers won't be standing mere inches from your walls. Passers-by often admire artwork from a distance of several feet, at which point your prized possession may appear no bigger than a postage stamp. Simplistically put, the larger the better.

Choose two or three colors from your wall decor to serve as your base color scheme.
Put simply, if you want to unify the design of your entire room (or special seating area, reading nook, etc.), then you need to invest in a good rug. ) you should first imagine and write down the colors you want to use. If you don't already have a favorite hue in mind, that's the best place to start. Nonetheless, many individuals have no idea what hue(s) they wish to have in their residence. Finding your palette can be as simple as selecting two or three colors from an artwork (or multiple artworks) that you plan to display in the area. If you don't have a preexisting color scheme in your room (it's okay, most people don't), this method will help you establish one. In fact, An easy interior design trick is to choose a single piece of art as the inspiration for the room's color scheme, and then to fill the space with accessories in contrasting hues.
In Omnia Paratus Poster Design Inspiration
Most people, when furnishing a room for the first time, stick to safe, neutral colors like brown, gray, and ivory. After settling on a primary color scheme, all you'll need to do is add a few accent pieces (pillows, throw blankets, etc.) to complete the look. to improve the visual appeal of your home
Pro tip: You should not only pick out some comfy cushions and blankets, but also Include a variety of textures if possible. (i e (Think: velour, burlap, and wool.) , if you will, patterns (stripes, checkers, florals, geometrics) to avoid making everything look too "matchy-matchy" by using the same solid color across the board.
The above mood board was created using the colors found in the artwork ("In Omnia Paratus" Poster), specifically the yellows, blues, and rusts. Start by incorporating yellow into the room's decor for a pop of color and a sense of cohesion. Since yellow is such a focal point in the artwork, it's important to be mindful when accessorizing your home with the color and remember to keep the volume and placement of any yellow accents on the low end. Yellow flowers, a dark or cream-yellow throw blanket, and a soft, jewel-toned pillow are all that's needed to bring out the best in the artwork without making the whole thing look like it came from McDonald's.
Next Instead of going with a boring, neutral sofa, let's have some fun and pick one whose color scheme is similar to the blue dress in the artwork. It's true that a sky blue sofa is eye-catching and unusual, but remember that a neutral-colored sofa with blue throw pillows can look just as good. Finally, a rust-colored throw pillow with an intriguing texture and tassels would be the icing on the cake, as it would complement the vintage red-orange lettering in the artwork.

Third, hue is essential, but you also need to think about form, feeling, and subject.
It's simple to find colors that go well together, but it takes more effort to determine your personal style and the mood you hope to create when a visitor walks into your home. Take the example of the Högsmde travel poster from the inspiration board above. In this case, picking decorative items from the right color palette is only half the battle; what would really make an incredible difference is create a concept that relates to the artwork To do this, consider some of the first words that come to mind when you think of Hogsmeade (for the "muggles" among you, this artwork is based on the fictional universe from the Harry Potter book series). "Harry Potter" books in a set) The wooden deer head and antler lamp add a touch of rustic charm, while the throw blanket and iron candle holders evoke a sense of coziness, and the coffee table, fashioned after an oak barrel, conjures up images of the Three Broomsticks inn.
Additional Advice: Pick the Perfect Picture Frame
Most frame shops pressure me into purchasing a large, bordered frame whenever I take an item to them to be framed professionally. Many people make this mistake when framing artwork because they incorrectly assume that a wider frame will better showcase a poster print. Wrong Selecting a border width of more than 1" (for artwork 24x36" or smaller) is unnecessary except when aiming for a very specific Rococo / Baroque style. It's possible that a too-large frame will detract from the beauty of your print and even make your artwork look less expensive than it is. Do unusual cases exist? Of course! Most notably if you're having your artwork matted or if there is a lot of white space around it. But if we must keep things simple, this is a good rule to stick to.

A black wooden frame with a matte finish, flat / clean lines, and a border width of 1" inch or less is the easiest, most universally flattering, and most cost-effective way to mimic the vintage aesthetic of the poster prints sold on WindowShopGal. This style is classic and timeless, and it looks great with vintage posters.
To achieve a "farmhouse style" or even "boho" look, stray from a modern aesthetic by selecting a rustic finish or stained wood frame. Example images are provided below.

Seeking advice on a particular frame Most of the pictures on WindowShopGal.com are framed in black or one of many different wood finishes using the inexpensive Architect Frame from Frame USA. They are a great value and I am not being compensated in any way for recommending their frame. The Black Tyler Frame, available at Michael's, is yet another attractive option for me because it has a real glass front.
If you're looking for a rustic wood option with a slightly thicker frame border, the Calenzana Frame from Amazon (seen in the above picturesque Instagram photos) is a great choice.
A technical note on frame border widths: for 11x17-inch or smaller prints, aim for a 1/2-inch border; for 18x24-inch or larger art prints, aim for a 3/4-inch border; and for 24x36-inch or larger art prints, aim for a 1-2-inch border.
