White walls create a light fresh space of purity and simplicity in a home; and make the perfect back drop to showcase fabulous art. With a simple minimalist palette you have the perfect opportunity to add your individual style from choosing canvas art or framed art prints in bold colours, or if you want a calm feel then look for art with subtle white and grey tones. You can see the difference the mood creates in the room above with a white on white moon canvas art print and the orange bird canvas art print.
The most important consideration for ready to hang canvas art for white walls is the colour on the white walls! We painted the inside of our house white, but make sure you buy a small can of paint and then paint different walls of your home – as the paint will look vastly different as to whether it is a dark room, or one where the sun hits the wall. We thought we found our perfect white colour until we tested it in the bathroom and it looked horrible, it was cool and clinical and not the warm white we wanted – so please test your white paint first! I highly recommend a mix of matte on the walls with a semi-gloss on trims and doors.
