5 Large Wall Art Ideas for Your Empty Walls

Walls got you stumped? Get some large wall art ideas right here!

I’ve been thinking a lot about home decor trends lately. I guess because it’s the new year, and I always have this urge to refresh our house around this time. I love to keep up with what’s new and in style, but I think it’s important to stay true to your style, too. 

One of these home decor trends I’m seeing is large wall art.   

According to Pinterest, large-scale wall art searches are up 637%. Yes, you heard that right!   It’s time to get some big art up on those walls. 

I do think art is a very, very personal choice. Artwork can inspire one person and turn another one off at the same time. 

These are just some large wall art ideas to get the wheels turning a little bit. Maybe you have a large blank wall that this would fit into perfectly. Or – perhaps you are one of the 637% already searching!

Large Wall Art Ideas

I’ve been inspired by different types of large-scale wall art. Below are some ideas – again, to get those wheels turning. And you could DIY these ideas! I’m going to do a future post on that as well. Enjoy the inspiration!  🙂


Ok, yes had to start with abstract art. I love that you can find the colors you are looking for in abstract art. Somewhere out there, a piece of abstract art will work with your color scheme. There is something so soothing about abstract art to me.

Sometimes we don’t need to go further than our cameras for artwork. Maybe you have adorable pictures of your kids or some incredible travel photos

Tapestries/Wall Canvas

This counts as large-scale wall art! Tapestries and canvas add a bit of texture to a wall too. This one from Pottery Barn is so pretty.

I love this! Frame some patterned or shibori-dyed fabric.

Here’s an idea you may not have thought of before. Enlarge a page out of your favorite book and frame it as art!
