As much as I love a collected gallery wall and tiny art groupings, I also think there is a place for large scale, statement-making artwork. I love mixing all types of art into my home to personalize a space. It’s no secret I’m a fan of large, expansive art. I have my own giant windmill print that I shot in California, which lived in our entryway in both our first and second homes. I have also shared a DIY for large diptych that used to adorn the walls of our living room, and there are many more similar examples that can be found throughout spaces I’ve designed in the past. After sharing lots of these vignettes, I’ve been getting this question often… where do you find large scale artwork? Today I’m rounding up a bunch of my favorite large scale pieces that arrive framed and ready to hang! Click through to see them all…
The nice thing about large art is it’s easy to decorate around. It’s the best solution for balancing heavy objects in a room (a large TV, a fireplace, built-ins, a big sofa, etc). I love installing giant art on the opposing side of a room to achieve better balance.
Before we get started, I want to say- this post is NOT sponsored by Minted, but I really love supporting independent artists through the platform and they have amazing large scale options. It’s probably my number one go-to resource when I’m searching for BIG art.
The timing couldn’t be more perfect because they’re actually having their semi-annual frame sale that lasts through Monday, January 14th. If you like one of the Minted prints from any of the collages below, use code 2019FRAMES for 20% off! Again- this isn’t sponsored, I just thought I’d try to help save you some money!

If you’re not a fan of negative space- position a bench, console table, or storage beneath a large landscape oriented work of art. Immediately you’ll have a stylized and functional vignette! Obviously I’m a fan of this concept in entryways or mudrooms. It also works well installed above a dresser in a bedroom, to balance a large bed or headboard.
Next up… square large scale artwork. I’m a big fan of square shapes- they feel super balanced and easy. There are lots of good options in this collage:
One of my favorite square pieces was the artwork that lived in our green dining room. I’m still regretting getting rid of that piece!
Lastly, I’ve compiled my favorite portrait oriented pieces. I have loved #7 for awhile now and feel like I should just buy it already because it’s titled “Last Tuesday”. Is that a sign it should be mine… you know- for the sake of good business juju?
I hope this post was helpful! Large scale artwork can be a bit of an investment… after all, think about how much real estate and wall space these pieces take up, but in my opinion- they’re well worth it. All of these come framed and that’s the biggest battle for large art. My giant artwork always gets the most compliments and I think it’s the easiest to install and decorate around.
I’d love to hear which ones are your favorites! I want to buy a big piece for our new house. Don’t worry though… the windmill will once again reappear.
