How to pick beautiful pictures to enhance your walls

A beautiful picture can completely change a room, providing a great way to revitalise and update an existing living space, or add the finishing touches to your new décor. By adding a piece of wall art, you can add colour and warmth to any room.

It can seem daunting when faced with so many different types of art work, and often the choice is a difficult one to make. You’ll want to ponder a number of considerations before buying your ideal picture - colour scheme, styling and budget amongst others.

Celia Wickham is an art consultant to John Lewis. In this video she explains the different print processes, and discusses some of the considerations that will help you to make your decision.

Most of the artwork you’ll see in the video is contemporary, but we stock many different types, including Museum Art from famous artists to photographic prints. Whether you prefer prints or original paintings, there should be something to suit you, from framed pictures for an elegant look, to contemporary canvases for modern living areas. We have a made to order service too, so that you can specify a different frame, and in some instances a different size of print to suit your space.
