Keep It Light
Capture the chic feel of a whitewashed plantation cottage. In a white space, hang a transporting work of art—a photograph of the ocean or set of evocative paintings. Integrate the work’s bright tones in a few places, maybe with textiles, a colorful stack of books, and a few plants. With lively splashes of color, this graceful look will never get boring.
Out of the Wild
The most brilliant and pure color can be found in the tropical wild—on butterfly wings or schools of fish. Find a print that focuses on your favorite color, and use it as a centerpiece in a smaller space, like a bathroom. The focus on a single hue keeps the look clean and simple.
A Wall of Color
By displaying multiple works of art that share the same palette, you can make a wall look awash with layers of color. Hang the prints in a cluster (varying the frames and sizes is fine), and add on as you collect. From a distance, it will look like textured wallpaper.
