How to find matching color art prints and posters

While contrasting colors in art prints and posters can brighten up a room, matching colors or monochromes can create a very consistent “theme” and give a “designed” look.

Here are some tips for matching art prints and posters:

1. Decide on a color. Think about whether you want the room to look cool (darker blues and greens, grays) or warm (reds, oranges, yellows), or airy (lighter blues, greens, tans, off-whites).

2. Think about whether you’d like very consistent shades of the same color, or a monochrome range of shades. For example, the city-scapes below all have similar skies, whereas some of the other examples have many shades.

3. Use the PostersByColor app to find art prints and posters that match your selected color tones.

Example #1: Dusk city-scapes

I think cities might just look their best around this time…

Example #2: Warm abstracts and semi-abstracts

Here, a small range of warm colors (burnt red and orange) is combined. The use of abstract and semi-abstract art prints and posters creates an overall effect rather than focusing on the details.

Example #3: Shades of green in nature

Hold on a minute. One of these isn’t found in nature…
