Art can make or break a space. You can create the coolest room and then hang a piece of art that just ruins the whole look. One type of art that’s hard to mess up is black and white art. It’s classic, neutral and easy to pair with any color. The hardest part about black and white art is how boring it can be. Here are a few ideas on how to style your favorite black and white art.

One quick tip to make black and white art look cool and trendy is leaning it in layers on a buffet or dresser. Creating a vignette around the art gives it a stylish boost

 Displaying black and white prints in a grid or in a horizontal pattern creates a fun installation. You don’t need frames for this look so it’s easy on the wallet too!

When using black and white art, you don’t have to worry about matching styles. Any style, pattern, size and shape goes!
