In the past couple of years, we’ve all been spending more time at home due to yo-yoing restrictions resulting from the pandemic.

While this has meant curtailing our social lives to some degree, millions of Brits have embraced this by investing time and money in their homes to the tune of £6.7 billion in 2020.  Along with DIY projects, home bars and landscaping, one major trend which emerged is that of wall art.

Tired of staring at the same walls, Brits have been shopping for unique and stunning wall art to brighten up their rooms.

Wall art prints are a great, inexpensive way of transforming a room and, in 2022, we’re not going to be playing it safe with tried and tested and altogether predictable colour combinations.  As we ring in the new year, decor is going bold and, in this article, we’ll take a look at some wall art colour combinations you might want to try in 2022:

Down to earth

Soft earth tones never go out of fashion and, the great news here is that these shades will complement every kind of decor, whatever colour your walls may be.  Look for wall art in contrasting shades and accent these with bold black to add a touch of classic chic to your room.

Blue and green sets the scene

Green has been having a moment for some time now, both in clothing and in home decor and, it’s tempting to go all matchy-matchy with your green wall art.  Instead, try combining wall art in emerald and mint shades with similar sized pieces in azure.

This combination can work really well on plain white walls or, for a more striking effect, on a signature wall in teal or navy blue.

Code red

The use of bold red is a sure fire way to add a touch of stunning colour pop to a living room.  While this is a fabulous colour, it’s most definitely a case of less is more (unless you want your room to look like a Dexter set). For ultimate impact, pair your red wall art with black and grey tones – and don’t be afraid to experiment with sizes and shapes.

Prime time

If you’ve never thought of combining red and green wall art, now’s the time to start.  A surprisingly stunning combo, these two primary colours work best when matching a vibrant red with a cooler shade of green.

The grey matter

For those looking to upscale their wall art while sticking to a neutral theme, greys, blacks and browns offer the perfect solution.  This simply three way combination creates the illusion of depth while retaining a warmth – making it the perfect grouping for pale ivory or grey painted walls.


Wall art is an investment which can transform the most ordinary of rooms into something really special.  When choosing wall art colour combinations, don’t be afraid to experiment with different shades and different pairings to find the one which suits your home and your personality.

When it comes to colour combos for 2022, the rules are very much being thrown out of the window as Brits move to their own beat in terms of colour, texture and style.
