But where should you begin? Well, keep reading! We’ll share our favourite colourful wall art ideas so you can transform your rooms and lift the mood of your home.

Which Colours Are Best For Your Spaces?

Before we jump into our favourite ideas for colourful wall art, think about the different moods you want to create in each space. For example, wall art for the living room is likely to be bright, colourful, or multi-coloured. You want to hang interesting conversation pieces that will never get dull – wall art to remember!

On the other hand, for your bedroom, nursery, or bathroom, you can still use colourful wall art but it’s better to use soothing tones. Choose cool tones like purple, blue, green, or silver. For your study, studio, or home office you might want colours that will boost your creativity, like orange, yellow, or purple. Our response to colour is, above all, very personal. So choose the colours that speak to you!

1. Rainbow Wall Art

Can’t decide on a colour palette? Why not choose them all? Rainbow coloured wall art adds an explosion of colour into your spaces. And, best of all, it can be moved easily from room to room, as it’s versatile enough to suit any decor scheme. Rainbow wall art is perfect for the living room, entrance hall, study, or even the bedroom!

Just beware of adding rainbow wall art to a room that is already looking a little busy. You don’t want guests going cross-eyed trying to spot the wall art in amongst surroundings that are already crowded or multi-coloured!
