Hot Trends: Mystical Fall Wall Art
One of the top design trends for 2022 is surrealism. Our “mystical” collection, curated by our art director Tirzah Goodman, is our take on this trend. Autumn is a dreamy season, so why not pick wall art that is equally ethereal? As the leaves change to yellow and orange, add a mystical painting that showcases the beauty of this transformative season. Find a painting or illustration that uses brushstrokes to create an otherworldly appearance. Mystical artwork should have something almost eerie about it, without sacrificing warmth. Speaking of warmth, swap out your cool bulbs for warmer lighting to curate a romantic ambience for fall. This will also enhance your dreamy piece of wall art.
