7. A wall display

For the ultimate in personalised Valentine’s Day gifts, a large-scale Wall Display or Split Canvas print are fantastic options for your loved one. Wall displays usually consist of two or more separate prints which combine to create one overall piece. It should be impactful and make a lasting impression in the home.

Split canvases, on the other hand, simply consist of one large, impactful image which is split into separate canvases which are styled next to each other on your walls to create a single artwork.

The best wall displays should combine to tell a story and work as a cohesive piece, rather than simply adding random images together. For the best wall displays and split canvases, use our tips below:

  • Use images from the same series, for example, wedding photos or family photos
  • Aim to use images in the same tone which are edited in a similar way. For instance, don’t mix highly-saturated images with images that have dreamy, pastel hues, and avoid combining black and white images with coloured images
  • When creating a split canvas, be sure to check where the image splits. Ideally, you don’t want to split the image in the middle of a person’s face, or cut off an arm!
