In the photo of the living room interiors, it is increasingly possible to find modular paintings above the sofa or on one of the walls free from furniture. Images differ in a variety of subjects and can consist of many details from two or more. Despite the fact that such an accessory can be placed anywhere in an apartment or house, most often these pictures are hung in the hall. Bright panels refresh the interior and give it a special flavor.
Modular pictures are a great way to transform a living room interior.
The role of modular paintings in the interior
The modular picture differs from the classical version only in the number of parts. Moreover, the canvas can be divided both along and across. The modules can have different sizes and shapes, a picture looks original, when one or several parts are taken out of the correct figure.

Elements placed on the same wall look very harmonious. Lack of frames allows the details of the panel as if to flow into each other. Modular paintings often become one of the main details of the living room interior and certainly attract the attention of guests.
Important! The color scheme and the plot of the wall panels can influence the psychological state of the household and guests. Bright abstract images fill with energy, encouraging and tuning in a positive way. Calm colors and landscapes, on the contrary, calm and help to tune in to a good rest.

In addition, choosing the right image and size, you can visually change the living room space:
- A small room will visually expand the panel with the landscape, located in the horizontal direction.
- If the ceilings are too low, the direction of the modules should be vertical. Vertical lines and stripes visually make the room higher.
- The volume of the living room can be added by placing several modules over a large area. By varying the distance between the details of the picture, you can achieve a dynamic effect.
- The modular panel is great for zoning a room and highlighting a recreation area or a bedroom.

It is worth considering that the color gamut influences the visual perception of the size of the room. Light pastel colors expand the space, while dark colors, on the contrary, narrow it. How to apply these tips in practice can be viewed on the photo with modular paintings in the interior of the living room.

How to choose
Properly chosen decor is a pledge of harmony in the interior of the hall. Modular pictures need to be selected, taking into account several rules:
- Too small modules look too chaotic and only clutter up the wall space. The optimal size is from 30 cm.
- The plot of the image should match the style of the living room. In classical interiors, landscapes and portraits are good, while for modern styles (high-tech, loft, modern, etc.) abstract images and industrial landscapes are better suited.
- The dimensions of the modular panel should correspond to the area of the walls. If the image is small, it will be lost on the wide wall, and too large pictures look cumbersome in small living rooms.

But the color scheme is to choose a trim, upholstery or other decor. In this case, the selected shades can be in harmony with the main background, and play in contrast.
How to hang
How exactly to place the modular picture on the wall in the living room depends on the size of the room, the height of the ceilings and the quality of lighting. Vertical or horizontal placement, of course, plays its role, pulling the space up or expanding to the sides.

Interesting pictures with imitation of the window. To do this, it is enough to take an image of a beautiful landscape (it is best to have a panoramic photo of excellent quality) and transfer it to canvas, and then divide it into several vertical parts. The view of the far horizon will visually stretch the room and create a sense of volume. It will look good landscapes with mountains, forests and the sea.

The panels in the diagonal direction look original. They will look good on the wall along the stairs to the second floor (if the living room is in a private house or a two-story apartment). When placing the panel should take into account the height. The center of the composition should be approximately at the level of 1.65 m. If the modules are hung over the sofa, then the distance from the back should not be too large, ideally about 12 cm.

How to determine the size
The interior of the living room allows a variety of experiments. The plot and color pictures can be any, even the most futuristic. However, size plays a significant role. Designers do not recommend hanging on the wall modular paintings of less than 60 cm, they will simply be lost against the background of the rest of the decor. The size of the panel should be proportional to the size of furniture, walls and other accessories.
Larger images should be placed on loose walls. The size of the composition can be from floor to ceiling, and in order for the image not to merge with the wall, there must be some free space from modules to the ceiling and floor. A large enough panel can be hung above the sofa, usually the boundaries of the composition and the width of the sofa are the same. But if the living room is small and the furniture is compact, too large images will simply block it.
Choosing the size of the composition should be guided by its own taste, since interior design is often a subjective matter. In your home, you can allow yourself to show individuality and uniqueness. Choosing a place for a modular picture, it is not necessary to limit yourself to a sofa in the living room. You can hang several panels in the same style in different rooms, this technique will create a sense of unity of the whole apartment.
There are several methods of manufacturing, techniques and materials. A variety of options will allow you to choose exactly what will best fit into the interior style:
- Oil painting: the most traditional version - the image is painted on canvas with oil paints, and then ready-made modules stretch on slatted frame;
- Glass painting in batik technique;
- Drawing the image or embossing on the skin, natural or artificial;
- The application of leather, glass, fabric, wood and other materials;
- Embroidery ribbons, beads or beads.
Modular pictures on the sofa, made in different techniques, can be seen in the photo of the interiors of the living rooms.
Competent selection of colors is very important for the interior. Both the colors in harmony with the background and the contrasting combinations will fit well. Contrast colors complement each other, so this combination always looks impressive. For example, blue and yellow tones, red with white, green or lilac with orange.
The modules matched in one color, but of different saturation, for example, from pale blue to blue look harmoniously in the interior of the hall. It looks spectacular, especially if the picture is the central focus of the living room.
If you do not plan to focus on the panel, you should choose shades that are in harmony with the decoration of the walls and upholstered furniture. Such modules will not be too beaten out of the overall interior. A universal solution for a living room in any style would be a black and white image. Monochrome colors are combined with any shades in the interior.
The theme of the image for the living room can be very diverse. Vegetative themes are very popular, they are numerous images of flowers: roses, lilacs, lilies, violets, daisies, peonies, etc. Next are natural motifs with various images of reservoirs - rivers, lakes, seas. No less popular are panoramic photos of cities, especially Paris, Rome, London, Venice, Prague and other famous cities of the world. National motifs also look interesting, for example, Indian sights, Japanese landscapes and pagodas.
The theme of the image and the palette should be combined with the style of the interior in the living room. On the walls of the living room, combined with the kitchen, modular pictures with images of fruits and berries will be appropriate. Images in retro style will fit well into the loft style, and abstract paintings will suit hi-tech or modern.
In the living room, decorated in one of the classic styles, landscapes, images of ancient castles and mansions, historical and architectural monuments, still lifes and antique portraits will look good. In the provenance or chebbi chic, modular panels made in the technique of embroidery with satin ribbons or beads look good.
Ways to post pictures
Recreation area or wall behind the sofa is the most popular place to accommodate modular compositions. The image is located directly above the head of the seated people. The placement of modular paintings on the wall opposite the recreation area is no less popular; in this case, you can admire the artistic composition sitting on the sofa talking with friends. In the photo with the interiors of living rooms you can see how you can hang pictures on the sofa.
Big picture on the wall
Very often this is not a modular design, but a solid canvas, created in the classical technique - with oil on canvas. Such paintings are decorated with a baguette that is suitable in size and style and require a large amount of space.
So that the wall does not look overloaded, its decoration should be monotonous and neutral, and there should not be any decor elements next to it. The picture should not be clamped on all sides by furniture or in contact with arches, columns, window openings, doors, etc. Sometimes an image is of such size that it takes up all the space from the back of the sofa to the ceiling.
The composition of the three parts: triptych
Beautiful and stylish looks modular picture of three parts. It is desirable that the boundaries of the composition repeat the size of the sofa, so the triptych will look more harmonious. The distance between the modules should not be too small or too large, 10 cm is enough. If we talk about the color scheme, it can overlap with the color of upholstery and decorative cushions or be contrasted. The plot of the paintings depends on the overall style of the interior and the personal taste of the owners of the house.
The chaotic arrangement of the modules
If the modular picture consists of four or more parts, you can experiment with their location relative to each other. The form of the composition does not have to be square or rectangular. The modules can be placed in a ladder, in a staggered manner, some parts may go beyond the regular geometric figure, as if tearing it.
Creating such a chaotic modular composition is to determine its center. Often this is the largest module, next to which there are smaller parts. All picture modules must be made in the same color scheme.
Modules on the shelf
This method of placing modular paintings in the interior of the living room is the easiest and allows you to avoid unnecessary fussing with drilling the walls. There may be several shelves, but they themselves are located in different directions: diagonally, vertically, horizontally, etc.
Shelves should not distract attention from the picture, so it is best to choose the most simple models that blend in color with the walls. Glass shelves will look inconspicuous. In addition to the picture modules on the shelves, you can place additional accessories if they are not out of the general style of the image. These can be candles, photos, suitable souvenirs, aroma lamps.
Modular pictures hung over the sofa will be a good addition to the living room interior. Images can either be a central composition in a room, or supplement other accessories. The choice of the size, the number of modules and the subject of the image depends only on the size of the wall, the style of the interior and your own preferences.
