11 Beautiful Large-Scale Photographs for Any Space

by Lauren Chorpening

We all love gallery walls for their economical way to refresh artwork on a whim. They can incorporate so many mediums of art and act as a visual feast in your home. Something a gallery wall can’t do, however, is focus on one gorgeous piece to set the tone of the space.

Large-scale photography has a grand, striking presence while keeping the look minimal and sleek. These 11 images from past Design*Sponge sneak peeks show us how dramatic and artful a single, oversized piece can be. —Lauren

Savannah and Sean chose a photograph that almost disappears into the white walls with a pop of contrast and composition of birds flying. It's a subtle way to use large-scale artwork in a room full of prints, textures and patterns.

Kimi Weart's entryway is anchored by a credenza and large-scale art. From first glance it looks like a photograph, but it's a graphite work by Kimi. Photo or not -- it's a captivating landscape to welcome guests as they walk in.
