Such a combination will expand your imagination, thus enabling you to mentally travel far and wide while at the same time evoking excitements or emotions based on the individual vintage art. Besides the color and the design, you’ll need to consider the actual text or image that’s on your vintage artwork prints. If the image is of warships, chariots, tanks or anything of the sort, you definitely want to have a background color that blends well with it to offer continuation. For example, you could consider having navy blue wall background in your living room where the print has warships sailing. This will provide you with vastness that depicts the sea and how it blends into the firmament. These vintage art prints could also be of a political war figure, an animal representation of an empire, a weapon or any other thing reminiscent of the time, place or person in mind.
