Consider Art Styles
When decorating your home, consider
which styles of art appeal to you the most
and build up your collection. Are you drawn
to abstract art or more traditional? Does
your preference fall somewhere in the
middle? Choose art that feels the most like
an extension of your personality to hang
inside of your home.
Once you’ve determined your artistic
style and collected your pieces, you’ll
have to consider what spaces the art will
best suit. If your house is already
painted and furnished to your liking,
determine where your pieces best fit in
your house. A white, modern living
space will welcome a collection of
vibrant abstract pieces.
Also consider the medium of the art you’re
purchasing. Works such as oil or acrylic paint
can provide added texture. If you’re looking
to add art while remaining budget-conscious,
consider opting for photo prints.
Don't be afraid to
You don’t have to limit yourself to only one
piece of art in a space. You can combine
multiple pieces to create bigger, more
dramatic focal points. No need to limit
yourself to creating rows of artwork, either.
You can arrange art pieces of various sizes and
shapes to create collages of different scales.
When it comes to incorporating art
into your home decor, don’t be afraid
to be creative and take artistic liberties.
Design a room around a piece of art,
or place art in unique spaces such as
bathrooms or closets. Instead of
leveling artwork, consider collages or
leaning a group of paintings against a
wall to add depth and originality to a
room. Mix media and dimensions.
