Using artwork while doing up the décor of your home is a great design opportunity. When picked up thoughtfully, the right artwork can set the mood of the room.
Choosing the right size
When choosing an artwork for your living space, the most important element to consider is its size. An artwork that is too small will get dwarfed by the furniture surrounding it and a piece that is too big will make the space look cluttered. Make sure to take measurements of the wall space available to figure how much room you have at your disposal.
Placing of artwork
We often sideline artwork and deal with it in the very last, long after the final coat of paint has dried up on the walls and all the furniture has been arranged. Big empty walls are a great focal point in any room, but sometimes floors are great too! You don't actually have to take the trouble to hang your artwork. You can simply keep it against a wall. However, keep in mind to place the heart of the piece at the level of your eyes.
Choosing colours and accessories around your artwork
Using colours from the artwork is impactful while doing up the room. Add accessories like pillows, blankets, curtains, lampshades, and bedsheets by picking out one of the secondary colours in your central piece of artwork to create a unifying statement.
Remember that not all artworks are similar. Try different mediums and dimensions to add texture to the living space. Rough textures make a living space feel intimate while smooth textures bring a sleeker tone to it. Moreover, installing artworks make the room appear finished. It works as a finishing element, making the space look and feel complete.
When used properly, artworks offer a great framework around which you should be able to plan the rest of the living space. From contemporary wall art, abstract, oil paintings to modern art, you can install whatever suits your taste and style.
