Think about what you want the room to feel like.
If you want it to feel invigorated and lively, a brightly painted piece might work well. If the room is already full of color, maybe a more neutral piece would be better. If you have dark furniture and are looking for something more subdued, maybe a darker painting will suit your needs better.
Each room should be individually assessed. Don't forget to consider the mood of the room, what will balance the furniture and color scheme, and most importantly, your personal style. Art is an investment in your home and your happiness. If you choose something that doesn't resonate with you or match the mood of another piece in the room, it can look out of place. If you choose something that has a similar feel to the rest of what's on display, your art will fit right into its home - which could be a great way to add diversity to a space.
Before you dive into your online shopping cart, take a look around the room where you imagine hanging the piece. What are the predominant colors already present? How do they make you feel? Do you want to add another color to the mix, or would you like a more monochromatic look? If so, consider searching for artwork in complementary shades (opposite on the color wheel) that will contrast with existing patterns and hues. You can also search for art in analogous shades (next to each other on the color wheel), which is great if you want your art piece to blend in seamlessly.
Choosing art for your home is a fun process, but it can also be overwhelming. There are so many options out there that sometimes you don’t know where to start! To help make the process easier, here’s a checklist of considerations to think about when selecting what will grace your walls:
Next comes the frame. Frames look great and they do protect your artwork when hanging it on the wall, however, there are a few things to consider. First, let’s consider the size of the artwork and how this will relate to the frame. You can use a smaller or larger frame for effect, but generally, pick a size that is close to or slightly bigger than your piece. If you have an abstract print of blue and green colors, then you will want to think about getting a frame in one of those colors as well. If you have an art nouveau piece with lots of ornate design elements then you will want to pick a more ornate frame. It’s really up to you and what works best for the overall look that you are trying to achieve depending on the style of your home.
Materials vary greatly when it comes to frames as well; some materials go better with certain types of artwork than others. For example, wood frames tend to be more rustic in nature so this would probably not be ideal for contemporary style prints; however, if you had a large painting of flowers or another type of floral art it might work very well indeed! A metal frame might work better for something like abstract art since it doesn’t have any real subject matter that needs highlighting by using certain materials over others (or at least none more than anything else). Check out some examples below:
The first thing you should do is spend some time in your space, deciding what feels right. If you have a lot of natural light, consider art with rich colors so it will pop against the warm tones of the sun. If your kitchen has cool blue countertops, go with a piece of art that has warm colors to create harmony and balance. If you need something to really draw attention to an area, like a large wall or bookcase, consider a bright statement piece that is visually bold. This can be anything from an abstract painting to colorful photography--just make sure it stands out!
Another way to pick out great artwork for any room in your home is by incorporating pieces into existing decor items like pillows or rugs; this helps create cohesion between different areas while still maintaining each item's unique qualities. The key here is finding pieces that complement each other without being too similar!
I'm an innovator! I like to keep up to date when it comes to fashion, art, and food. I embrace change and am more likely than others to seek out excitement. II have an interest in street and graffiti-style art and prefer minimal, abstract, and pop art over representational and figurative pieces. I also like to keep up with artistic trends, and am very knowledgeable on the subject.
