You may be an amateur when it comes to art and paintings, but that doesn’t stop you from decorating your home with beautiful art designs and impressive pictures. Displaying artwork requires you to have an eye for positioning and presenting. A piece of art can work wonders when put in the living room, but not the same when in the bedroom. Depending on the theme and overall colour of the room, you have to choose the corresponding artwork. The pieces of artwork should complement one another and create a flow throughout your home. No matter what your budget is, you’ll be able to find paintings that suit your taste.
Artwork should complement your house, not overcrowding it. Don’t be tempted to purchase too many pieces and hang them all over the place. Your room may look stuffy instead of elegant. Make sure to choose a style that you’re sure you want to look at after a tiring day at work. Generally, colours should be neutral or relaxing. It may be a painting of your favourite place or something that reminds you of your happy childhood, for example.
If you have a small living room, it makes no sense to purchase a big painting that will look incredibly large when put into the context of the room. You wouldn’t want the picture to take up too much space and absorb all the attention when someone enters the room. If you want to hang several paintings over a couch, make sure they are roughly the same size so that it creates a sense of harmony.
Mix and Match
Why not get creative and design a mix-and-match style for your home? You don’t need to follow any specific motif. Being creative will help you create a private atmosphere that is unique to you. Best of all, even though the style may not match those you’ll find in a typical home decor magazine, it’s your style, and it gets the approval mark from you. If you have children, they may have a specific taste that doesn’t match yours. Being able to compromise and create a decor that pleases you both is a challenging task. The important thing to keep in mind is to choose items that don’t put your child at risk. Sharp or pointy decor objects should not be placed in their room.
With all being said, decorating your home is a fun task, and you just need to keep an open mind and be willing to try different things in order to create a comfy artsy home. There are many available resources online to help you orient your way through different design if you are a newbie and don’t know much.
