We know art can bring so much life to a space.
Whether it’s adding interest to a room, bringing in a pop of colour, or replacing a TV – art can be a beautiful addition to any home.
But like most things, there are so many options out there that it can be hard to decide what art work will look great in your space!
What size, colour, theme, frame, height, type should you choose?!!!!
Don’t let the options overwhelm you – let the style of your space and your own favourite things influence your decision so you choose the right art every time.
Here’s 6 things that will help you choose the perfect art work!
1. Consider scale
If your space has a huge wall, you need huge art – it’s as simple as that.
If your space is smaller, you only need a smaller piece. For bigger spaces, you can also use complimentary art and have two or three or more on the wall – get creative!
2. Trust your instincts
What do you love? What do you connect with?
Trust your gut and choose art that catches your eye. You won’t regret it if you love it.
3. Use the internet
These days, you don’t have to view art in a gallery (although I still enjoy doing this).
Check out phenomenal artists from your local area or go worldwide and search for beautiful art around the world – the options are endless with the internet and social media!
4. Go black and white
Let’s face it, monochrome goes with everything. If you’re choosing art, especially in home staging, try sticking to black and white prints.
They’re easy to mix and match and can look both super modern or classic – it’s a win win.
5. Be bold, be brave
If you’re looking to really make a splash with your art, why not consider mixing up traditional and slightly modern pieces together.
It can make your space feel extra unique when done well.
6. Remember, art is not just painting
Open your mind and look around…art is everywhere!
It can be photography, hand drawings, even things you’e created yourself. Paintings are beautiful but they are not your only option.
So that’s it – just start!
Art is so affordable now, it doesn’t need to be a large investment. Choose art you love with the above advice and make your space look and feel amazing!
