Art speaks volumes, and reflects the character of both the artist and the connoisseur. All of us want to bring in this character into our homes with a unique collection. We are often faced with a dilemma about what would be appealing as home décor. Of course this largely depends on the rest of the décor in the house, but you could use these tips to make the right choice for your home.
Seek and Thou Shall Find – Art need not necessarily be found only in posh galleries and museums. There is plenty of interesting art work found in outdoor exhibitions, co-operatives, non-profit art galleries, art schools, and public spaces like hotels, libraries, etc. We live in the informative age which makes the internet a great medium to find unique art work and search based on your interests. So always take your time while buying art for your home.
Know the artist - Always take time to find the hand behind your chosen artwork and know their story. This helps you understand the theme and the context behind the artwork, thereby helping you appreciate the art in your home better.
Size matters – While choosing a piece of art for your home, it is important to consider the size of the painting and the space it is going to be placed in the house. You do not want to have a tiny painting on a huge blank wall, and neither do you want to draw too much visual space with a very huge one which will overshadow the rest of the décor. So choose the size of your painting wisely.
The right color – You want the art that you invest on to be in harmony with the rest of the room. An easy way of doing this is to pick one or two of the boldest colors in your room and look for art that compliments these colors. This will make the art look like it belongs in that environment.
Support emerging artists – Look for exhibitions in your city featuring emerging artists. Also, if there is an art school in your city, keep a lookout for any events that they might have. You will often end up finding some great and affordable art.
Black and white magic – Though we all love our colors, a piece of art in black and white is filled with character and gives the “class” look. It also fits into all kinds of spaces.
Match the décor and furnishings – This applies not only to the color, but also to the kind of artwork you choose. If your room is styled in a vintage way, you want to look out for some old paintings with an antique frame. If your home is a contemporary haven, go bold with those lines and colors and the kind of art you bring home.
Whatever be your choices, flaunt them proudly on your walls. After all, they add so much character to your home and speak volumes about you.
