Home is where the art is. The truth is no home design is complete with quality art pieces. Many people are scared at the thought of curating artwork for their home. However, with some planning and a bit of creative flair, you can create a home that tastefully embraces the arts.
Create A Timeless Collection
When curating your home with beautiful artwork is important to think beyond what artists and pieces are trendy and hot right now. Instead, you want to build a timeless collection of artwork that resonates with you. Art is only a good investment if it can give you some daily inspiration and improve the overall mood of your living space.
Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment
Get out of your comfort zone and look for pieces that don’t just depict the average things. Try expanding to different styles such as Industrial or Scandinavian pieces. Your collection should add a little surprise to your space. Investing in your average, catalog pieces will create bland and “cookie cutter” look.
Collect Pieces That You Love
All too often, homeowners purchase artwork just to fill up space on their blank walls. However, you should only invest in artwork that you absolutely love. Also, you don’t have to stick to just one style. Mix up the genres and sizes. There are no rules to what kind of pieces you can combine in a space. The only thing that matter is curating a collection that you’re in love with.
Create A Showcase
Do you really want to make a statement with your art collection? Turn an average area like the hallways into a showcase. The hallway is a great area to create your own gallery. Avoid hanging large pieces because they are likely to fall in such narrow spaces. Hang series of small to medium prints to capture your guest’s attention. Select a bold piece to hang at the end of the hallway to add to the look.
Blend Family Pics with Prints
Of course, no space can truly feel like home without hanging up photos of your family or personal mementos. Create a unique experience by blending your original artwork with your favorite prints.
Protect your pieces will quality frames that not only preserve your prints by also adds to the overall design scheme. Look online and at consignment shops for unique frames that feature intricate designs.
