Artwork is so important when styling a home as it provides an instant colour palette and creates a focal point within a space.
Choosing artwork for your home can be challenging as there is so much to take into account. When selecting art, think about the mood you want to feel in the room. Light and bright colours give off a casual feel whereas dark monochrome colours can give you a moodier and more formal setting.
Also, consider the style of the artwork you want to choose for a space, whether it be an abstract print or a family portrait, each style is going to give you a different feel so it's important to select the right style for the right space. Colour also plays a huge role in artwork as it can dominate the space and really have an influence on the feel of the room. It's also important to pick the right frame for the right artwork, the general rule is that black and white frames never go out of style. Choosing a black or white frame can also highlight the artwork making it more of a feature.
Lastly, the size and scale of your artwork are one of the most important things when selecting art. Having artwork that is too small or too large for a room is never going to have a good impact, always try to scale pieces of artwork to the furniture and the room it sits in. Using these few tips will ensure the artwork selections you make will be the perfect fit for your home. Visit blinkliving.com.au
