Decorating with Art

We all know that paint is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to add color to a room. But beautiful artwork is another way to enhance your walls. Here are some easy tips which can add a lot of personality to any room in your home.

  • Let your art serve as a colorful finishing touch
  • Find selections that blend and compliment each other
  • Use art to bring unity to the room - and the entire home
  • Group small pieces together in attractive arrangement to cut down on clutter
  • Odd numbers in a grouping usually work out best
  • Display larger works of art as single pieces
  • Flank a large piece on each side with two coordinating smaller pieces
  • If you can't find art to your taste, create it yourself
  • Use other art as an inspiration to your own creations
  • Experiment with shapes and splashes of color if you don't feel you have the skill for more intricate work
  • Don't match art with furnishings - blend the color palette
  • Let the art dictate the color palette of the room
  • Select a softer, more neutral color from the art for your walls and flooring
  • Strong colors will create a dramatic look
  • Softer colors will create a peaceful, harmonious feeling
  • Select art images that reflect your personal style and taste
  • Pull from the dominant colors in the art to accessorize the rest of the room
