When thinking of ways to decorate a home, art is a great way to show off your personal style, while adding a touch of luxury to any room. Remember anyone can go out and purchase prints, however, not everyone knows how to make the most of these pieces. Make your home stand out among the neighbors, by utilizing art throughout your home. Our senior designers share these five ways to display art and give your home the make-over it deserves.
Abstract vs Traditional Art
Do you go for abstract, traditional or something in between? An expert tip is to go with your instinct, because finding a work that speaks to you is ideal. If the room you’re placing the piece, think of the piece as an extension of you. This will add your unique personality to any room in your home.
More Art Is Better
When in doubt never limit yourself to just one piece of art. Hanging up different prints can in fact add a very artistic touch to your room. You’re very own at-home gallery curated by you, that’s definitely going to be an icebreaker. Be sure to go with matching frames for a more cohesive look to your collection of prints.
Hang Multiple Pieces from the Same Artist
Finding an artist who has multiple pieces you find worthy of gracing the walls of your home always helps. Putting pieces by the same artist helps add cohesiveness and flow to any room. Arranging the pieces into a series will make a bold statement and tell a design story, especially if the artist has captured the essence of you through their works.
