Did you know that where you live has a major impact on your mood? This is why our home décor is so important.
Most interior designers agree that wall art is one of the most cost-effective ways to create ambiance in any room. As new technology evolves from the internet to digital photography, your choices are vast and potentially just a click or two away. Your art becomes the focal point in the overall success of a room design.
Here’s what to consider when choosing your focal point.
Rather than focusing on style, choose a piece of art that you truly like, one you know will provide gratification for years to come. Art is a reflection of you and it sets the mood of your room.
If your room already contains furnishings, consider a couple of the bolder colors already in the room that you want to find in the artwork. The color is also an important element in your design if you are choosing the painting first.
Know your room measurements and the size of the wall where your artwork will hang. If the artwork is too big, it can overwhelm a room, and if it’s too small, it will look lost. Try to envision the art piece on your wall and in the context of your room. You may also consider a few related smaller pieces nearby rather than one larger piece on a wall.
Pro Tip: Use painter’s tape to outline where you want your artwork to go on the wall, this will help you see if the size is right for your room.
The style of your furnishings should also be considered. In a more modern décor setting, unframed art may create a better effect than traditional framing; whereas ornate frames suit more classic or victorian-style rooms.
Wall art is available in a variety of styles, including paint, photographic, and dimensional using wood, canvas, metal, glass, and more. Take advantage of these styles to enhance your desired décor in the room.
Ultimately, decide what works best for you and your space. Happy Decorating!
