Interior Design Guide
There are several factors to consider when choosing artwork for your home or bedroom, and these factors are often interrelated,
so I think it’s best to divide them into categories for simplicity.
The Composition and the Room: This is a great place to start. There are certain types of compositions that are best fitted to certain rooms.
For example, when I think of the kitchen I think of fruits and vegetables, chefs, wine bottles, etc.
When I think of the bedroom I think passion, softness and perhaps botanical, like a large rose picture.
When I consider the bathroom I might visualize images that portray a clean, fresh, good smelling idea.
Yes, it is ideal when the images we choose help the mood of the room in 2020.
Another consideration with composition involves the application of more than one image in an area.
When several pictures carry a common theme a very different feel is given to the room.
Color considerations include the walls, furniture, carpeting, window treatments or draperies, trim molding, and other room enhancements.
The colors in a room should complement one another. An art piece with a well-balanced array of color can tie a room together.
If a room is empty I like to choose the art first and then the furniture. Usually, people do the reverse, however, choosing the art first makes sense when you think about it.
To illustrate, how often does someone walk into a room and say, hat ottoman is majestic! It just takes my breath away !?
However, that can happen with a well-chosen piece of art. Often, art will be the showpiece of a room.
So, rather than let the furnishings dictate what your art will look like, allow the art to dictate what kind of furniture you’ll choose.
2 Space: This can be tricky.
For example, your stove is one foot high, half high, and four feet wide.
It may be difficult to find an image to fill this space. However, you can use three similar types of images.
I might choose three 8 x 10 size grape images placed vertically. Another challenging space could be a very large wall or a vaulted ceiling room.
In both cases, image grouping usually solves the problem of 2020. I also saw very large photos, 4 x 8 feet tall, bigger and worked well.
Of course, such a large piece of art is proportionally more expensive.
3 Genres and personal preferences:
Maybe there is an artwork that you particularly like,
but it conflicts with the style and architecture of your house, or it may not match the color scheme of the room you want to place.
I have seen people change the color of the walls and accents of the room to suit the art.
After all, I think the real question about art is, will the art I choose to make a smile on my face and on the faces of the people who live here?
If we can say “yes”, then everything else is just a rough frame when choosing artwork.
