While there’s nothing quite like an afternoon spent in a museum filled with classic art, or an enjoyable evening at your local art gallery perusing the creations of current artists, there’s another favorable way to get more art into your life: right at home!
Get ready to take a virtual tour of your new favorite pieces of art. By the end of this post, you may even be ready to bust out the paint and create some of your very own.
Photos of family and friends, heart-warming decor, and trinkets filled with memories often adorn shelves and cabinets around the house. However, when it comes to art, many folks feel intimidated or unsure where to start. Our best tip? Find pieces that make you feel happy! Choose art with color palates you enjoy. Also, make sure you want to look at the art you choose every day, as it will be featured prominently in your home.
Another fun way to utilize art in your interior design is to select a painting and then plan the entire room around that piece. What a neat way to get a jump start on spaces that have you feeling stuck. Consider using art in unexpected places, such as the guest bathroom. Consider framing your grandchild’s drawings for their new big kid room or your own home office.
While framed paintings or prints are traditional, remember that art comes in all sorts of forms including statues and paper and wire creations. You may find your favorite art in the form of chandeliers, furniture, or even planters. It doesn’t matter the materials so long as it speaks to you.
