If you’re an artist, choosing art for your home is easy, but since most of us are not, this can prove to be difficult. Here are a few tips on making sure that choosing the art on your apartment turns out to be a masterpiece more than a mess.
Discover your personal Style-Many of us have never think about what our personal art style is. Some homes have a classical feel while others prefer a modern look. It is important to find what you like. One idea is to take a few hours visit a museum that incorporates all art styles. Chances are, you will find a piece or an artist that you like and the museum gift shop is a great place to find prints that you can have framed. Buying prints are a great way to incorporate great works of art into your living space and finding the right frame can pull a room together.
Don’t be afraid of color-Chances are, when you’ve redesigned your apartment or condo, you kept your walls white or a similar shade, meaning your artwork will add color to any room. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color. Whether it’s a creating your own do-it-yourself piece or splashing an accent wall, color can instantly brighten up a room or make a smaller room look larger.
Relocation is key-If you have found the perfect piece of art but it just does not look right on the wall you have chosen. It’s okay to move your pieces around. What doesn’t look right in your living room might be perfect in the dining room. The lighting in your home or townhome will most likely vary from room to room, making each piece look different.
Bringing artwork into a home can be a hard task, if you don’t know where to start. So take a good friend and a camera and start walking around, you never know where you will find the best art for your apartment.
