Art is all around us – in nature, buildings, galleries, homes, offices, and many other places. For art lovers, no space is complete without some form of art. Many art lovers are constantly on the lookout for new ideas to improve their homes and work spaces.
Here are some interior design ideas for art lovers that will lend a unique and trendy look to your space.
Repetition of Colour and Patterns
This idea might seem a little old-fashioned, but with the right color scheme, it can really have a positive effect on the interior of your house. You should try to add strong colors such black and white to your home through décor that will stand out from every corner of the room. However, if your home has more of a modern feel, that looks quite clinical then I’d suggest you opt for brighter décor that will add a nice feature to your room that attracts the attention of visitors. This doesn’t have to be limited to the wallpaper or things like canvas paintings as you could also experiment with throws, curtains, and pillows to create a similar effect. Repetition of a particular design can add a maze like feel to your house, but with the right design, it could instead make your home look elegant and classy.
If you are thinking of adding artwork and canvas paintings to your home for that extra touch, shop for prints that will suit your décor theme or color scheme. Keep your options wide open by browsing art collections that feature designs across all subjects. For example, online marketplaces have some museum-quality canvas paintings that range from abstract art to landscapes and for a more personal touch; you can even create your own by uploading your own photos.
Balance Your Colour Scheme
It’s important to balance your color scheme when it comes to artwork and furniture. For example, if you have a black and red painting, a black sofa with just a little bit of red on it will look aesthetically appealing. This is a great way of balancing your color scheme. At times, your painting might be overshadowed by the bright colors of your furniture and curtains, but keeping your furniture neutral or in similar shades will make your artwork really stand out.
Combine Works of Art
Many people have started combining works of art to create a unique look. This can also help you create a contrast between two different paintings. Together, they can create a stronger focal point for your room. Rather than having a different style of paintings, have similar looking paintings that carry a specific theme or tone that you are going for. For instance, you could use two abstract paintings following a similar color pattern.
When designing a house, placement of your artwork is extremely important. However, the placement of your furniture around the artwork is equally crucial. The furniture and artwork should always complement each other.
Adding mirrors to a room can make it feel more spacious and bright. For one, it adds a positive vibe to the place. More importantly, by adding mirrors to your wall and ceiling, you can make your artwork appear brighter and bring attention to specific areas in the room. It is a technique used by various galleries and even by collectors who want to show off their collection of artwork.
Lastly, do not forget to experiment. Interior design trends are constantly changing and art lovers should experiment with new and different ideas. As an art lover, you have the freedom to explore and think creatively and out the box to suit your personal style.
However, it’s also important not to crowd your walls with art pieces. Keep it simple and you can turn your home into a heaven for art lovers like you.
