When styling your home, you want it to have some personality that reflects you. A lot of homeowners will forget to add art to their home, and art really transforms a space. Here are some tips for dressing your home with art.
Pick A Style
No art is ever really wrong, and it’s all about what style you enjoy. When it comes to art, it must emote something positive from you. So whether you like simple pencil sketches or maybe something more traditional like an oil painting. Whatever you go for, you want to pick a style and to ensure that it reflects the rest of the property. You don’t want to go for something that’s completely different the overall theme of your home. It’ll look mismatched, and that’s the last thing that you want. You may want to pick a different style for each room!
Group Art Together
It’s worth it to get creative with your artwork, so don’t just keep to a singular piece of artwork. Look at how you can group it together to create collages or shapes on your walls. By grouping artwork together, you create in itself, a new piece of art which you have created yourself. If you’re after some affordable art, then you can buy art online and find some wonderful deals.
There are plenty of ways to group art, and if you need some inspiration, then look on social media and search the hashtags that are relevant.
Art doesn’t just have to be painting, but it can also be photos. Photographs around your home can add a personal touch and makes your home feel more like it’s yours, rather than something you would find on Pinterest. There’s a lot of companies online where you can turn your photographs into art to and have it in different art formats, whether that’s pop art or cartoon. There’s a lot to play with, thanks to modern technology and what it can do to transform your normal photos into something more fun.
Find Art That Speaks To You
It sounds pretentious, but it’s true that you’ll have art that speaks to you and art that doesn’t. When you walk into an art gallery, there are paintings that look impressive but don’t make you feel anything. Regardless of whether it’s a print that’s been mass-produced or one that’s completely unique and has been commissioned by you, find art that speaks to you and that you can relate to. It doesn’t really matter what others think because, at the end of the day, you’re the one that lives in your home, not your guests.
Art is meant to be personable and related to your tastes, so don’t be afraid to go for something that resonates with you, regardless of what it looks like. You can’t really go wrong when it comes to art, and any art that might not be your guests’ style will certainly spark a chance to debate and talk about it over dinner.
