One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, "How to choose the right artwork for our bedroom, dining or living room?". There are a few tips to select the right piece of art for a specific space and to define the personality of the homeowner and their space.
The bedroom is your very own place for rest and relaxation. That is why the artwork should create a cosy and calming mood. The main thing is that the atmosphere in the bedroom should be pleasant, and the energy should be positive and strong.
The best walls for pictures are directly over the bed or on the wall opposite the bed. I would recommend to choose large scale pieces. Bigger scale paintings generally look better and should be hung at eye level. A gallery wall is also a great choice. You can look for abstract pieces with soothing colours or tones. If you are into photography, I recommend landscapes or desaturated photos. Try to choose the minimalistic frames or even frameless. A gallery frame, acrylic face mount or canvases work great as well.
You will be surprised, but one of the most commonly forgotten about rooms in terms of artwork is the kitchen. The kitchen is often referred to as the "heart of the home" and in many cases, the most used room of the house. There is no question, art needs to be incorporated here. Space above cupboards, countertops, and shelves - all these places are perfect to try. Choose smaller pieces that complement, but don't overwhelm, the surroundings.
The kitchen looks fantastic with pictures involving culinary themes, but they must also correspond to a certain style. So for a Provence-style kitchen, you can pick paintings in the retro-advertising style of a French bakery, and bright still-life pictures for a more classic interior. I would to go with funny or more social prints to make you smile.
Why does everyone forget that beautiful pictures can also be placed in the bathroom? Of course, there are some nuances you need to remember about, but in general, you just need to pick up a material that is not afraid of moisture, and you can safely fill the bathroom with art.
You should carefully select the place for a picture in the bathroom. Your art piece should harmoniously fit into the space of the room. It’s best to decorate empty walls. Bathroom art looks great in pairs, I recommend to choose a set of two, either stacked or side by side. They can be two of the same abstract pieces with one flipped on its side, or two different pieces that go with the same theme. You can place the art directly above the bathtub, the toilet or above the sink, as long as there is no mirror, or you can use the opposite wall from the mirror so that you can see the picture in the reflection. If it's a powder room, your art should be bright and light.
Very often our workspace is the place where we spend most of our time. That is why people strive to bring elements of individuality, aesthetics and comfort into their working area. And many of them choose art pieces as a decoration for their work space. Whether you work from home or in an office, art is a great way to personalize your space and keep you inspired.
You can use a minimalistic floating shelf installed preferably over your workspace or close to it. The next step is to create a mood board of positive pictures, photos of your beloved ones or works of artists who inspire you. The shelf is a great solution that allows you to change the wall decoration according to your mood easily, without making extra holes in the wall.
As an option, a couple of small nails on the wall over your table and you could hang two beautiful frames side by side. You can have them all in similar frames for a minimalistic look or all different frames to add some character.
Paintings and posters in the living room interior are the perfect finishing touch in creating a truly cozy and atmospheric space. The living room is a place for rest for all family members and for their friends. Choosing the right piece is elemental in provoking conversation and setting the feel or vibe of the space. That is why it is important to make the living room interior pleasant, inspiring and evoking positive emotions. One large-scale piece or a large gallery wall looks great on empty walls over the couch. Art doesn't have to be a piece of print or canvas, sometimes it can take other forms. But no doubts, artworks like no other can add comfort and mood to the interior.
