How To Incorporate Art Into Your Living Decor
To incorporate art into your living room you want to begin by finding your focal point. Walk into the room and being able to identify where your eyes land first. A living room is the perfect place for a statement art piece, and you can base the rest of the room’s design on it. This can be as easy as picking out one of the secondary colors in your central piece of artwork and streaming it throughout the room. For instance, an accent pillow here, a lampshade there. The theme doesn’t have to take over the design, but it will help the eye connect all the pieces in the room, and create a unifying statement in your design.
Choose colors based on the mood you want to set in each room. For example, gray is calming, so consider basing your bedroom design or theme on different gradients of gray. Yellow sets a welcoming, cheerful mood, so a piece of artwork that has a bright yellow hue is perfect for the living room. Furthermore, works that scream with red or orange are amazing in the dining room, and will spark lively discussions between dinner guests.
When in doubt never limit yourself to just one piece of art. Hanging up different prints can in fact add a very artistic touch to your living room. You’re very own at-home gallery curated by you, that’s definitely going to be an icebreaker. Be sure to go with matching frames for a more cohesive look to your collection of prints.
