How to choose the right art for a room?
No matter how gorgeous the interior design and furnishings are, any room with bare walls often feels incomplete. A beautiful artwork visually helps to create a feeling of movement and transformation of living space and can be a starting point to define the color scheme and match the rags, lamps and curtains. Art pieces help to create a truly finished look.
Find a right artwork for your house walls is a challenge. Whether you decide to make this journey by yourself or benefit from the services of an expert, use our 5 tips for choosing the right art for every room in your home:
Trust your guts and let your feelings guide you
If you do not buy art for investment do not check on the art market trends while looking for an art piece. Your house is the reflection of your personality and no one knows you better then yourself. Buy something that you are truly attracted because it is something that will ultimately stand the test of time. Luckily today there are plenty of sources, both online and in brick and mortar shops.
Or trust professionals
If your search for an artwork from pleasure turned into stress, delegate the duty to an art consultant. If you want to brighten your interior and make a good investment trust a consultant. Here in GRINEV art gallery we are used to ask the right questions to help you make the right choice. It is your treasure hunt, professionals just help with logistics.
Define the tone
Before you select your art, decide whether you want it to be complementary object or the central element of your interior design. Don’t forget about basic rules of coloristics : light and bright colors give off a casual feel, particularly on raw unframed canvas. Whereas a framed piece with images featuring distinct lines and structure in darker colors will create a more formal tone. Sometimes the colors of the artwork you choose can be the direct opposite of what you already have in your room, or in some cases you might want something that’s only monochrome. In this case the right frame might help to link the artwork with the furnishing. We encourage our artists to sell their artworks unframed. And we are on hand to connect you with our local partners if you need help with framing.
Select the style
The artwork you select to decorate your walls is a very personal choice. Do not rush into it to avoid impulsive decisions. Set up some criteria like genre, color scheme and size. If you find something that fit them, sleep on it and see it again after one or two days. GRINEV art gallery offers 7 days of cooling period to make sure that you made the best choice.
Choose the right size
It may sound controversial, but if you have a small room, one big piece of art can make a room seem and feel bigger. Lots of smaller pieces can be perfect for a gallery wall. Especially if it is hard for you to focus on one particular style. Feel free to mix a variety of artworks representing a range of media, from photographs to drawings, mixed in with personal mementos like children’s artwork or prints.
