Art is a simple and effective way to inject colour and personality into a space. It can also set the mood for a room, tell a story and ignite conversation. From oil paintings and sculpture to photography and textiles, the options are infinite when it comes to choosing artworks. However, there are a few key things to consider when choosing a piece to ensure it suits your space and style perfectly.

 

  • Colour

Colour is integral when it comes to choosing art and it can influence the entire look and feel of a room. Think about whether you want the artwork to be the main attraction or a complementary piece and then plan how this will work in with the existing space.

A bold piece can make a huge impact in a space that is in need of some colour, especially when it’s tied in with other styling finishes such as cushions and throws in the same colour. If you’re wanting your art to stand out, try pairing a warm-toned piece with cooler toned decor. If you’re choosing artwork for a space that is already filled with colour, consider a more subtle piece for balance.

  • Size

Size matters when it comes to art. If artwork is too big or too small it can either overwhelm a room or leave it feeling incomplete. However, according to many interior designers, larger pieces generally tend to work better in most spaces. Alternatively, grouping several smaller pieces into one display can also work well. If you’re concerned about if a piece of art will be too big or too small in your space, try using masking tape to outline the perimeter of the piece’s dimensions. This will give you an idea of whether the piece will work and is particularly handy when purchasing art online.

  • Frame

Not every artwork needs a frame, however they can often add that little something extra to a piece. For example, if you have a clean, uncluttered piece, an ornate frame can dress it up and add  grandeur for a quirky touch. Thin metal frames can also work well for bolder pieces and earthy woods can warm up a cooler toned piece.
