1. Should The Picture Dominate The Interior? Or Should It Rather Be Its Complement?
Certainly, you can let the pictures take over the interior. However, this is not recommended in a case of standard residential interiors. You can only let the image take over the interior when the owner shares some affinity with the image. By this, we mean that the owner is very connected with the image. This means that the image will always evoke positive emotion and can never get boring especially for the owner after a period of time. On any other day, you should allow paintings act as a complement to the interior. You should use your paintings to add character to the interior. This is exactly what paintings are for. If you want to buy a new painting, it means you have an internal need to add new energy to your living space. Painting can help you create the type of emotion you want to evoke when someone steps into your living space. Personally, I am an advocate of choosing art that changes the character of the interior.
Arts can also be used as a supplement in an elevator, hotel room or even the library. Good/interesting arts can be used in these places to keep the eyes busy during a waiting time. Since these places usually accommodate people with different taste in art, you should endeavour to choose an art that looks nice and appeal to most people. When placing an art in your interior, make sure you choose an art that can evoke emotion. This is that arts are made for – to evoke positive emotions. Additionally, arts should be matched to the temperament of the hosts and their taste. Hence, it is very important to choose the art that creates the right balance between the art and the rest of the rooms. This will help you create a relationship between the interior, the image, and the inhabitants.
2. How To Choose Wall Art For The Interior: What Should We Take Into Consideration When Purchasing The Wall Art?
Your utmost priority when choosing a picture is the thrill you feel when you see that picture. Ask yourself, will you still be thrilled if you look at this same picture next morning? I will recommend you trust your intuition on this. However, only choose a picture that you genuinely love and one that “moves” you. You will easily establish a relationship with the art if you feel connected to it. The next thing you need to consider is the context – does the colour match your interior? Are the dimensions proportional to the space you have in mind for the picture? They say good art defends itself. However, it is your job to lend it some help. Note that your painting must have a background, a breath that will allow it to exist. Make sure that the painting is not hidden in any way whether fully or partly behind the curtain. You should also avoid hanging it too high or pressed into a corner. Doing so will make your image lost its attraction.
After making these considerations and it becomes obvious that the image won’t match your interior, you should look for another image or consider placing the image in a different place where it will be perfect especially when you are in love with the picture. Alternatively, you can consider changing your interior design at least in the vicinity of the image to match the image.
You must also consider the type of emotion you want to evoke when choosing a wall art – whether you want to add energy, tone down or give breath to your space, you must make these considerations before purchasing your wall art. Looking for energetic colours and expressive lines when you want to add energy to your room or consider getting paintings with expressive and calm lines when you want to tone down your living space or create a calm atmosphere and emotion. On the other hand, you can use a wall art with depth to create an extra space. If you want your art to “come out” of the wall, you don’t need to consider depth when choosing the image.
3. Are There Recommended Motifs Of Modern Painting That Will Fit Into The Living Room And Will Be An Ideal Gift?
All graphics are definitely going to work well since they can be easily adapted to the interior. Personally, I would recommend you look for decisive works with a strong line and clear colours. You can also use collages to make your space look sophisticated. However, I would recommend that you stay away from portraits – not everyone likes to see a creepy stranger staring at them from the wall. Landscape art may also not be the best idea. If you don’t have any idea of what will be outside the window, it is better you enjoy the natural views just the way it is.
