Interior Design Tips: How to Use Art to Create the Perfect Space



Abstract and Modern Art and How You Can Use it to Create the Perfect Room

 

 

So much time and effort is put into choosing the perfect wall color, flooring style and type, fixtures, and furniture layout with the art choices being the very last consideration, if it is considered at all. But, art can bring together an entire room if enough careful thought is put into choosing the perfect piece before any other aspect of the room is considered.

 

Let’s look at some benefits to considering wall art:

 

COLOR SCHEME

 

If you have ever been to a home improvement or paint store then you know the struggle of trying to pick out the perfect colors. By choosing wall art that you love first you can make design choices that fit best.

 

FOCUS

 

Every room needs a central focal point that draws your gaze when you first enter. Savvy designers will choose the perfect piece of art that will inspire the imagination and start conversations.

 

FINISHED LOOK

 

My first apartment in college we never decorated the walls at all. It never felt like home and the décor never felt finished or polished in any way. Looking back now, I realize how sad it is that we never hung artwork and made the apartment a home.

 

Choose your artwork carefully and with love. Choose it because it speaks to you and will help you to create your own perfect space.

 

INTEREST

 

The biggest disservice that you can do to your space is to add boring art! Meaning that you should not just something and call it “good enough.”

 

Decide what overall feel you want the room to have when you are finished. Are you looking for a cozy atmosphere or do you prefer a modern look with clean lines?

 

For interesting abstract and modern art for any budget – straight from the artist – go to http://www.facetimeart.com
