WHY YOU NEED TO HAVE ART IN YOUR HOME

WHY OUR MODERN MUSEUM ARTWORKS ARE THE PERFECT PIECES FOR YOUR HOME 

Having original or reproduction art in your home is a vital part of decorating and home styling. Art is a core piece of décor for many reasons, yet it is often forgotten about as many people focus on the main furniture pieces and generic décor items such as scatter cushions, carpets and mirrors. You need to have art in your home to incorporate an element of your personality in a unique and artistic way. Wall art is often treated as an afterthought and gets dealt with long after the final staging and setup. But we are here to tell you why that should change and why you are missing out on amazing design opportunities by leaving art off of your walls.
 
When you take time to carefully choose and hand-select art it will instantly transform the atmosphere of the entire room. If you are hesitant to dive right in with abstract originals, try looking for original reproductions that feature colours or themes that you love, and start there.
 

4 REASONS WHY ART SHOULD BE A PART OF YOUR HOME DÉCOR 

ART ADDS TO THE COLOUR PALETTE OF THE ROOM 

When you are choosing a colour palette for your desired artwork and can often be quite daunting as you want it to work well with your existing décor and furniture. When selecting wall art for any room we recommend that you pick two or three shades from your room that you wish to incorporate. Choose the dominant colour, as well as a few additional shades that you’d like to pull out as accents.
 

ART CREATES A FOCAL POINT IN YOUR ROOM 

Every room needs to have a focal point, and having your walls bare draws attention to them, which in turn will take the attention away from the intended item you had originally planned. It goes without saying that adding a great piece of art to your wall will balance out the room and easily fill the empty spaces on your walls. If you find yourself loving a few various art pieces and you cannot choose which is best we recommend creating a classy gallery wall to create your very own “modern museum”.

ART ADDS UNIQUE TEXTURES TO THE ROOM 

Not all artworks are two-dimensional, some feature thick blobs of paint, gel, and various other materials to give them added depth and dimension. If you want to have artwork in your home that adds life to the space and draws people’s attention then textured artworks are the best choice. However, it is important that you consider that rough textures are more likely to make a space feel intimate and grounded while smooth textures bring a sleeker, cleaner feel to your interior space.
 

ART GIVES THE ROOM A COMPLETED FEEL

Negative space can be a good thing in design, but too much can cause your home to look and feel clinical and cold. Wall art is the finishing touch that will help to pull your space together and make it feel complete and homely. Adding artworks to your walls will make your home feel lived in rather than just appearing like a staged home. The key is to select artwork that works well with your aesthetic, style and colour palette and that reflects your personality.

When it comes to interior styling and anything to do with animals, faux or real, there is always a certain level of hesitation.
