Selecting artwork is high on our list of favorite things to do! Nothing ties your home’s interior together as quickly, and easily, as artwork with its color palette, mood, style and subject matter. But how do you select art for your entire home? Where do you start?
We often see an unfortunate “Big Box Store Abstract” art theme repeat itself throughout a home, and while we understand that art selection can be dauntingly difficult, that is a look you will tire of quickly. However, there is a process to selecting art with many factors to consider – the available space, the nearby furnishings, the best size and shape, the subject matter, the frame, the colors, the mood – and finally, how each individual piece works with the others to create the desired look throughout your home.
Take a look at a few of our projects, and some of the art that we used in each to create the intended feel of the home!
