Look around at the walls of your home, what do you see? Do you have empty walls just begging for something to be hung on them? If this is the case, you really should do some art shopping.
Art on your walls can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your home. When it comes to decorating with art you don’t really have to worry about what goes with what either, just pick pieces that speak to you. Here are some tips.
Where To Buy Art
There are a million places where you can buy art, from the internet to brick and mortar buildings. You could look for a local gallery, or travel to a gallery that you really like. You could even peruse art shows, like art in the park events. You can also find art at garage sales and in resale shops.
If online shopping is your thing, there are plenty of options. Etsy is a great place to find a lot of unique and one-of-a-kind art pieces.
How To Pick Art
There are many ways you can pick art, as well. You can simply choose art that goes with the color scheme of a particular room in your home. However, since art is subjective it really doesn’t need to match anything.
You can pick art simply by buying pieces that make you feel a specific emotion. or, you can just buy art that looks good to you.
Where To Put Your Art
Hang your art in any room that you want, just remember that some rooms can cause damage to artwork. The bathroom can have a lot of condensation when the shower is used, which can ruin art. Kitchens often come with a lot of grease, which can also ruin art.
Hang art in rooms where people can see it, if you want to share the pieces and have them be conversation pieces. Hang them in more private room if they are simply for your eyes and enjoyment only.
Consider Making Your Own
You don’t have to buy art in order to decorate your home with some. You can always make your own. If you have children, consider framing their artwork and hanging it around your home.
You can create any type of art your heart desires, or that you want to have visible in your home. Paint on large or small canvases, make collage art, or just paint a mural on the wall if you own your own home.
Art can make your home a more attractive and creatively inspiring place. It can add color, and it also gives people something to talk about if you host parties or have guests over very often.
