One of the ways to enhance your interior decor and add personality and style is to introduce paintings, pictures and other similar wall art. They can turn any house into a home and reflect the personality of the property owner. You can tell a lot about a person by their choice of art. Also wall art adds sophistication and style like no other design element.
This, however, does not mean you have to re-mortgage your house in order to buy famous works of art. Reprints of classical paintings can do just as well but at a fraction of the price of the originals. At the end of the day any art is meant to be enjoyed regardless of the price. It doesn’t matter if it costs £10 or £10 million if you like it you should have it. Budget of course plays a big part but there are many options available today however deep (or shallow) your pockets are.
You must take into account your rooms interior when choosing wall art. Make sure the colours in the painting do not clash with the colours of the walls. A good practice is to choose a shade in the painting and paint the wall where it will be hanging a similar shade of that colour. That way the painting will become part of the wall and will blend into your interior seamlessly.
The style of the painting you chose should reflect the environment of the room. For instance, having a large painting or a print in the living dining room will make the room look larger and add class and grandeur. On the other hand, a long but not very high picture above your bed will make the room seem more comfortable and inviting. Many options are available these days. It can be a place you have visited, places you would like to visit, important people in your life or any other thing that means something to you could all be used as a great way to turn your house into your home.
In the kitchen pictures of tasty dishes and steaming coffee or tea could be very effective. It’s best to position them at an eye level for maximum effect. One thing to keep in mind though, is that you should never place paintings under direct sunlight. The colours can fade away and the painting will be ruined.
