Selecting Artwork

When you move into your new house, the most exciting thing is to decorate the house, to make it the house of your dreams. While decorating you will decorate the walls of the house you would like to make them look beautiful but unique. One way of decorating the walls is to hang works of art on the walls. You can either buy originals or reproductions depending on your budget. Selecting art for your house is not an easy task. Here are a few pointers on selecting art for your home.

  • Art works make a statement about the kind of person you are. So when you select art it should be because you love it and not because it matches your sofa or carpet.
  • Art should be bought for its own value and nothing else.
  • Buy art that you can enjoy for a long time. Buy something that you will not get bored of in a short time.
  • The artwork should create the mood of the room and everything in the room should compliment it and not the other way round.
  • You will be attracted to artwork that seem to perfectly fit your home and to colors and themes that interest you. If your house is decorated in a traditional fashion then you will be attracted to traditional paintings. If it is decorated in a contemporary style you will be attracted to contemporary paintings.
  • By talking to the owners of art galleries and interior decorators you can get suggestions on how to select and appreciate artwork.
  • Use picture light for artwork, it will highlight the work and set the mood in the room.
