What really differentiates one house from another are the details. Having the right piece of art in each room, is the element that will change the décor and fill it with magic. But how do you find the gem that will change everything? Here are a few things to keep in mind, as you go about buying art, for your home.
Start with Art
There is no better way to provide full value to an art piece, then by making it the central theme of the room. In other words, instead of buying a painting to complete the décor, buy it first, and recreate the whole room around it, afterwards. This is truly the only way you can be certain not to go the wrong way. First, because you will be choosing the painting that you like, instead of the one that “fits in,” and secondly you will be growing the artwork into the room, instead of implanting it. This will show in the end, as emotions will take over.
Shop Art Online
Today, you have infinite possibilities when it comes to buying art. Gone are the days when you had to visit galleries around the world, in order to find paintings that you want to position inside your house. You can now buy art online, by visiting those same galleries e-boutiques, over the internet. This really opens-up a whole new world of possibility. Although you won’t get to feel the full emotion of looking at it up-close, you will certainly discover new styles of paintings that you like, as you hop along, from one galley to another. Once you have determined the artwork of your choice, you should contact the gallery and make sure it is still available. If so, let them know you will be coming to look at it and ask them to put a hold on its sale. We suggest that you check out San Francisco art galleries, as it is filled with incredible pieces. Plus, you will get to visit one of the most interesting cities in America.
Choose Powerful Artworks
If you really want your house to have an attitude, you need to choose strong, meaningful artworks. Not only will people ask about them, when they walk in the room (which will be flattering and you can let yourself talk about your favourite artists for a while), but they will literally awake the house. In that sense, you should also look for artworks with dynamic colours, in order to create life inside the four walls it will be resting in.
Let the Artwork be a Source of Inspiration
The subject and the colours used on the artwork, should also be represented inside the room. As an example, let’s say that the painting shows a beach. It should definitely influence the colours found on the walls as well. There is a large palette that can be used, depending on which way you want to continue to tell the story; blue for the sky, green for the grass, or more of the sandy colour, to dream your days away.
