How to choose art in the interior

Your home is your castle. And so it is said not in vain, because the house is the place where a person rests not only physically, but also morally. And in order to make the interior as cozy and comfortable as possible, you must also remember the objects of art. But before you buy a painting or sculpture in your home and then you should not regret about this purchase, you must follow a few simple rules.

First of all, you need to understand that the object of art should give positive emotions, decorate the interior, and in any case not to annoy and not disturb you. Therefore, you should not choose too large a sculpture or a painting for an apartment, which will only make the room even smaller and put pressure on you. But also it is not necessary to hang a very small picture on a large wall, which will simply be lost in space. Therefore, the first rule: it is necessary to respect the scale and proportions.

Rule two: the subject of art should be in harmony with the style of your furniture. It should be understood that modern art looks ugly with a classic interior, as well as oil painting will be inappropriate in high-tech interior.

Rule three: before you choose a picture you need to understand what kind of room you are going to hang it. For example, a colorful, appetizing still life is best for dining, for a bedroom – landscapes, as well as paintings that depict paired animals, the living room will be beautifully decorated with a picture of flowers painted in oil, or family portraits, for offices, pictures of ships, animals.

Rule Four says that the picture must also be selected according to the color scheme of your interior. Experienced designers recommend creating a certain contrast between the so-called “dominant” color of the interior and the picture. After all, a work of art should be a bright accent of the room, and not just merge with the whole room.

The fifth rule concerns those who do not want to be content with just one painting in the room. If you want to decorate a room with several paintings, then you should remember that there should be no more than 3-4 of them. Also, the pictures should be interconnected by some common theme, to be supposedly a continuation of one another, so to say “tell” one story.

Perhaps the most basic rule is that you like an art object. After all, each picture is the creation of the artist’s hands, in which he put his heart and soul, and it is very important that there is an emotional connection between the picture and you.

Therefore, when buying or ordering a picture you should not hurry, you need to consider all possible options and choose what really suits your interior, style, room size and most importantly will be to your liking.
