Trends are always going to play a part in your interior choices in regards to both soft and hard furnishings especially inside luxury homes. However art is an area of decoration that is more carefully considered as it’s often a piece that moves with you throughout your life.
Art can change the aesthetic of a room in an instant and there are so many choices in direction to take. There are mod pop showpieces, moody landscape photography or sophisticated canvas painting as well as the decision of whether you’d like framed or unframed, a large dominant piece or a cluster of smaller collections.
In an architect designed home, art can anchor a room and provide you with inspiration as to what colours to use in the furniture and accessories. You can either use a colour or two from the artwork to act as a guide for choosing these items or use a contrasting pallet for extra wow factor. We recommend avoiding being too matching and introduce neutrals to balance out the overall feel.
Calming colours are quite popular in bedrooms like blues, greys, aquas and mauves however it’s really up to your personal preference. Vibrant colours can look fabulous in a neutral scheme, especially if there is a lot of wall space available.
As a general rule, the artwork shouldn’t be larger than the piece of furniture you’re hanging it above. However, if your art is a piece to compliment a striking item of furniture or architectural feature in the room, you may decide to opt for something smaller or a collection of complimentary pieces.
