Knowing how to choose artwork for your home can have a major impact on a room, however when it comes to designing interiors, too often artwork is treated as an afterthought.
Consider the following before purchasing your next piece:
- Choose art to suit a particular space in your home – Knowing what overall ambiance you are aiming to achieve helps when creating a bespoke selection, and the relationship between the artwork and its surroundings plays a central role when designing the desired atmosphere.
- Consider the room’s color scheme – The artwork’s palette can either match, contrast or redefine the tones of its surroundings.
- Consider the lighting – Keep artwork away from natural light as this can cause the colors to fade over time.
Federica Barretta, director at Opera Gallery London, advises that one should choose artwork that speaks to you, moves you, makes you dream, and inspires you.
Apart from buying art as a collector, one can also buy art to celebrate an occasion giving it more meaning so that when you look at it, you are reminded of the happy event, whether it is a key birthday, a wedding, or a smashed target at work.
