Choosing Art for Your Home
Choosing art for your home can be a daunting task. The reason it can be so overwhelming is it is a costly purchase that you will have on your walls for years to come, and if you end up not loving it - it could be a source of agitation based on the wasted money. So there are a few things to consider before you go out and purchase that beautiful wall art.
The first and most important thing to consider when choosing art for your home is the color of your art. The color of the item should loosely match the color of your room, but it does not need to match exactly. Think about tones here, for example if your room is mostly earth tones then your art should have at least some earth tones in it.
The second thing when choosing are for your home is size of the item. When placed on the wall there should be space around it, it should not look crowded, but it should also not be too spaced out. The best thing to do before you go shopping is measure out a space on your wall with a tape measure. Know the dimensions of the space you need to fill before purchasing.
Frame colors and textures. The framing of your art print or canvas art item is almost as important as the print itself. If you have a large rich colorful art print be sure not to get too skinny of a frame, spend a little extra money on that thick rich looking frame, it will be worth it in the long run when you have to look at that art everyday.
