Have you ever wanted to invest in artwork for your home, but are at a loss as to what styles, colours and subjects to choose?
In this post I will try and give you a few ideas and help boost your confidence about choosing a suitable piece of art for your walls. Don't be scared, if you stick to a few of these simple rules, your home will look super impressive and you will have some fantastic pieces of art for that all important talking point for your dinner parties!
What colour walls go with what colours in paintings?
In an art gallery, artworks are most often seen displayed on 'gallery white' walls, this is to try and display each piece with no distractions or influences. This does make it very hard however to try and visualise what an artwork might look like in a domestic setting.
Keep it Neutral
In the horse world there is such a thing as 'Matchy Matchy'. This is where die hard equestrian fashionistas choose matching outfits and accessories for themselves and their horses, so that they look and feel completely at one and coordinated whilst they school their horses for 20 minutes...usually at home, with no-one to see their efforts apart from a few disgruntled liveries and a couple of old crows..that's the bird's by the way, not the decrepid and grumpy neighbouring farmers wife.
Anyway I digress, there is such a thing as matching your artwork with features, objects or colours within the room, and it can look very effective indeed.
Repeat Repeat Repeat
I hope this has given you some pointers about choosing works of art for your own walls. Why not take a look in my shop at my original art for sale, prints which can be framed in a choice of colours, or how about commission your own work of art from a photo or a selection of photos. Horses and dog paintings are my speciality but I really enjoy a challenge and would really love to create for you, something that you have always dreamed of.
