Choosing the right artwork for your living room can sometimes be a hard decision to make. The artwork should complement your space in a way that when you enter your living room you feel that this piece belongs here and nowhere else. To help you with your choice, here are some tips on how to choose the right artwork for your living room.
Pay Attention To The Colors.
It may be obvious, but sometimes we forget the most important things. Colors are the number one thing you should pay attention to when choosing artwork for your living room. You may think that by saying that we mean colors matching. Yes, color matching is one perfectly acceptable method to choose artwork, there are many other different approaches as well. Sometimes, you may choose artwork with colors the complete opposite of your living room colors. Some people prefer their artwork to be black and white. The bottom line is, it does not matter what color pallet you are going to follow, what matters is that when you choose an artwork, choose the one with the colors that complement your space perfectly.
Consider The Size of The Artwork.
When choosing artwork, do not go for the bigger or smaller choice without knowing the dimensions of your living room and furniture. One of the most common mistakes that happen when choosing artwork is choosing an artwork too small for the room. Generally speaking, for the living room area, artwork that you would hang on the wall space over a sofa should be 2/3 the width of the sofa or larger than that. However, that rule can be bend as well. For example, you can hang several small pieces to work together in one display. One trick to increase the size of an artwork is to frame it in an extra-large matte to visually increase its size.
Try Mixing Artworks.
When you look for artwork for your living room. Do not constraint yourself into choosing from a certain type or catalog. What keeps the living room exciting is the contrast in it. Art plays a huge part in creating that contrast and excitement. So, consider choosing artworks from different eras and put them together. That way you can create a robust and compelling collection for your living room. If your furniture in the living room is classical, then a modern artwork piece can create a beautiful focal point.
Look for Original Artwork.
When choosing artwork for your living room, try to choose an original one. By choosing an original artwork, not only you make your living room unique, but also, you make your place more vibrant and lovely. When a guest comes to visit you they will fall in love immediately with your artwork. For your living room we recommend a piece called “Illusion”. It comes in the size of 100 x 70 cm, which is perfect for your living room. Moreover, it is made from vibrant colors (Blue, Red, Gold, Black, White) that would bring vibrancy to your living room.
