Picking artwork for home, an art

18 June 2014


Life Desk :
So you have just moved into a new house and after painting the walls and placing all your furniture, you notice that something is still missing. A home is a reflection of you - your personality and state of mind and everyone wants to come home to a comfortable and beautiful space. Most of the beautiful homes are characterised by a unique art collection. Empty walls give the illusion that a home is empty and barely occupied, so why not add some colour and style by investing in some art work.
The most important aspect to take into consideration is the amount of wall space that you have. The ideal place for paintings are a living room but you may want to add some in your bedroom as well. Depending on the amount of space available, choose a painting. You don't want one that overshadows the entire wall, nor do you want very tiny ones. Either choose one big piece or a couple of small ones that are part of the same series and go together, reports TOI.
Don't think getting some art work means spending big bucks. Yes, you may have to shell out much for one of the top artist's works but you can easily choose something cheaper. If originals seem too expensive, why not frame up a reproduction. You can even try and attain prints of your favourite artists' works.
Remember art is quite personal. So don't randomly select a piece just because it goes with the colour of your window curtains. Choose something that is meaningful to you, that inspires or calms you. Try to look it as something that you will keep with you for years. You want to select pieces that you will love and your close ones will appreciate.
No matter what artwork appeals to you, keep in mind also the theme of your home. If you have a very traditional Indian style home with traditional sculptures and carpets, you may want something that goes with the theme. A print of one of Vincent Van Gogh or Monet's work will look totally out of place.
