Tips for Matching Custom Art with Your Home DecorBeautiful art work will refresh the way your home looks, but to make the most of the décor possibilities offered by custom art, you need to choose art that matches your home environment or to create the link between your existing items and the new piece of artwork – here is how:
- Pick a piece that delights you – whether it is a piece of original art created by your favorite painter, a picture that you have painted and are proud of or some reproduction of your favorite work of art, choosing an item that makes you happy when you look at it is very important. If you surround yourself with things you love, not only will your home be a peaceful happy haven for you, it will also reflect YOU!
- Matching the shapes and colors in the artwork to your existing decoration and furniture – the artwork that you choose does not have to match the curves and lines of your other items, but it should blend in harmoniously. The same goes for colors – they don’t need to be the same, but they need to be matching.
- Contrast and balance – you can use contrasting elements to create a focal point in your room as well. A predominantly white setting can benefit a lot from the complexity of an elaborate painting and rustic settings can harmoniously integrate minimalist pieces.
