Helping clients choose art for their homes is one of the fun things about being an Interior Designer. Art is very subjective and personal, over the years I’ve seen so many different pieces of art that appeal to people for many reasons. Art can be an investment, as well as something that lifts your spirit. Art is one of those items that can be the icing on the cake , it can really make a space or room.
One of the first things I encourage clients to do if they aren’t sure what style of art they want for their home, is to have a look around. Naturally certain looks or style of artwork may work better for the style of your home, and I often provide guidance around colour palettes and styles. That said, it’s really important that the artwork appeals to you, after all it will be a centrepiece in your home. Some common questions I ask clients when choosing artwork are; How does it make you feel? Does it stimulate your mind?
In the cover image for this blog my client and I are at Botany Bay Design Solutions, who are a trade supplier of art. Together with the client we selected a stunning painting featuring all the beautiful colours in peacock feathers, and then it was time to select just the right matt board and frame to show off the piece to its best advantage.
Art comes in so many different forms. Here’s just a few types, and the list goes on.
