Beauty in Display: Tips for Selecting an Open Art Work That Shines in Your Showcase

Choosing artwork for your house is not just about putting up a fancy interior. More than everything else, it's about making the place actually feel like home. Especially when it comes to open-ended artworks, they go far beyond what you see in the frame. They are thought-provoking and can inspire endless imaginations. 

However, many of us often find it intimidating to choose the perfect artwork that goes along with the rest of the interior. If you are also someone going through the same struggles, then we are here to save your day. Here are some tips that can help you pick artworks you will want to come back to every day. 

Fall in Love With the Art

When you pick an artwork for your personal space, the primary requirement is to pick something you love. The right artwork can set up the entire mood of the space, inspire you and move you in many different ways. So choose a piece that goes with your personal taste, reflects your personality and speaks to you. 

Design Your Space Around It

Most people often choose the artwork as the final touch to a room, which can often go wrong. If you are designing the place from scratch, build the design keeping the artwork as a base. This will make sure the artwork enhances the look of the rest of the decor by complimenting it and not competing with it. 

When in Confusion, Go For Timeless Pieces

If you are a novice in picking artwork for your house, pick a folk art piece. They are timeless art pieces that never go out of fashion. If you are looking for artwork in warm color tones, Madhubani paintings can be a great choice with their vibrant color tones. For minimalistic choice, Warli artworks are quite popular because of their limited colors and intricate designs. 

Don’t Blow Your Budget

Just because you have exquisite taste, doesn’t mean you need to burn a hole in your pocket to find the perfect piece, You can often find artwork on a reasonable budget by visiting local artisans or art fairs in your city. If you want to own famous artworks under a budget, look for artists whose work is inspired by the original art. 

Consider the Surroundings in Advance

Instead of buying an artwork and then deciding where to hang it, reverse the process. Pick the space where you want to put an artwork first. This will give you an idea of the dimensions you should look for. Also take into consideration the walls and furniture, color and theme of the space so that everything looks balanced. For example, for minimal furniture around, you can pick a large artwork and make it the focal point of the room.

Decide on the Mood 

Just because it is your house, don’t make the blunder of putting anything just anywhere. Choose the artwork according to the mood you want to set the space with. Living rooms and other shared spaces often compliment large artworks with warmer tones. Whereas artwork with cooler color tones brings a sense of serenity and can help you boost productivity. It goes without saying that such pieces are a better choice for study rooms or office spaces where you mostly work. As for bedrooms, look for something with emotional values.       

 Take Time to Select An Artwork

An artwork can truly make or break the interiors of a space. If you are still new, don’t dive headfirst into making impulsive purchases that you will regret later. Instead, take some time to understand different styles of painting and then shop for them in person. Buying art pieces in person gives you a much clearer picture than purchasing them online.
