Although it may seem like a fine detail, art is one of the most important parts of designing a good interior. Creativity and personally is everything when designing a good room, but sometimes those personal touches can be drowned out by other features of a room.
So, how do you make the most of the art that you love? A simple way to make your pictures and paintings immediately attract any pair of eyes worth their salt is to make them larger. Bold and large art features such as sculptures, murals and even large paintings are all the rage right now. So why not get experimenting and collect some style points while you’re at it? We’re loving quirky large artwork or paintings against bland walls for the ultimate statement. Renting? Not a problem, there’s tonnes of fun and stylish options for even the most pristine building out there. If you’re struggling to find the large print of your dreams, make your own. Have a go at a canvas or at the wall, or even take your own photographs and have them blown up by a professional print shop.
If you’ve already got some much loved artwork, but it’s no longer having the bang you want it to have for new visitors, no need to part with your beloved art- there’s options. The simplest way to spruce up an old piece of art is just to move it, it may look massively better on the other side of the room- or it could need a new room to show off it’s best bits. Fresh frames are also great for giving art a new leash on life. If the traditional frame isn’t quite doing it for you, try a nice fancy thick gold frame to catch both light and attention. If there’s nothing quite perfect, make your own. Paint, shape and cut the perfect frame for only a few pennies!
