One of the easiest ways to make your home truly self-expressive is to fill it with artwork you love and have collected over time. Very few things are more telling of someone’s personality than the art they have in their home. Art is such a personal thing. Buy what stirs an emotion. I think people worry too much about whether their art will be liked by others. Buy what you love, as you are the one who will be living with it each day. If you are redoing an interior, try to select an amazing art piece as your starting point, then work around it all other elements in the room. Paint colors, for example, are very easy to get in any tone you want. Some artists who feel the art completely stands on its own and should have nothing to do with the decor. Here’s the simple fact. No matter how irritated artists get by the subject of art-matching-the-sofa, your art will always look better and have greater impact in the space when the decor supports the art. Wall-sized paintings can be very eye catching and really create an entire new feeling to an interior.
Hanging rugs on the wall is yet another way of achieving a striking impression in an unconventional way. At the same add they can add a very cozy effect to the space.
Textured Wallpaper surfaces are an amazing addition to any space. They are not exactly artwork per se, but the results can be quite the same. Some of them can easily be painted over so you can create even better effects.
A few plants can increase the impact and visual interest of the whole decorative effect an artwork has.
Repeating color from the art increases its impact in the room. Like it was said before, working up a color scheme from the artwork is easier then the other way around. You can also play with the shapes in the artwork as well.
Create a collage with a few different bits and bobs together into a gallery wall. You can cover from wall to wall with this option and to achieve better results plan a nice layout that fits with the style of the room.
