Interior Design
One common mistake of people who are decorating their own living space is selecting art pieces from famous artists that can cost an arm and a leg but still end up not giving your home a premium vibe. One needs to be more careful in selecting art pieces they want to decorate their home with and factor in a few rules of interior design and color matching, so they can make the most out of their money. It is not only enough for the artwork to look good individually, but it also has to feel natural in the space where it will be displayed. Art for walls can be tricky for the untrained eye, but there are easy rules you can refer to keep everything in check.

Consider your Personality

You can get masterpieces from any popular artist you know but still feel nothing just by looking at it. This is because the beauty of the artwork is also relative to the person looking at them. Some things may be appealing to others but may not speak anything to you. People will have different personality types, and if you wish to invest in art for walls, you need to invest in something that connects with you. A piece of art, whether complex or simple, should be a reflection of your personality. This is why many millionaires, despite their wealth, stick to buying art from one or two artists. That is because they somehow feel connected to these artists based on the work that they produce.

Factor in your space

Your space where you intend to put in the artwork will greatly affect its overall impact. A simple artwork against a huge plain wall helps create focus and is good for educational institutions or law firms but may not be ideal for someone who just wants to feel relaxed at home. The size of the art and space it will occupy will dictate its effect on the overall mood of that space.

Ensure Contrast

The last thing you want is a dark painting against a dark-colored wall. Though this recipe will work on some people, it is generally confusing and useless to put up art that is difficult to see. If you are planning to put the art on a wall with light-colored paint, you can select artworks that have colors so they can break the monotony of the wall and, at the same time, allow its own colors to pop and be more appreciated.
