Prim up the Perfect Art Décor for Your Abode
Art; there is something about the way those strokes grace the plain canvas and bring out a character which one could never thought possible. An artist’s brain traverses spaces we cannot imagine, and trace it all out in the form of pieces of art which take our breaths away. Art décor is that art of fine furnishing which brings together the senses of aesthetics and allure to add a touch of classy finesse to the place you call home. While you may be the connoisseur of art, you may not always be aware of how it would be placed to bring out the best of your space. And that’s where décor experts come along and take you out of that misery, lest you make an embarrassing décor decision.
So, what is the best way to arrange art? Fret not, as we will guide you with some of the basics so you don’t end up as a novice. For the rest who believe in handing over the reign to the experts, there are a number of professional décor experts on Mansionly who can help you out.
Take it light, take it easy
Don’t place your artworks with a heavy hand. Normally, human eye starts seeing anything from left; so, make sure your lighter artworks start from the left, and finish of with the heavier ones towards the right or towards the bottom. When you are placing multiple artworks together, creating a visual balance is of utmost importance, no matter where you place them.
Kraft your woes away
You don’t need to hang, remove, and re-hang your art pieces and even expose them to the risk of eventually falling and breaking. Instead, you can simply use craft paper and cut it in the size of your artworks. Post that, paste using the painter’s tape it on the wall space where you’d like to put the original artwork. Once you are sure of the space, place your artwork there. Easy, and without any hassle.
Your living room is the space where guests spend most of the time during their visit. The space above your sofa is the best one to hang that gorgeous artwork you splurged on. It is bang in the centre, and as you place it a hand above the sofa, you have the perfect height covered. Do the same and you’d experience the change that you have brought to the overall décor scheme of the room. You can also experiment a bit by gauging the size of the sofa and its ratio as compared to the size of the artwork. For instance, smaller artworks can be placed at equal and proportionate distances from each other, to form a pattern. Oh, and don’t forget; one artwork or many, the combined scale of the artwork should not exceed 2/3rd of sofa’s size, or else it will look intimidating and tasteless.
Well, before your imagination goes anywhere else, we are talking of the placement of art in your bedroom. While placing a painting above your bed may have been a popular scene in pop culture, people hesitate while doing the same in real life. However, fret not. The only thing that you have to keep in mind here is that the painting that you choose to grace your bedroom one should possess a personal touch, viz. your own painting, or a portrait of a family, monochromes, so and so forth.
Prop to make it pop
It is not necessary to hang your artworks. You can even prop them up against walls. A tip? If your artwork is full of colours and your wall is blank, prop it up and pair it with a similar shade of furniture. Lo and behold, the space would come alive like never before.
Cook up some spice
Artwork in the kitchen? Sure. Kitchen is one space which is often ignored while decorating. However, with just the right help from the professionals and by choosing the right material, you can even transform that space. While choosing the artwork, go for vintage ones, and be ready to be blown away by the Victorian spice while you cook away to glory.
Layering with fire
Now layering is one way of arranging art décor which has not been experimented with much. But, once done with expertise, it brings out the core and rustic beauty of your home space. The best place to try out layering is your fireplace, above the mantel. As one art transitions into the other, with the layers of beauty melding in, you would be stunned to see how it affects the fireplace.
Odd is hot
Yes, it is! When going for a group of paintings on a wall, go for an odd number. Reason being that odd numbers enable a pattern and also have a centrepiece around which you can go for marvellous arrangements. Whether mirror technique or an ornamental one, everything comes alive when the number is odd.
Art décor may be tricky, but certainly adds an aura to your home. Mansionly has a bevy of experts who can help you arrange your type of art, just at the right corners of your abode. So, what’s the delay in display?
