5 Tips for Adding Art to Your Home

Art can come across as fancy and intimidating. Sometimes you don’t even know where to begin. Here are 5 tips to get started and help you pick out some pieces you love! *Cost saving tip! Rip out pages from magazines or newspapers and frame them.

  1. Color Scheme: To begin, determine if you have certain color preferences or a style you’re trying to stick to. Abstract, modern, classic, prints, landscape, etc.
  2. Mix It Up: It’s OK to take some risks and mix high end and low end or oversize with small and vintage with new. Mix canvas with framed art or your kids artwork with a more mature print.
  3. Lacking character? Art can fix this by elevating a space, adding meaning and personality. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box – this is an area of decorating where you can bend the rules a bit and have fun with it! It can be moved easily and isn’t so permanent as other pieces you already have in your home.
  4. Art fits into any room: From the bedroom to the bathroom, art can be used anywhere.
  5. Go BIG: Large art pieces can open up a space and make it feel bigger and can be a focal point for a room. Maybe a big piece above your bed or couch.
