Your furniture is moved in, your rugs are in place — but your house is missing a finishing touch of artwork. But finding the right artwork isn’t always easy. Sometimes it can feel like the hardest part of decorating! Luckily, Marlo Furniture is here to help. Here are a few things to consider when picking out artwork:
Know Your Location
First, you need to understand the wall area you’re going to be decorating. Are there any furniture aesthetics, designs or colors you should match? How much room do you have to work with? Before you shop, you must take measurements. If it’s a small wall, you don’t want something that will make it look overcrowded and too busy. If it’s a larger, taller wall, you can work with some extra-large pieces or even create a gallery wall.
The Perfect Placement
You might have the art, but where is it going to go? Make sure that your art is placed at eye level — something too high or too low will look off-putting. If it’s near natural light, you’ll be able to introduce new shadows and light dimensions to your home, and also have proper lighting that shows your artwork in all its glory.
There’s a lot of great artwork out there, but it might not be great for your home in particular. Understand the aesthetic you’re going for in your house before you pick your artwork. Maybe you’re interested in something vintage-inspired or modern — you’ll never know until you start searching!
Marie Kondo your art — does it bring you joy? If the art you’re purchasing doesn’t make you happy, then we don’t recommend making it a semi-permanent fixture in your home. Keep searching, you’ll find something!
We hope this helped you as you search for the perfect artwork for your home. And if you’re in need of more home decor inspiration, feel free to visit us and see if anything catches your eye!
