I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say, “Abstract art wouldn’t look good in my house.” I’d have a lot of dollars. It’s a common misconception that abstract art works only with a modern aesthetic. Although it does look great in modern settings, it can light up the most traditional of interiors as well.
One of my objectives in designing a room is to expose clients to things they wouldn’t intuitively consider. My experience is that when clients do step outside their comfort zone, they are thrilled with the outcome. Abstract art is a bit outside that zone for many. Here are some tips for incorporating it into your home, if you haven’t done so already.

This beautiful abstract piece gives this living room a fresh perspective. It contrasts the traditional elements for a perfect transitional blend. Notice that all the pattern is provided by the art, while the palette is repeated in the textiles.
Abstract art has a great ability to set a mood. For that reason, it is a perfect backdrop for contemplative spaces like bedrooms and sitting rooms.
Abstract art can help establish a palette. Take color cues from your abstract piece by repeating a color in fabrics or lighting.
An abstract piece can cut the heavy ornamentation of traditional pieces in half. By pairing this very traditional rococo console table with abstract art, the table feels fresh and not too old fashioned.… Read Full Article

This Ideabook is for art lovers. Artists get into a real tizzy about the subject of people looking for art-to-match-the-sofa. Coming from a background as an artist, I always encourage my interior design clients to select art first if they don’t have any so they feel free to buy what they love and not worry about what it goes with. And then we can plan the decor around the art.
I’m sure I’ll get an irate artist or two commenting here. I’ve spoken with 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. Here are techniques you can use in your decor to support your art and make it even better.

1. Repetition of color and line. This art is so well supported by this room. The strong black-and-white graphic image is echoed in the black-and-white upholstery with lines that are similar to the curves in the woman’s face. Even with the bright yellow accents in the room, the art is still the standout.
Repeating color from the art increases its impact in the room. Here, the green bed pillows pull their color from the art. Without them, the art doesn’t feel quite as strong. Try it! Put your finger just over the pillows in the picture. Having that bit of green on the bed to echo the color visually strengthens the art.
The undulating lines of the vases on this table pick up the shapes from the painting and increases its visual interest.
There are a lot of ways to repeat the lines in art. This dining table emulates the curves and the color of the center of the painting. The floral display brings in more of the color.

2. Balance of color. This art has a lot of black with just a little bit of red. The black sofa with just a little red pillow keeps the same balance of colors as the art. Carrying that balance of color though the furnishings spreads the influence of the painting
As an interior designer with a fine arts background and an active painter, I find artwork to be the most important element of a room. An equal part of what I do, along with construction, project management and furniture design, is curate art and antiques collections for my clients. Artwork can often make or break a space. Below are five things artwork can do for your room.

1. Add movement. Artwork can be used to introduce movement into a room. Movement is used in the art world as a way for the artist to direct where the viewer’s eye goes and to influence the viewer’s perception. Using a piece of art that conveys a lot of movement can help create a rhythm between the art and your furniture, with the lines creating the type of movement that translates into a story.
The conveyed movement within a piece of art can be reflected in your furniture choices to create an imaginative and original design. In the room here, the form in the ink drawing by Topher Delaney relates to the vintage driftwood cocktail table, keeping the eye moving through the space.
2. Provide color. Artwork can be used to dictate or enhance a color palette. If you’re feeling stuck with your design, try selecting a piece of artwork that fits the space and create a color palette influenced by the work. Pull accent colors for decorative objects from the secondary, or less seen, colors in the work to enhance different elements of the piece.
A neutral color palette can be utilized to showcase a favorite piece of art. A bright artwork can also be used to enrich and add color to an otherwise neutral palette. The juxtaposition between bold pops of color and crisp white walls creates an eye-catching effect. ….To Read More
