Wall Decorating Tip By Ian Stallings: 5 Ways Art Can Improve Your Room Design

Published by Ian Stallings March 16, 2015

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

Wall Decorating Tip By Brian Patrick Flynn: Make a Big Statement with Oversized Art

 

Wall Decorating Tip By Brian Patrick Flynn: Make a Big Statement with Oversized Art

By: Brian Patrick Flynn Published March 2, 2011

Have you ever fallen in love with a piece of art only to bring it home and find it’s hard to appreciate from a distance? Both I and my wallet are quite familiar with this. Thanks to a $940 mistake involving a gorgeous piece of pop art my toilet got very lucky, as the colorful piece is now perched proudly right above it for everyone to see as they wash their hands. Not exactly what I had in mind back at the gallery.

Something I’ve learned to appreciate is the value of oversized art. From 5- by 9-foot black-and-white photos to 8-foot sculptures, rooms sporting large-scale art prove that bigger is often better. If you’re on the fence about bringing home a particular piece but afraid it will chomp up your entire room and swallow it, take a look at these spaces and think again.
