Home Decoration Tips
Fine art paintings are a great decoration element. They can transform spaces at home, give them character, provide a sense of belonging and create a feeling of welcome. Paintings
can also affect the ambient of the room, help in expanding small rooms or heightening low ceilings.
The impact of paintings extend beyond their ability to change the physics of a space, they also help in expending it emotionally. Choosing paintings as wall decor, helps in adding color, style and interest in the room. Placing the right painting in a room may have a greater impact that you can imagine in adding a feeling of relaxation and serenity. More often than not, I happen to walk into enclosed spaces where bare walls are simply crying for attention. Empty walls are a great place to add beauty to any room and make it feel like home.
Colorful paintings help in adding light and emotion to a room. Bright
colors attract our focus while warm tones help in providing a sense of spaciousness. As such I try to use both elements when creating my art
without giving more weight to any one of these elements.
When one needs to decorate a large wall, a series of smaller paintings placed horizontally can "down-size" the wall into more visually
acceptable dimensions. Similarly, when decorating a small wall, placing a panoramic painting will help in "stretching" the wall.
Living rooms are the most occupied places in most of our homes. This is the place where we spend time reading, watching TV, entertaining guests, relaxing and enjoy our spare time.
When decorating your home, it is the place that needs most of the attention in adding your own impression and style. When it comes to wall
decoration, a painting is usually hanged over the sofa as it is an important focal point of the room. Whether you should hang a single
painting, diptych, triptych or other multi-panel painting, depends on the space you have available and on the balance you need to give to the
entire room. It is common sense that large rooms demand large (or multi-panel) paintings, while small rooms need smaller (or single-panel) paintings.
