What’s a home without a beautiful collection of suitable artwork? Art adds spice and life to any home’s interior decor while acting as an extension of a person’s personality. You can use artwork to transform your walls and style and create a long-lasting home for your memories. Unfortunately, it is one thing having the proper collection of artwork and quite another thing using them to their best. Believe it or not, you can have the original Mona Lisa painting—and still fail to display it correctly. So, are you stuck on how best to display your collection of artwork to have maximum impact? Here are some tips you can use to arrange artwork in your home.
Create a collage
If you’re a fan of editing pictures on your smartphone, then you’ve probably tried one or more collage editing effects. You can do the same collage effect with your artwork, especially canvas and wall paintings, as well as framed photographs and pencil sketches. For example, if you’re a lover of sketched or painted artwork, you can create an eclectic view with your art collection by combining different collections. You can also mix various Western-themed paintings with South African Art (or any other combo you prefer) to create a unique gallery on your wall. If you want to create a more modern feel, you can opt for black and white paintings with no frames.
Create a gallery
You can use your beautiful collection of artwork to create a gallery on one of your walls. This type of display works perfectly with artwork that has similar frame styles. You can either work with photographs of your personal life or a collection of your favorite paintings. First, collect the artwork you want to include in your gallery, lay them on the floor to determine how you want to arrange them. Once done, transfer your preferred layout to your wall. Just make sure you keep them at eye level so that viewers can appreciate them better.
Create a focal point
You want your artwork to be one of the first things people notice when they walk into your room. So, position them in a way that allows them to capture attention immediately. If you’re using a wall painting, ensure that they take your entire wall, or most of it. If you’re using other art objects like miniature sculptures, and other types of decorative elements that may not be large enough, you can use other things to draw attention to them. Indoor plants, for example, can be great additions to any type of artwork.
Try different locations
If you’re lucky enough to have a wide range of art collections, then you should find various surfaces to display them on. From your bookshelves, to your staircase walls, and around your furniture, there are countless possibilities. The most important thing is to ensure that the right artwork goes to the right place. Also, you don’t need to limit yourself to your living room or bedroom only, as you can spread the love to your kitchen and bathrooms.
