Choosing the Perfect Art Piece for Your Space: A Comprehensive Guide

Choosing the right artwork for your interior is both an art and science. It involves understanding the elements of design, color theory, and spatial relationships, but also intangible factors like personal taste and emotional connection. A well-chosen artwork not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your space but also reflects your personality and style.


If you're working on a new interior design project, consider discussing artwork with your designer right from the start. It opens up the opportunity to identify the perfect spot for art display and to ensure that it blends seamlessly with the overall design scheme.



At this stage, collaboration with an artist for a custom piece could be incredibly beneficial. Tailored to your specific needs and preferences, such commissioned pieces would reflect your personal style while harmonizing with the decor. Many interior designers maintain a network of artist collaborations and could recommend the best artist suiting your style and budget. So, don't hesitate to seek their advice.


Now, let's delve into some key considerations for fitting art into your interior.


Consider the size


The size of the artwork should be proportional to the wall or the space it's going to occupy. You don't want to overwhelm a small room with a large painting, or have a tiny piece of art lost on a large wall. Take measurements and choose accordingly.



Think about colors


Art can either complement or contrast the color scheme of the interior. If the room has a neutral color palette, you can choose a piece of art that pops with a bright color. Alternatively, if the room has a bold color scheme, you may want to choose a piece of art that has more subdued tones. If you're unsure, try to pick a piece that has a similar color palette as the room.




Placement matters


Think about where the art will be placed and how it will interact with the space. A piece of art can be a focal point in the room, drawing attention to itself, or it can blend in with the overall decor. Consider the room's function and purpose when placing art. For example, in a living room, a large painting above the sofa or at the opposite wall can be a focal point, while in a bedroom, a small print on the bedside table or above the bed can add a touch of personal style.


Consider the style


The art should fit the style of the interior. If the room has a traditional style, a classic painting or a landscape photograph may be a good fit. On the other hand, if the room has a modern feel, an abstract painting or a piece of contemporary art may be more appropriate.



Personal preference


At the end of the day, the art you choose should reflect your personal taste and preferences. It's important to choose pieces that speak to you and make you happy. Don't be afraid to take risks and experiment with different styles and colors until you find the perfect match for your interior.


Comission artwork


Don't be afraid to ask the artist for their input on how to fit their art into your interior. They can provide some valuable guidance on the size, color, and placement of the artwork. Additionally, as I mentioned at the begginning commissioning a piece of art specifically for your space ensures that it will be perfectly tailored to complement your interior design.


Remember, while it's helpful to know these principles, your interior should ultimately serve you and delight your senses. Art in your home should enrich your living experience. Feel free to skillfully bend these rules to create your unique interior style, brimming with artistic expression. It's your personal space, make it a reflection of the unique you.
