Kolkata, the culturally rich city is a land of art and artists. When planning the interiors of your home, why to include art as an afterthought? Sometimes going the reverse way can yield amazing results.
Interior decor is something that defines the home, occupant and the vibe of the place. We spend a lot of time pondering on the colour schemes, lights and furniture but usually keep art and paintings as an afterthought. Placement of a painting or an exclusive art piece can enhance the look and feel of the entire space.
Art is the beautiful icing on the cake in any home. It’s a perfect way to add extra personality and really make the space feel true to you. So it makes sense to spend some time considering which pieces you want to display. There’s no single list of rules set in stone for how to choose art for your home, so you have plenty of options at your fingertips.
» Starting Point - Do you have a painting, print or photograph that you absolutely love? If you have some treasured pieces in hand, you’re already off to a great start. If not, find something that speaks to you, something that encapsulates how you want the rest of the room to feel, or even something that brings a smile to your face. Whatever you choose, this piece can be the anchor point that you can use as the foundation for your new collection.
» Go Solo - You can also make a big impact in your living room by choosing one large statement piece to display in a prominent area that reflects your design priorities in terms of presentation, style and colour.
» Stay Practical - You can use the art to balance out the rest of the space. Exam-ple: If the room is on the smaller side, use small impactful art pieces.
» Have Fun with It - Finally it’s important that you have fun with it and just follow your heart!
One of the many interior design rule states that every space requires a focal point. A good art helps you achieve just that. While the themes may vary, you should try to find art in a variety of different mediums to help bring a varying sense of texture into the space. If your style is more avant-garde, you could also consider small mixed installation with paintings, mirrors and frames. Touch of multiple textures can help add much needed visual weight to the interiors. A point to consider is that rough textures are make a space feel intimate and grounded whilesmooth textures bring a sleeker tenor to the room.
Wall art is that finishing element that can help pull a space together and make it feel complete. It is that little extra element that can take your space from looking merely functional to appear-ing a place right out of occupant’s thoughts. It’s all about choosing art and decor that you love and will be happy seeing it on the wall for many years to come.
