You don’t need to be an art connoisseur to be able to choose art. We have a number of clients who ask us to choose their artwork for them -and we do, but we also educate them on how and why we chose their pieces, because art in many ways is an extension of you and it’s a window to your personality. With so many options on the market, how do you even begin to choose artwork? Here’s our quick guide:

 

EMOTIONS
When you look at a certain piece of artwork, how do you feel? This is the very first question you need to ask your self. The artwork could be dark and moody but if it makes you feel good when you see it then you’re off to a good start, so make sure you choose artwork you love!

PROPORTIONS
Dimensions are important and you need to get them right. A beautiful piece of artwork can easily look insignificant if it’s too small and if it’s placed on a large wall on it’s own. Don’t be afraid to go bold!

COLOURS
Look around your space and identify the two most predominant colours and start with them in order to draw inspiration. So that you avoid being too ‘matchy-matchy’ also pick an accent colour that appeals to you and see if you can source artwork that incorporates it in some way.

FORGET THE RULES
Remember that personality has no rules. Sometimes the most obscure piece of artwork has the capacity to ignite your wall!
