Art for a better life? Tips of the day

Having original art in the home is vital to your well-being. 

Imagine your favourite artwork hanging in your living space or standing proudly above the bed in your master suite.

There is something deeply satisfying about making a statement with wall art.

When choosing a piece of wall art to be a focal point for your space, the most important consideration are colours, size and style.

1) It creates a mood

Brain scans have revealed that looking at works of art trigger a surge of dopamine into the same area of the brain that registers desire, pleasure, and romantic love.

2) Adds personal character to your home (or office)

A bare wall is a blank canvas where you can reveal your artistic and aesthetic interests, your true personality.

The great thing about buying original art is that you can virtually do no wrong. If you love it, share it and display it.

3) Provides a colour palette and texture

An original work of art is a beautiful, meaningful way to tie everything together and create a general focal point. 

Is the room choosing the artwork or the artwork choosing the room?

4) Size, style and it makes the room appear finished

Artworks can be big or small, abstract or photography, a single piece (statement piece) or a collage of many.

Art can make rooms become comfortable working and living environments.

A home office, for example, can transform from a place of work and business to one of relaxation and productivity all with the addition of an original work of art.

The key ingredient is to choose a piece or art (colours, textures, size and style) that fits in with the decorating style you have chosen for the room.

It is all about choosing art that you love and will be happy seeing hang on your wall for many years to come.
