Get Smart with Art

Artwork has the potential to add movement, colour, texture and interest to any room and when used correctly, it can have a profound effect. Read below to find out more about what influence art can have in your home.

Art can provide colour

Hang a bright or colourful picture to bring energy and life to a room, or perhaps utilise a neutral piece of artwork for a calming effect. Art can also have the power to bring out the rest of the colours in your room. 

Art can add movement & texture

Artwork can be used to introduce movement into a room and can create a rhythm between the piece of art and your furniture. Artwork can also help draw one’s eye upward and can make a room feel more balanced, particularly if your furniture is very low to the ground. This can create harmonious movement throughout the room. Textured artwork can be used to bring out other colours and textures in a room, creating a visual balance.

Art can be continually updated

Unlike other furniture pieces, if you feel like you need to bring change of design or colour to a room, you can quite simply replace a picture or add another piece. Different artwork can highlight different elements in your room, be it colour, texture or mood. A mostly-white room is a great place to start with revolving works of art.

Art can make a statement

A big, bold piece of art can have a great statement effect, and can also be used in subtler ways to add sophistication. You can use your art to tell a story or evoke a particular mood; it has the powerful ability to transform a space both visually and emotionally.
