Nowadays, the time we spend at home is much longer, so it is even more necessary for you to feel well there.

An excellent way to change the environment of your home is with the use of art objects. You may bring a refined touch into your interior decoration through small changes that will make all the difference and will transform your home into a more pleasant space with a stronger identity.

Check on this post a few examples of how to combine decoration and art!

Artistic pieces allow you to stand out coverings and value the furniture. When the time comes to think how you can fit art into your interior decoration you must have three essential factors into consideration: your home or space style, where and how to position the arts in the environments and, at last, how the inherent conditions may affect the conservation of the object.

Paintings and framed arts are a great option of decoration and art. They can be put on walls, on furniture or even close to the floor and both isolated or grouped. After all, art and interior design work side by side in the creation of dream spaces.


Arts for each type of interior decoration

The art theme must make sense along the predominant decoration style of the room where you’ll put it. Arts that portrait dead nature, landscapes or that have a Renaissance style will fit perfectly in classic or more traditional decorations. In case of a modern interior decoration, frames with an abstract style or vibrant colours might be the best option.

There are certain details that you may find in your decoration style that can become useful when choosing the art we you’ll opt for.

This frame, from the artist Antonio Mora, is an excellent example of how to create a connection between the architectural details and the art, with similar inspirations.

Another type of frames that can fit into the most diverse interior decoration styles are typographic arts. The important factor in this type of art is to be sure the colours and typography of the frame match with the ambience.

If you are looking for arts of this style, Ralph Ueltzhoeffer is the ideal artist for you. Its frames fit perfectly in modern and minimalistic decorations. He uses faces of world famous artists with their written biographies.

Colours as decorative art

Regarding the colour pallete it is important to maintain balance between the colours of the art and the colours of the decoration. This does not mean they have to be exactly the same, however, it is import to exist some similarity between the elements.

The artist Sophie Derrick is well-known for the originality of her portraits and the vibrant colours she uses. In this case you can combine the colour of the decoration and art, obtaining the desired balance.
