Selecting the Right Art for Your Room
After the major pieces are specified and placed, you’ll start incorporating the finishing details. Art, area rugs, window treatments, accessories, greenery, and florals all add to the personalization of the room and make the room come to life.
Of these, art can have the most impact simply because its selection is totally a matter of personal taste and style. In addition, wall accessories have a dramatic impact on a room’s balance. Without something on the walls, the furniture in a room looks unfinished. Procurement and installation of wall art will even enhance the room before the major furnishing pieces have been purchased, delivered, and set up.
The subject of the art you select will elicit certain feelings when you enter the room, and you want to be sure to align the piece with the feelings you want your room to create. Do you want your room to be restful or exciting, stimulating or peaceful? Think about the words to describe how you want to feel in this room.
List them and review these words. Are they still valid? Or are you changing direction? It happens. Better to have it happen now while you are planning. It will save you money, time, and disappointment.
