Do you want to redecorate but don’t know where to start or what style you prefer? The solution is to select your artwork first - many people do not know what their style is and artwork is like a reflection of the inner personality.

Artwork is a great starting point, a roadmap for selecting wall colors by pulling together interesting color combinations represented in the piece. Artwork creates a feeling or atmosphere which can be expanded by adding compatible accessories and furnishings. Most importantly, the artwork you select tells people who you are - great design is about surrounding yourself with the things that you love and that are an extension of your personality.

Browse to get an idea of what you like and decide on your budget. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to selecting art – your artwork is about you, your tastes and creating an environment that speaks to your soul. You may find that you develop a passion for a particular artist or subject matter or that you really like a range of styles.

Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Consider the vantage point from where the art is likely to be viewed most often. For example, a simple, large image would be most advantageously viewed from a distance, such as in the center of a large living room, as opposed to a narrow hallway where the impact of the image is lost. Similarly, detailed images such as landscapes should be viewed more closely.
  • Buy what you love!
  • Have fun with it!
