Design trends don’t influence fine art; rather, fine art influences design trends.

Art is becoming the dominant feature in the design world. Now, more than ever, rooms are being designed around the art instead of the décor. New techniques and cutting edge innovations in art are leading the way for other design trends. The bold graphics prevalent in much of today’s fine art are influencing simple, clean lines in décor with less decorative furniture.

Art and design have always been related, but today, experimentation and personal expression are the name of the game. Homeowners are using art to make a personal statement – your art choice has to inject a fresh outlook and say something unique about your home and you. As such, designers often prefer to have their clients select their own art that reflects their individual taste and personality. Read more on how to start with art when redecorating.

Current trends

Alternative mediums – Make an original statement with innovative techniques such as art combining texture-rich mediums like resin, oil and other mixed media.

Graphic art styling – The geometric and abstract styles and color palettes of the 60’s and 70’s are making a stylish comeback.
