Ready, get set, decorate!

A wonderful way to create interest in your interior décor is to design with art sets. What exactly does that mean? Pair two or more works of art that compliment each other to create interest on a wall.

That could mean pairing works with similar subject matter, colors and framing for an organized and synergized feel, as with this set by Gary Benfield below…

… And this set of four, a selection from Dali’s Divine Comedy...

Or, if you’re décor is more daring and eclectic, you can even match works of art with different content, colors and dimensions. In this scenario, ensure that there is a common theme that draws the art together into a synergized collection.

The example below utilizes the common thread of etchings, that is, all of the works in the collection are hand colored etchings by Impressionist Masters. Sometimes, the seemingly haphazard arrangement of the works lends to the final overall interest of the display.

Fundamentally, an art set is a group of two or more pieces of art that work together as a team. Large art sets can be used to fill up the space in large rooms and create a focal point. Smaller sets work beautifully in smaller rooms or to compliment the focal point in larger rooms.

You can place a smaller art set on either side of a large work of art or mirror, you can hang sets diagonally in stairwells or living rooms to add interest, as in the example with Miro’s works below...

…With your imagination and the diverse art collection, the possibilities are endless!
