How To Integrate Abstract Art Into Your Home
Abstract painting has a beauty that is incomparable to all other kinds of wall art. However, most people are intimidated by them and may feel a little unsure about integrating them into their living space. If you are an art lover who wishes to add a splash of color to your walls with abstract paintings, this guide is for you.
Abstract art for your dream home
Unlike popular opinion, you don’t need to be a seasoned art collector or work with a creative director to bring home the perfect abstract art. However you have decorated your interiors- whether it’s classic, bohemian, or minimalist- a one-of-a-kind abstract art can elevate the whole space and make it look complete.
Wondering where to start? Here are a few pointers for you to leap-
- Play by your own rules
Whenever you plan to bring a wall art home, the most important thing to do is to trust your instincts. You don’t always have to match and coordinate your decor and the newly purchased art to a T. If the abstract art you bought is something you’d like to look at, don’t worry too much about it standing out visually.
- Stick to the neutrals
When you are starting as an abstract art collector, look for paintings or prints that don't have a lot of vibrant hues, shapes, and textures. As a novice, stick to abstract paintings in neutral shades with simple graphics that add a dynamic element to your walls without overstimulating the eye.
- Be mindful of the space and scale
The size of your wall art can make or break the whole look of your interiors; which is why it is important to be mindful of the available space and the scale of the artwork you intend to purchase. Generally, larger and more prolific abstract paintings are a beautiful sight compared to smaller ones. However, opt for larger paintings only if you have enough wall space that is more or less unobstructed by other pieces of furniture. If you have a fairly small room with not much wall space, you can still get smaller abstract artworks that can sit on a shelf or can be hung over the mantel.
- Follow the accent colors
Even the most eclectic interiors will have a few accent colors that tie the whole room together. So when buying abstract art for your home, try to match these tones to bring some kind of uniformity to your decor and make the space look more refined.
- Think outside the box (room)
Most people immediately think of their living room and bedroom walls as the ideal spots to hang wall art. While these locations are more than ideal, introducing abstract wall art in an unexpected location such as the kitchen, hallway or even your bathroom (especially if you have a large one) will be a visual treat.
- Choose complementary decors to go
If you wish to be a little bit more adventurous with your abstract art escapade, you can opt to set up a gallery wall, where your chosen abstract painting or print is the centerpiece. Using complementing mediums on the wall such as photographs, sketches, and even portraits can create a unique look that’s “Instagram worthy” and keep things interesting in your home.
